Chris Bell’s “There Was a Light”

“There Was a Light” was written by Chris Bell. Demos were made when he was in Big Star and he recorded it solo after he left. I think that’s actually Alex Chilton on vocals on the demo and Big Star played the song live after Bell left. Bell’s birthday was yesterday. His solo work was released many years after his death on the excellent I Am the Cosmos. Here’s a Wikipedia article on it. I have the Rhino version.
