Default Big Star

I didn't really know where to put this, but they were power-pop so I figured i'd throw in here, especially seeing as this forum needs some positive threads. Awhile ago #1 Record, from strummer I think? Anyway, i'd been interested in them because Elliott had covered Thirteen and Nighttime, they're really good. Thirteen is probably my favorite song <.<

Recommendations:
Thirteen
When My Baby's Beside Me
The Ballad of El Goodo
In The Street
Feel

I found a Big Star download, it has 66MB on it, which is pretty big.
Not sure what's on it though...maybe all 3?

Well the first 2 were released together on a single CD so maybe it's a rip of that.

Chan Marshall got me into them by covering "Nighttime." I havent heard the first two albums but Id definitely say that Third/Sister Lovers goes beyond the definition of pop. Its such an eclectic album and its one of those that I revisit from time to time. A classic and far better in my opinion than Berlin which people try to lump it in with as being a depressing record.

I just found Chris Bell's solo album on a blog full of ABBA albums.

Strange.
