Chris Bell (January 12, 1951 – December 27, 1978) was a singer, songwriter, and guitarist born in Memphis, Tennessee. Along with Alex Chilton, he led the power pop band Big Star, which recorded albums during the early 1970s. Chris Bell left the group after their first album, #1 Record, but contributed some music and lyrics to their second LP, 1974's Radio City. He recorded as a solo artist for the remainder of the 1970s; two of these influential solo recordings, "I am the Cosmos" and "You and Your Sister," were released on a 1978 single on Car Records. These two songs became popular among collectors of Big Star-related items, and they were later covered on the 1991 Blood album by This Mortal Coil.

The Flying Burrito Brothers was an early country rock band, best known for its influential debut album, 1969's The Gilded Palace of Sin. Although the group is most often mentioned in connection with country rock legends Gram Parsons, Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Chris Hillman, the group underwent many personnel changes.

The International Submarine Band (ISB) was formed by country rock pioneer Gram Parsons, while a theology student at Harvard University, and John Nuese, a guitar player for local rock group The Trolls. Nuese is largely credited with having persuaded Parsons to pursue the country rock aesthetic he would later be remembered for, when the two first started the "ISB". The two subsequently formed The "ISB". Parsons' work with the band predates his better known ventures with The Byrds (for their 1968 Sweetheart of the Rodeo LP) and with the Flying Burrito Brothers.
