Song Of The Day

Song Of The Day: Big Star, “Blue Moon (Demo)”

big-star

Big Star’s album, Third, has taken on a legendary status, the sound of a band pulling apart, with a boy genius frontman writing the best material of his career, all while undergoing a mental breakdown. The resulting album was oddly unfinished yet considered a gem in its incompleteness. Over the years the album’s reputation has grown, and Omnivore Recordings has compiled the definitive statement of the album and its sessions, in a three-disc box set that presents all recordings from that era. This gorgeous demo of album highlight “Blue Moon” takes an already haunting song and makes it even more sublime.

Complete Third will be released October 14, 2016 via Omnivore Recordings.

Preorder:  Amazon / Omnivore Recordings
