RSD Black Friday Pick Of The Day - Big Star!
Big Star - Jesus Christ - 10" blue vinyl - Omnivore Records
Our vinyl specialist Andy selected this very special vinyl! Come see us on RSD Black Friday 11/27...we open at 7am! See full list of titles here.
Originally recorded for Big Star’s iconic Third, “Jesus Christ” has become a holiday staple. What better way to celebrate this time of year than to experience this classic track on vinyl—along with the gift of previously unissued material. The very collectible 10″ EP includes the Three Wise Men artwork from a 1973 Big Star promo poster, comes pressed on translucent blue vinyl, and contains a download card. In addition to the original album version of its namesake, the audio program features a demo of “Jesus Christ” that first appeared on the Grammy Award-winning box set, Keep An Eye On The Sky, as well as five previously unissued tracks. Fans have been clamoring for an official release of “Another Time Another Place & You” for decades, and it makes is first ever appearance here, along with a TV mix of Third’s “Thank You Friends.” Two more unissued Chris Bell instrumentals join them. An unheard demo of “Big Black Car” (the studio version also appears on Third) provides a preview of the forthcoming box set Complete Third (coming 2016).
