Ok,this show has had a lot of conflicting info as far as dates &
personel so I used Rob Jonanovic's (fantastic,by the way) 2004 Big
Star bio for this info....even he didnt put an exact date on this show.
It states Alex was on a wicked combo of LSD & Mandrax for this show
(dunno about the acid but you can REALLY hear the downs!) & that Jody
Stephens quit right after this "show"....The book also says they were
going under the name "Sister Lovers" instead of Big Star at tis point
but to avoid confusion I used Big call it whatever you'd like,
and get ready for a wild ride through the mid-70's rollercoaster that
was Alex Chilton!

There are a few abrupt edits in between tracks here,and the overall
quality is just ok....But if you are at all interested in Big Star
or Chilton,check it out!
