Gimmer Nicholson :: Christopher Idylls

Did Big Star secretly record an album of delicate acoustic guitar instrumentals for pioneering new age label Windham Hill? They most certainly did not -- but Christopher Idylls by Gimmer Nicholson is about as close as we'll get to such a dream project. Recorded in the late 1960s (but not released until the 1990s), the album is seeing its vinyl debut soon, thanks to the good people at Light in the Attic.

The Big Star connection is explicit: Nicholson made Christopher . . .
