Alex Chilton: The Big Star of New York's Underground

Mitchell Cohen, Phonograph Record, June 1977

CHAPTER THREE in the adventures of a bona-fide, under-acknowledged rock hero is currently in progress. At the moment, the story is mostly taking place in the lower regions of New York City, but with some more exposure, a little luck and a recording contract, Alex Chilton will be able to spread to urban and rural areas throughout the U.S.
