Being able to present two of Alex's staggeringly beautiful demos on vinyl for the first time. These demos come from the transitional recording sessions he made with Terry Manning at the Ardent studio in 1969, between the disbanding of the Box Tops and the formation of Big Star. Alex's songcraft was already remarkable - as these recordings prove - and this release represents a fascinating, exploratory period in the career of one of pop's most enigmatic talents.
