About: Big Star, then comprised of only Alex Chilton, Andy Hummel and Jody Stephens, released  Radio City in 1974, singlehandedly defining what we now know to be power pop. Chris Bell’s departure from Big Star allowed Alex Chilton the room to spread his wings here and ascertain himself as a masterful songwriter. 
Why it’s worth your time: William Eggleston took the cover photo. Oh, and it just happens to be one of the finest rock albums of all time.
