Overview:
The gig poster read: “BIG STAR IN THEIR FAREWELL U.S. PERFORM-ANCE.” Luckily, this iconic Memphis band’s homecoming show was nothing of the kind. As Jody Stephens points out in his liner notes, “We played Los Angeles three days later and went on to play together for another 16 years. No one ever said anything about the poster.”
Omnivore Recordings is proud to present Big Star’s only known professionally filmed show in its entirety. Live In Memphis chronicles that October 29, 1994 performance on 2-LP (with download card).
Contains Big Star classics like “Thank You Friends,” “September Gurls,” and “The Ballad Of El Goodo,” Chris Bell’s “I Am The Cosmos,” and covers of T.Rex, The Kinks, Todd Rundgren and more, performed by Big Star: Alex Chilton, Jody Stephens, and Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow from The Posies.
Also included are notes from filmmaker Danny Graflund, Ardent Studios’ John Fry, Jody Stephens, Jon Auer, and Ken Stringfellow in the LP packaging. Per Omnivore tradition, the first pressing of the LP will be 1,000 colored vinyl, with black to follow.

For the first time, you will not only be able to hear this legendary performance, but see it, as well. You will be in the New Daisy Theatre experiencing Big Star Live In Memphis!
