Two Remastered Big Star Records Will Be Back in Print This Fall

Big Star’s influential first two albums, 1972’s #1 Record and 1974’s Radio City, which have been bundled together as a #1 Record/Radio City two-for-one album for years, will once again be available to purchase as separate albums on September 2nd. Stax Records, which distributed the LPs via audio engineer John Fry’s Ardent Records label, has remastered both albums from their original analog tapes and will also be offering the records digitally in Mastered for iTunes and high-resolution audio formats. Former R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills, who is an outspoken fan of the power-pop group, has also contributed new liner notes to the releases.
