Chris Bell - Looking Forward: The Roots Of Big Star

This 22-track collection is the first of its kind to chronicle music made by and with Bell before Big Star’s iconic #1 Record, from bands with imaginative names like Rock City, Christmas Future, Icewater, The Wallabys, and more. It examines Bell’s progress as a writer, performer, and engineer leading up to Big Star in which the sounds and roots of Big Star are completely evident. Featuring six previously unissued tracks, Looking Forward’s packaging also contains photos and liners from Grammy-nominated writer (and set producer) Alec Palao, as well as quotes from Bell’s bandmates (Jody Stephens, Terry Manning, Tom Eubanks, Steve Rhea) and collaborators (Alan Palmore, Ardent Studio’s John Fry).
