I am a big star fan and encourage you to sample some big star, at this price (2 albums for £2.99) it is simply a steal. I already have these albums but the cd has been played so much it has started to fail! So I ordered again at this ludicrous price.

Do a search and see why you should own these 2 albums - don't take my word for it

Here is a review:

The problem with coming in late on an artwork lauded as "influential" is that you've probably encountered the work it influenced first, so its truly innovative qualities are lost. Thus, if you are hearing Big Star's debut album for the first time decades after its release (as, inevitably, most people must), you may be reminded of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers or R.E.M., who came after -- that is, if you don't think of the Byrds and the Beatles, circa 1965. What was remarkable about #1 Record in 1972 was that nobody except Big Star (and maybe Badfinger and the Raspberries) wanted to sound like this -- simple, light pop with sweet harmonies and jangly guitars. Since then, dozens of bands have rediscovered those pleasures. But in a way, that's an advantage because, whatever freshness is lost across the years, Big Star's craft is only confirmed. These are sturdy songs, feelingly performed, and once you get beyond the style to the content, you'll still be impressed.


Bargain schmargain! Love 'em already:thumbsup:

Been meaning to pick up some Big Star for ages but could never decide which album to get. Looks like you've helped me decide I need two ;-).

Yes, #1 record is their first album, radio city the 2nd.

Both are incredible. The production quality is so immense you will not believe #1 record was recorded in 1972.

Hope you enjoy!

Will do!

Shame Holocaust isn't on either, could do with some cheering up. ;-D
