**Big Star -Kangaroo- 3rd LP PVC Records (1978)
This past summer I spent time in Memphis, TN where I took in the Stax’s Museum. I was surprised there to find out that Big Star’s first couple of albums came out on the Stax label which primarily featured soul and funk. This particular album was a shelved for a few years before release under various titles (3rd/Sister Lovers, Sister Lovers, Beale Street Green, 3rd, etc.). The guitar piece on this song I find particularly interesting. This song was covered by This Mortal Coil on their It’ll End In Tears LP.
