Former Box Tops and Big Star leader Chilton is an alternative god (the Replacements even sang about him). On this solo outing, he proves why, taking a crack at everything from Brian Wilson’s ”New Girl in School” to Chris Kenner’s ”Sick and Tired.” With Chilton’s gritty voice lending authority to the bar-band atmosphere, even the dippy ”What’s Your Sign Girl” aches until it breaks.
