Big Star: Radio City Comes to NYC

Jon Tiven, Fusion, March 1974

BIG STAR IS America's premier rock band, hands down – they'll no longer be forced into comparisons with Raspberries, Stories, Blue Ash, or any of the other good-but-derivative bands. There hasn't been an American band on a par with Big Star since the Buffalo Springfield, and before that, the Byrds.
