The band was formed in 1971, when Chilton (former lead singer for '60s blue-eyed soul group The Box Tops) joined Bell, Hummel and Stephens' band Icewater. Taking the name "Big Star" from a regional grocery store chain, they were quickly snatched up by Ardent Records, a subsidiary of the famous soul/R&B label Creator/StaxRecords. Stax had hit a bad spell and its future was uncertain, so they thought Ardent and Big Star would become successful and manage to stave off the company's decline.

* 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.
