Song Of The Day 1978: Big Star - Nightime

This week, I am featuring a song-a-day from the year 1974 A.D. When you're done checking out today's song, head over to the Life On This Planet Facebook Page and click LIKE to keep up with our daily postings.

By the time Big Star's third album was released, the Memphis group had already been disbanded for four years. The only original members that remained at the time of recording, were Alex Chilton and drummer Jody Stephens. Third, or Sister Lovers - as it's also commonly called, was recorded in 1974, mastered in early 1975 and then circulated as a bootleg among fans until its official release in 1978. Please enjoy today's beautiful Song of the Day - Nightime.
