Publisher's Summary

Released when ELP and Elton John were plodding from one packed stadium to the next, Radio City was a radical album influenced by records that were already deemed oldies and yet sounding like a lean electrical jolt from the future.

Here, Bruce Eaton examines the key ingredients of Radio City's lasting appeal - and through extensive interviews with all of those involved, gets to the heart of the cult of Big Star.
