Alex Chilton - Like Flies On Sherbert, Turquoise Vinyl LP
Originally released in 1979, a step beyond the pop-perfection of BIG STAR lay Alex Chilton's darker side. This solo effort was a both brilliant and flawed drug-fueled examination of his own country roots in search of a new direction. Through songs by Ernest Tubb, Jimmy C. Newman, Roy Orbison and K.C. and the Sunshine Band, as well as some originals, Chilton produced a looser album that allowed his new found creativity to flow through the many cracks, simultaneously dividing fans into two camps: the Big Star purists, and the ones who were able to see the genius on the flip side of its demise.
