Big Stars Play Big Star (a Spotify playlist)

Info: Originally (March 2010) this playlist was meant as tribute to Alex Chilton, mashing up covers of Box Tops, Big Star & solo songs, plus something more. It was compiled in a rather quick & messy way, few hours after Chilton's death. In 2016, the playlist morphed almost exclusively in a collection of well known artists (Elliott Smith, Counting Crows, Placebo, Jeff Buckley, Yo La Tengo, Afghan Whigs...) covering Big Star songs. With some little exceptions, at the end.
