...rattling on about music since 2005.
I love that song. I even like the Bangles' cover version.So how was it? Did Big Star live up to expectations?
They were really good. I hadn't heard that much of them before but was amazed how much like the Fannies they were. Same instrumentation and they even shared the lead vocals around in the same way.Would like to have heard more of them but they were only the support so...Spotify to the rescue!
Wow, never realised that Big Star were around in the 70s before.
You should definitely listen to more Big Star. The first two albums are great, and well, the third is too - it's just more bleak.Did you listen to this:http://cocktailsandrecords.net/blog/2009/04/08/song-of-the-week-o-my-soul/#comments
This is a great song. A few years ago I picked up a copy of their Radio City album in a record fair and this is the opening track. I've just noticed that there's quite a good selection of their stuff on Grooveshark so will be dipping into that in the next few weeks...
