Comment

Thank you to all our amazing backers! We've made it over our goal and it's all because of you! And as promised we have a couple more truly incredible rewards to offer! Any additional funds we receive will be put to VERY good use - we assure you!

BIG NEWS! We just got word from John Fry that he is offering the extremely rare opportunity to come to the famed Ardent Studios to join him and Jody Stephens in the studio for a once-in-a-lifetime “listening session.” You will be able to sit in the same studio where Big Star recorded all three of their iconic records as John mixes the individual multi-tracks and explains how these incredible records were made while Jody gives background on the recording process of the band. This is truly the ultimate fan experience! Included is a guided tour of Ardent Studios by John and Jody as well as lunch at the BBQ Shop.

We also just confirmed a special screening of the film - and you can be a part of it!

You and a guest can be the first to see the nearly completed film for an exclusive test screening on July 26th in Memphis with a performance after the screening with surprise guests. (You must get yourself to Memphis)
