I have no idea who Big Star is. But I just recently found this fantastic cover of one of their songs done by Wilco. I can’t really give an opinion on which is better since I’ve only heard the cover, but I am so enamored by the cover that I don’t really have a desire to hear the original. I can’t imagine it being any better than this. But I guess it’s only fair that I give them some credit for writing a great song. Who knows maybe I’ll be writing a whole piece on this mysterious Big Star soon. But until then, enjoy this great cover, by the great people formally known as Wilco.
