Alex chilton high priest full album


High Priest is the third solo album to be released by the American pop-rock musician Alex Chilton released in 1987. It was his first full-length album since 1979's commercially disastrous Like Flies on Sherbert. Chilton fronts a solid band of Memphis/New Orleans studio musicians. The cover of the 1957 instrumental "Raunchy", was co-written by Sid Manker, who had taught Chilton guitar in his childhood at his father's expense. To promote High Priest, Chilton played more than 60 concerts between 13 September and 19 December, 1987, including numerous shows with Ben Vaughn as the support act.
