Big Star - Big Star Story (2003) Retail CD
While I'll agree that the best place to hear Big Star is on its three original albums, this collection is not as bad as everyone has claimed. First of all, the music on here is fantastic; the songs are great regardless of context. Secondly, while it's true that there are too many live cuts on here, the live tracks themselves are very good. Third, while it would have been preferable in this case to listen to the band's evolution in chronological order, I don't always believe retrospective collection should follow this order. Nonchronological order does not necessarily equal a bad collection. Andmore… in this case, I don't find the song order to be that distracting. It's great that some of Chris Bell's solo stuff is here, but overall, the collection could have been better. The new track is not particularly good, but the worst part is that the liner notes give no indication of where these songs come from. To help out everyone, here is that information.
