Big Star's 2005 studio return
Expanded and remastered reissue on translucent blue vinyl
Includes liner notes from the band and other contributors!
Big Star formed in 1971, and in their brief four years together, created three albums that consistently make "Best of All-Time" lists. Eighteen years after officially disbanding, original members Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens joined forces with The Posies' Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow for a live performance, which led to a tour (documented on Omnivore Recordings' Live In Memphis), and years of concerts. While the live shows were a joy and surprise, a bigger surprise happened in 2005. After over a decade playing together: a new studio album. As Ryko A&R's Jeff Rougvie said. "It was the easiest approval for a project I ever got."
In Space features 11 originals and a cover of The Olympics' "Mine Exclusively" recorded where Big Star began, at the classic Ardent Studios. The new line up was creating a new chapter for the band while minding and honoring its past.
With original vinyl going for outrageous prices, In Space returns as an LP on translucent blue vinyl. Packaging contains liner notes from Rougvie, original album co-producer/engineer Jeff Powell (who also cut the new vinyl), assistant Ardent engineer Adam Hill, and surviving band members Jon Auer, Ken Stringfellow, and Jody Stephens.
Expanded and remastered, In Space finally returns to earth. Prepare to blast off again!
