    Big Star is one of those bands that should have gotten big but never did. Their influence is in who loved them and went on to brighter places. Here is Big Star’s Stroke It Noel which references rock classic Do You Want to Dance?

    Big Star never really did anything for me, but I’m giving this record a listen right now, and I’ll be damned. THIS.IS.A.GOOD.RECORD!

    I’ll agree, too, with the author, What’s Going Ahn and Morpha Too could have been left in the vault.

    I’m In Love With A Girl is a sweet song, but it’s either the first song Chilton ever wrote, or he wrote it during a bathroom break in the studio.Report

    There’s a documentary called ‘Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me’ which I saw at an XPN Music Film Festival in 2013 which has footage of the group from the beginning, and helps explain what made them great as well as what hurt their commercial success. I hadn’t heard of them till I saw it. Apparently you can watch it on YouTube or Amazon Prime, etc. for 2.99, if my Google search is accurate. I highly recommend it!Report
