Veteran music journalist Holly George-Warren — who will be at Magers & Quinn in Minneapolis on Wednesday to read from her "A Man Called Destruction: The Life and Music of Alex Chilton" — thought she'd heard every Chilton bootleg. Then came "Live at the Ocean Club '77" last month.
"It's a great time capsule of Chilton's post-Big Star period. His deconstruction of tracks from all three Big Star albums (plus 'The Letter'), eclectic cover songs and quirky originals are a template of sets he'd play when he returned from his early '80s hiatus. Plus, the between-song banter is classic Alex."
