The Incredible Big Star Box Set '68 - '75

"Sure, it would've been nice to have been huge
at the time. But, here we are, 30 years later, and Big Star is still
playing, our music is turning up in movie soundtracks, and young people are
still excited to discover the records. I mean, if that isn't success, I
don't know what is."
