"The Klitz were Memphis punk ground zero." -Ross Johnson
Recorded by ALEX CHILTON and SAM THE SHAM in one three-hour blast in the summer of '78, Sounds of Memphis is the first archival Klitz release. Widely regarded as Memphis' first punk band and championed by JIM DICKINSON, The Klitz featured GAIL ELISE CLIFTON on vocals and LESA ALDRIDGE (of Big Star's Third fame) on guitar. Sounds of Memphis is a Midtown lo-fi gem. Includes a version of Chilton's "Hook or Crook."
