Big Star - #1 Record [Purple Vinyl]
A perfect album, essential listening and one that every home should have. For our money, the best album ever recorded.
Vinyl reissue of the debut album #1 Record from Big Star, originally released in 1972.
+ Limited Purple Vinyl.
Big Star can be ranked alongside the Velvet Underground and the Sex Pistols as one of the major inspirations for the indie and alternative rock movements. The group's first two albums, have influenced everyone from REM to Teenage Fanclub to the Replacements to Nirvana. Their debut, #1 Record, combined the melodiousness and perfectly arranged feel of the mid-period Beatles with the raw rock kick of the early Kinks and the jangly country-rock beauty of the Byrds. Feel, Don't Lie to Me, and When My Baby's Beside Me feature stinging guitar licks, punchy rhythms, and hooks galore, and sound like someone discovering rock and roll for the first time. Alex Chilton's Give Me Another Chance and Chris Bell's Try Again, on the other hand, are acoustic ballads with exquisitely beautiful, layered harmonies. Chilton's 13 and The Ballad of El Goodo are bright, unforgettable paeans to innocence.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
