Chris Bell's "You & Your Sister"

Chris Bell from the 1970s cult band Big Star had a brief, incandescent solo career. He died young and overlooked, though I wonder if he hid his love away too completely. He may have undone himself.
This recording came out around 1992, long after it was recorded and Bell gone. In his chords and words there is a pleasure and longing for someone that cannot be reconciled; an old joy and long night imagining it again.
From the album I am the Cosmos
