Comment:

The soul-soaked hits Alex Chilton tore off with the Box Tops would've been enough of a lifetime achievement for most artists, but they were merely the beginning of his story. Roaring out of Memphis with shaggy hair and sharp guitar hooks, Big Star put power pop on the map with brawny riffs and sugar-sweet melodies — the group's minimal sales were offset by their [i]massive[/i] influence. Later, Chilton followed his offbeat vision into a wonderfully weird solo career as unpredictable and inspired as the man himself. The tunes we've brought together right here hail from all of Chilton's phases, showing his many faces — tragic, joyous, daring, goofy, always unfailingly [i]human[/i]. And maybe in the end it's that last quality that lodged his songs so permanently into the hearts of his fans. On March 17, 2010, he was taken from us way too soon; thankfully, [i]nothing[/i] can take away his music.
