Radio City is the second album by the American rock group Big Star. Released in 1974, Radio City was recorded during 1973 at Memphis’ Ardent Studios. Though not a commercial success at the time, it is now recognized as a milestone album in the history of power pop music. The album included “September Gurls” and “Back of a Car”, which remain among the most famous Big Star songs; both the Searchers and the Bangles have covered “September Gurls”.

Radio City’s reputation has grown since its release, with many critics and listeners of the opinion that it is not only the definitive power-pop album but one of the finest rock-music albums. As writer Richard Meltzer told an interviewer, “Big Star…is the means through which most bands today who are influenced by the Beatles get their dose of the British Invasion.” In 2003, the album was ranked No.405 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, whilst Sound And Vision ranked it No.43 on its Top 50 Albums of All Time list. Rolling Stone magazine also ranked the song “September Gurls” as No.178 on its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
