SHERBERT was originally released in 1979 in a very small edition. In that decade, Chilton had primarily been known from his recordings with Big Star. That group had disbanded several years before SHERBERT was recorded. Those who heard this music at the time either fell in love with it or were completely flummoxed by it. SHERBERT is a glorious tumult of songs that sound as though they are on the verge of collapse.
The fact is that these songs are on the verge of collapse! In retrospect, SHERBERT is the blueprint that Chilton employed for most of his subsequent recordings--a mixture of obscure covers, retooled standards, and a handful of originals. The arrangements are based on finding the heart of the song--the groove, the mood--and letting everything fall into place behind it. Working with like-minded musicians is the key to success in such an ambitious endeavor. Chilton and producer Jim Dickinson did exactly that. Of all the important albums by the best artists of our time, SHERBERT is among the most individual and compellingly strange.
