thanks for that tom... that was really depressing reading so im glad i already knew a lot of the story
have you got this big star box set keep an eye on the sky?
i never bought it cos it was so expensive & you never know when you buy an album of alternate versons if your just going to ruin things for yourself & destroy the specialness of the band but if you cant get anything new thats all there is left to get
i still keep looking at it cos ive got a birthday coming up
september gurls is a contender for my fave song of all time

No, I never bought it for pretty much the same reason, too $$. (sorry, the board doesn’t do pounds!) SG is just about the most perfect pop song ever done. I love everything about it. BTW, I was quoting The Replacements when I said that I never travel far without a little Big Star. :laugh:
