* DolledUpInstallment: Everyone involved seems to agree that ''Third'' wasn't intended as a Big Star album, but it's still not clear whether the plan was to release it as an Alex Chilton solo album, or whether it was technically supposed to be a side project by Chilton and Stephens under the name Sister Lovers. Either way, by the time it got taken off [[TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment the shelf]] it was retroactively credited to Big Star.
