Artist: Alex Chilton. Album: Free Again The 1970 Sessions.

Album · 2012 · 20 Songs. 14. Free Again (Stereo Remix with Alternate Vocal). 15. Every Day As We Grow Closer (Mono Mix). 16. Come On Honey (Mono Mix).

One thing that instantly resonates about Alex Chilton‘s latest release is the fact that these sessions are from a hazy, important moment after Chilton’s somewhat straitjacketed Box Tops days and helped fuel the creative wonder to be found in his later Big Star work. Featuring six previously unreleased songs as well as the 12 track LP that constituted the now out of print Rhino-released 1970, it’s a window into a particularly interesting point in Chilton’s life, tellingly explained in the lyrics of the swaying Free Again : I’m free again to sing my songs again, free again to end my longing. These sessions are a timely reminder of the musician and the man Chilton wanted to become: the musician who would provide us a sense of magic through a lifetime of perseverance. Essential Tracks: Come on Honey, The EMI Song (Smile For Me).

The music on Free Again: The 1970 Sessions was recorded by Chilton secretly at Ardent Studios in Memphis (where Big Star later recorded) while Chilton was still under contract with Moman at American Studios. It could not be released until his original contract expired in 1996.

After the dissolution of the Box Top in 1969 Alex Chilton began to record music for his first solo album. This happened over a longer period during of 1970. Like the early Big Star the album is recorded in John Fry's Ardent Studios, and Chilton are musically supported by Ardent acquaintances such as as producer and t Terry Manning and drummer Richard Rosebrough. Logically the music places itself somewhere between the soul-pop sound of the Box Tops and the more progressive power-pop-oriented sound of Big Star.
