Big Star‘s first two albums are to be remastered and reissued, according to a report on Rolling Stone.

#1 Record and Radio City, which have been bundled together as a two-for-one album for years, will be available as separate albums again on September 2 with liner notes by R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills.

Stax Records, which distributed the LPs via audio engineer John Fry’s Ardent Records label, has remastered both albums from their original analog tapes and will also be offering the records digitally in Mastered for iTunes and high-resolution audio formats.

“Songwriting has always been, for me, the most vital gauge of a band’s quality, and these guys were clearly masters,” says Mills in a press release. “Big Star gave you something satisfying to listen to, no matter how many times you heard them.”

Meanwhile, a documentary, Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, is set for release in the UK on August 1.
