The band's first album, the humorously-titled ''#1 Record'', was quickly recorded at Ardent Studios with label founder John Fry as [[RecordProducer producer]] and released in 1972. While it did obtain widespread acclaim, Stax's financial difficulties translated into an inability to get the album into stores, torpedoing the goal that the title playfully alluded to. The album itself proved to be a landmark in the establishment of PowerPop thanks to its catchy Music/TheBeatles-plus-Music/TheWho songwriting and several of its songs have remained widely celebrated in the genre, such as "Feel", "The Ballad of El Goodo", "In the Street" (later covered by Music/CheapTrick as the theme song to ''That70sShow'') and "Thirteen". One song in particular, the chaotic, [[Music/TheRollingStones Stonesy]] rock of "Don't Lie to Me", would predict the group's sonic evolution.

** "Thirteen" has the lyrics ''Tell him what we said about [[Music/RollingStones "Paint it Black"]]''.
** And in reverse, KatyPerry's manager is a huge fan of the band and asked her to name her song "California Gurls" as a tribute after Alex died. We promise this is the last time we'll say "Big Star" and "Katy Perry" in the same sentence.
** The count-off that starts "She's a Mover" is reminiscent of Music/TheBeatles' "Taxman".
* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Andy Hummel on "The India Song", and Jody Stephens on "Way Out West" and "For You".
