I know people who get very annoyed about anybody having the audacity to cover Big Star. Not one for them today, then. I do think that Mr Dulli treats the song with respect but does add a little something here, Nightime originally appeared on Big Star's third album,'Third/Sister Lovers' an album that was once described as "amongst the most harrowing experiences in pop music" this was obviously pre the Spice Girls and although I wouldn't put it that strongly, it is not an album you would play prior to going out for a fun night on the town.
