Some of the most charming and chaotic rock 'n' roll EVER, desert island disc material!!!

I feel silly talking about the production values of this record, when I should be focusing on the music within but wow it's great to see this one given the care it deserves. Unlike the reissue we had before this, the William Eggleston cover photo doesn't look like shit and the back cover layout is as intended including the portrait of Jim Dickson. Sundazed has really knocked it out of the park! - Nic


Sundazed present a reissue of ALEX CHILTONs Like Flies On Sherbert, originally released in 1979. A step beyond the pop-perfection of BIG STAR lay Chiltons darker side. His 1979 solo effort was a both brilliant and flawed drug-fueled examination of his own country roots in search of a new direction. Through songs by Ernest Tubb, Jimmy C. Newman, Roy Orbison, and K.C. and the Sunshine Band, as well as some originals, Chilton produced a looser album that allowed his new found creativity to flow through the many cracks, simultaneously dividing fans into two camps: the Big Star purists, and the ones who were able to see the genius on the flip side of its demise.
