Reissued 2017, originally released 1995
As lead singer of The Box Tops and co-founder of Big Star, Alex Chiton's place in rock history would have been solid. But, he was never one to rest on his laurels. An enormous music fan himself, he consistently reinvented himself musically throughout his career. The '90s found him crooning a set of standards (on Clichés, his first full-length in seven years), touring with a reformed Big Star, and releasing 1995's A Man Called Destruction.
