Keep an Eye on the Sky

December 27, 2010

For Christmas I got a beautiful box set of Big Star called Keep an Eye on the Sky. It has all my favorite tracks on it like The Ballad of El Goodo, What’s Going Ahn, Back of a Car, Jesus Christ, and Thirteen. All these tracks have both the original release and alternate takes. The set comes with a really nice book with great band photos. The best part of the album though is the 4th Disc that includes live tracks from Lafayette’s Music Room in Memphis, TN, which has never been released. Finally it includes a video of the band performing Thirteen. It was released off of Rhino records.

Here’s a picture of the set:
