Synopsis

This 2014 package is Big Star's only known professionally filmed show in its entirety. Live In Memphis chronicles that October 29, 1994 performance at the New Daisy Theatre on Beale Street. Includes Big Star classics like "Thank You Friends," "September Gurls," & "The Ballad Of El Goodo," Chris Bell's "I Am The Cosmos," & covers of T.Rex, The Kinks, Todd Rundgren and more, performed by Big Star: Alex Chilton, Jody Stephens, with Jon Auer & Ken Stringfellow from The Posies. Also included are notes from filmmaker Danny Graflund, Ardent Studios' John Fry, Jody Stephens, Jon Auer & Ken. Big Star inspired a fevered allegiance among fans of power pop, giving rise to a cult of believers who spent decades spreading the gospel. Their enthusiasm turned this obscure Memphis pop band-one that got little airplay, sold few records, and only played a handful of times-into a remarkable rock and roll resurrection story. Big Star's trek from obscure Memphis band to standard bearers for an entire genre of music has never been fully mapped-until now.
