1970 comprises the sessions that would have formed Alex Chilton's first solo album. As the title suggests, Chilton recorded these songs after he left the Box Tops but right before he joined Big Star -- appropriately, the music sounds caught between the Box Tops' blue-eyed soul and Big Star's jangly power pop. It careens between charming tributes to R&B and pop (a medley of the Archies' ''Sugar, Sugar'' and James Brown's ''There Was a Time''), and his originals, which only hint at the heights he would reach with Big Star.
