Album News: Big Star – Keep an Eye on the Sky Boxset

Big Star are one of those essential bands. Like the Beatles or the Stones, except not as well known, but just as good, or maybe even better. Number 1 Record or whatever you want to call it is a classic, no matter who you ask. And now they’re doing a Neil Young and raiding their archives.

Keep an Eye on the Sky is a four disc boxset due for release on September 15th. It’s filled with rarities and unreleased tunes. You can stream the previously unreleased ‘Lovely Day’ here:
