Tracks 1–4 from their third album, "Third/Sister Lovers" (first released by PVC Records, 1978). Tracks 1 ("Kizza Me"), 2 ("Thank You Friends"), 3 ("Big Black Car"), and 4 ("Jesus Christ") composed by Alex Chilton.

Third (reissued in 1985 as Third/Sister Lovers) is the third album by American rock band Big Star. Sessions started at Ardent Studios in September 1974.

A shambling wreck of an album, Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers ranks among the most harrowing experiences in pop music; impassioned, erratic, and stark, it's the slow, sinking sound of a band falling apart. Recorded with their label, Stax, poised on the verge of bankruptcy, the album finds Alex Chilton at the end of his rope, sabotaging his own music long before it can ever reach the wrecking crew of poor distribution, indifferent marketing, and disinterested pop radio

Big Star dared to be poppishly offbeat when both pop music and nonconformity were being beaten back by the industry-driven push toward corporate rock and laid-back singer-songwriters. Making matters more difficult, Big Star hailed from Memphis, a city with a long-standing rhythm & blues tradition but hardly a Liverpool when it came to pop bands. Finally, Rykodisc has also unearthed an album’s worth of material by founding member Chris Bell, who went solo after Record and died in a car wreck in 1978. Third is guitarist-singer Chilton’s untidy masterpiece. It is beautiful and disturbing, pristine and unkempt - and vehemently original. In it you can hear loose ends beginning to fray, but the main fabric retains a haunting brilliance.

Big Star - Third/Sister Lovers. My gut reaction to hearing Kangaroo for the first time after a few years of not hearing it: Wow, this and ‘Ashes Of American Flags’ are the exact same song! Which is not true at all, but it’s fun to say. The soulbond between this record and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is all too clear to me now. I’ve never thought of this as a Big Star record. I don’t think Alex Chilton did either. It’s a logical extension of the shaggy darkness that fought its way into Radio City, sure, but this is ground zero. Strings help this album so much. Lots of Left Banke homages that I never noticed before. Jody Stevens’ only song For You is great too!

Frustration took its toll on band relations: Bell left not long after the first record's commercial progress stalled, and Hummel left to finish his college education after a second album, Radio City, was completed in December 1973. The band's third album was finally issued soon afterward; titled Third/Sister Lovers, it found limited commercial success. Shortly thereafter, Chris Bell was killed in a car accident at the age of 27.
