While I l love a great deal of the music of Alex Chilton, I find it difficult to talk about it with any sense of authority.
I even got to meet Alex a few times (unwittingly), but that experience did nothing to help clarify my thoughts, or to provide any sense of perspective. I guess I just ought to let it be said that Alex Chilton provided some of the musical high points of my life, while remaining one of the most mercurial – and often frustrating – musicians of his era. I was saddened to hear that he had passed away suddenly on March 17, 2010, but Heidy took it personally, as she knew Alex socially.
This show is dedicated to a few highlights from his career, including;
The Letter – The Box Tops
Cry Like a Baby – The Box Tops
The Ballad of El Goodo – Big Star
Thirteen – Big Star
O My Soul – Big Star
Back of a Car – Big Star
September Gurls – Big Star
I’m In Love with a Girl – Big Star
Thank You Friends – Big Star
Holocaust – Big Star
Make a Little Love – Big Star
