Third - Big Star

(PVC)

Third

Released: March 1978

Recorded: 1974 at Ardent Studios, Memphis, Tennessee

Genre: Power pop

Length: 52:34

Label: PVC

Producer: Jim Dickinson


Third, also (since 1985) re-issued as Sister Lovers, is the third studio album by American rock band Big Star. It was recorded in 1974. Though Ardent Studios created test pressings for the record in 1975, a combination of financial issues, the uncommercial sound of the record, and lack of interest from singer Alex Chilton and drummer Jody Stephens in continuing the project prevented the album from ever being properly finished or released at the time of its recording. It was eventually released in 1978 by PVC Records.

After two commercially unsuccessful albums, Third documents the band's deterioration as well as the declining mental state of singer Alex Chilton. It has since gone on to become one of the most critically acclaimed albums in history and is considered a cult album. Rolling Stone placed the album at number 449 on its "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list.


No Singles released from the Album
