Christopher Branford Bell (January 12, 1951 – December 27, 1978) was an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Along with Alex Chilton, he led the power pop band Big Star through its first album Record (1972)

In 2010, to honor Chilton after his passing, dB's founder and Chilton superfan Chris Stamey organized a concert in which a number of musicians who were influenced by Big Star re-created the difficult third album at a special concert in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. After staging several similar concerts in the United States, Europe, and the . This album is clearly the work of people who deeply love Alex Chilton's music and want to do it justice, and there are plenty of moving individual performances in this set. But taken together, this is no substitute for the original Big Star recordings (and the participants would probably be the first to concur).

However I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. Such a great album of songs that really should be given a good listen to. Honestly, as much as I love Chris Bell, I think that making him the prominent figure of this is sort of a crime. By then, Big Star had become an iconic reference among 1980s indie pop bands, and with Alex Chilton’s new Big Star formation in 1993, interest in Bell continued to grow. The next cache of Bell material to turn up were pre-Big Star recordings by The Jynx, Rock City, Christmas Future and Icewater on collections dedicated to Big Star and the Ardent label.

When the album was rejected, Big Star called it quits, and Chilton headed out on his own in late 1975, restarting the solo career he'd put on hold for Big Star. From the sound of his first eight years of solo work, Chilton had no interest in trying to play ball with record labels and radio programmers. He produced early records by the Cramps and left Memphis for New York. His solo work in the late 70s and early 80s was confrontational and often had more in common with the Red Krayola than the Beatles and the Kinks. Chris Bell, Jody Stephens, and Andy Hummel were still calling themselves Icewater when Alex Chilton first came to see them, and this was the song he presented to them that made them invite him into the band. They renamed themselves after a Memphis-area grocery store chain and put "Watch the Sunrise" on their first album.

Big Star, for the uninitiated was, perhaps, one of the first non commercial rock bands who helped form the sub genre power pop prior to their first breakup in 1974. Two of the original four members did a twenty year reunion tour in 1994, with Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer of the Posies, filling in for the two absent members. Stringfellow sang the opener, inspired no doubt by his 1994 reunion performance with Chilton and Stephens. Dan Wilson, lead singer of Seismonic, joined by the soothing vocals of the Bangles came next, followed by Mike Mills taking a competent turn as lead singer. The entire ensemble appeared onstage for a choiresque finale of the third album, singing a heartfelt Thank You Friends, while a packed house of adulate fans offered an extended standing ovation all throughout the song.

Big Star was an American power pop band formed in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1971 by Alex Chilton, Chris Bell, Jody Stephens, and Andy Hummel. The group broke up in 1974, and reorganized with a new line-up nearly 20 years later. While primarily inspired by the music of the Beatles and other British Invasion bands, acknowledging too the jangle pop and power pop of the period, Big Star also incorporated dark, nihilistic themes to produce a striking blend of musical and lyrical styles. xvi, 155, 160 The body of work resulting from the first era was a precursor of the.

"Thanks You Friends (Movie Mix)" is exclusive to this promo. Anything else?

Thank you! For what it's worth, "Thank You Friends (Movie Mix)" is NOT the hidden "Thank You Friends (New Remix / Vocals & Strings)" from the recent box. I haven't heard "Thank You Friends (TV Mix)" so can't compare with that one, unfortunately.

Since the packaging is unclear the Alex Chilton tracks may or may not be Movie Mixes, if so then a "The EMI Song (Smile For Me)" and "Come On Honey" in Movie Mix form would be exclusive. Otherwise all the Chilton tracks would probably be from the Omnivore release "Free Again" here: https://www.discogs.com/Alex-Chilton-Free-Again-The-1970-Sessions/master/454895Also exclusive as far as I can tell is the Chris Bell with Keith Sykes "Stay With Me (Movie Mix)" and "For You (Movie Mix)", in addition to "Thank You Friends (Movie Mix)" which might be the hidden "Thank You Friends (New Remix / Vocals & Strings)" from the Complete Third set or the "Thank You Friends (TV Mix)" from the Jesus Christ EP. I only own the Complete Third, so I don't know what's on this promo or the EP. I'm sure I'll buy both some day and hopefully remember to report back.

I think "For You (Movie Mix)" is also exclusive to this disc.
