Review of Big Star – Nothing Can Hurt Me (Universal Music Canada)

Big StarGiven the fact that their career was so limited, there is only so much Big Star to go around. The accompanying release to the hotly anticipated documentary on the critically adored but commercially unsuccessful band features a treasure trove of demos, alternate mixes as well as a couple of rarities. Some of the remixes date back to the 70’s while others including the Chris Bell masterpiece I Am The Cosmos were remixed as recently as last year. If you’re unfamiliar with how wonderful and influential Big Star was, this is definitely a respectful place to start.
