Big Star - I Got Kinda Lost [2013] (9 x CD's)

 

BIG STAR

Big Star - I Got Kinda Lost [2013] (9 x CD's)

This is the 2013 original  'I Got Kinda Lost' Big Star box set. Previously in 2006 this set was contained to four discs and was jam packed with all kinds of Big Star related tracks. Like the previous incarnations of 'I Got Kinda Lost', this 2013, 9 x CD compilation attempts to tell the story chronologically of Big Star through their studio outtakes and alternate versions by keeping it more Big Star centric through the prism of Chris Bell and Alex Chilton, the architects of the band.

The tracks are split up between the CD's to a timeline that carries the listener from 1965 to roughly 1975. This massive compilation is what one would call a 'fantasy release'. It's designed to look 'official' but clearly it is not.  In fact, this box set carries a fake catalog number, which is a direct homage to Chris Bell and Andy Hummel who briefly had the idea (as a joke) that if Ardent/Stax didn't release their completed #1 Record they were going to do it themselves (√† la bootleg it) and give it the mythical catalog number ST100/6. Their little idea has now come full circle, like a bridge to the past. (Amazon)

    1. Hi Stephen,
      I love this group. They never really made the big time despite some fantastic songs. I always get chills when I hear the hauntingly yearning “Thirteen.”

      Cheers.

  2. For me, it is a real Christmas gift this box. I've always liked Alex Chilton, and as you say "Chris Bell and Alex Chilton, the architects of the band." It's really great. Thanks for this BB!

  4. Wow. Alex was my neighbor when I lived in New Orleans. He never once let on as to who he was - was just Alex. So sad that he died so damn young. Thanks, BB and happy holidays to you and yours.

  7. Thanks! A wonderful cornucopia of tunes from a wonderful band. No idea this existed. It's a great complementary set to that Complete Third collection released a couple of years back. Thanks again.
