Bruce Eaton - Radio City (Bloomsbury)

$14.99

Pocket size edition from the 33 1/3  album series!

"Released when ELP and Elton John were plodding from one packed stadium to the next, Radio City was a radical album influenced by records that were already deemed oldies and yet sounding like a lean electrical jolt from the future. Here, Bruce Eaton examines the key ingredients of Radio City's lasting appeal- and through extensive interviews with all of those involved, gets to the heart of the cult of Big Star." Bloomsbury Books

“What Eaton's book has going for it is a personal connection to Chilton that provides him with rare access to the somewhat reclusive icon and an insistence on focusing more on the music itself and the circumstances of its recording rather than the more familiar personality-based story of the band's brief initial life.” –  The Memphis Flyer

“...[Eaton's] been able to interview Chilton in depth, plus other principal players in the LP's conception including Big Star members Jody Stephens and Andy Hummel and Ardent Records founder John Fry. The emphasis is on music so we learn about their influences...” –  Mojo, November 2009
