Big Star Vintage Video

We were trolling around the youtubes the other day, and stumbled upon this gem of a vid that we thought you might like. We've been on a bit of a Big Star kick lately, so that's probably why we ended up on this little tidbit - who knows? Anyway, it's some great footage shot by Chris Bell and Andy Hummel during the recording of the band's first album, #1 Record.

Why the poster in question chose to pair such vintage video with audio from the band's third record, we have no idea. Go figure. Either way, it's an awesome look back into the reality of the moment when these guys were just getting started, and we've provided a slightly more era-appropriate soundtrack below. Enjoy!
