Omnivore Recordings, the folks that recently put together a Big Star Third vinyl reissue, has another treat up its collective sleeve for Alex Chilton fans. On Jan. 10, they will release “Free Again: The ‘1970’ Sessions” on LP, CD, and digital.
Here is how they explain this release:
“Free Again: The ‘1970’ Sessions” are the first solo recordings from a post-Box Tops/pre-Big Star Alex Chilton. The album, mixed and engineered by Terry Manning, will be released as a 20-track CD featuring six previously unreleased songs, and 12-track LP. The first 1,500 LPs will be pressed on limited-edition clear vinyl (black vinyl thereafter). The first 500 LP orders from the Omnivore Recordings webstore will come with a bonus 7″ that includes two additional versions of the previously unreleased “All We Ever Got From Them Was Pain” – the original mix and the demo. The album will also be available digitally at all major online retailers, as well as the Omnivore Recordings webstore.
