Complete Third: Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes (2LP, Includes Download Card)

Big Star
Complete Third: Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes (2LP, Includes Download Card)

"Double LP including every originally release master recording!
The story of Big Star’s Third is legendary, and its eventual release on numerous labels through the years saw tracks added, removed, and re-sequenced. Complete Third gathered up all existing tracks recorded for the album, was years in the making, and its eventual 3-CD release placed it on countless “Best of 2016” lists. Vinyl components began rolling out at the end of last year with Vol. 1: Demos To Sessions To Roughs arriving in November and Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes in February 2017. Now, Vol. 3: Final Masters is here to complete the trilogy.

Complete Third: Volume 3: Final Masters contains every released master recording from all officially released versions of the original Third on 3 sides of vinyl. As an added bonus, the CD boxed set’s hidden track (a previously unissued Strings/Vocals-Only Mix of “Thank You Friends”) takes its place on a specially etched Side 4. A download card is included for the audio, as well as for the full digital booklet, featuring photos, Bud Scoppa’s essay, and remembrances from many involved with and influenced by this incredible record.

This is the ultimate way to hear what everyone heard throughout the years, on different labels, and in different countries. The third time is the charm for Complete Third on vinyl.
