:headpop: i just heard this! it's pre Big Star but sounds like an out-take from Like Flies On Sherbert
Dude, whatever you do, if you like "Flies on Sherbert", grab a copy of "Free Again: The 1970 Sessions". Absolutely KILLER. Some of my favourite Chilton stuff ever. :tu:
I've always been meaning to get it, is there a decent vinyl version?
Yep - the Omnivore version from 2012 (OVLP-13) is excellent. Black vinyl edition is this one: https://www.discogs.com/Alex-Chilton-Fr ... se/3889421
