In , after the Box Tops and before forming Big Star, Alex Chilton holed up in a Memphis studio and recorded an album's worth of material. Omnivore Records has now reissued those sessions, long out of print, with bonus tracks.
By , Alex Chilton was barely old enough to vote but already enough of a music biz veteran to be completely jaded by the industry. They chose almost all of the Box Tops' songs, dictated how they should be sung, and relegated Chilton's own compositions to hastily recorded B-sides, denying the singer not only his creative freedom but potential royalties as well.
Whether this was the heavy hand of a svengali or the harried influence of a producer-cum-babysitter is debatable, but after an aborted tour of Europe, the Box Tops fell apart.

The sessions were casual and low-key, resulting in a full album of material that was never released. Instead, Chilton formed a new band, called Big Star , which translated British power pop to American shores. But those sessions became lore among Big Star fans, passed around as rumors or bootlegs until , when Ardent released them as That collection has since gone out of print, and now Omnivore Records has reissued it with bonus tracks, following up last year's excellent white-label edition of Big Star's Third.

The transitions can be jarring, especially as he switches between his low, gruff vocals and his mod-ish falsetto. It's hard to believe it's the same human being singing those songs. And yet, on some level, this collection may be one of the purest expressions of Chilton's personality-- not only his dreamy ruminations but also his coarse humor.
