Product Description

Legendary 80's rockers Big Country who have reformed and recently announced 7 shows in December/January have added 14 more in April. The band exploded onto the scene in 1983 with anthemic songs such as 'Fields Of Fire' and 'In A Big Country' which were culled from their classic debut album 'The Crossing' which sold several million worldwide. They followed up with a number one album 'Steeltown' and released 8 studio albums all of which entered the Top Ten. Big Country released 28 singles 5 of which were also Top Ten. Approaching their 30th anniversary, these concerts make a period of celebration that will not only embrace their illustrious past but also honour the life and times of original lead singer, guitarist and co-founder Stuart Adamson, who passed away so tragically in 2001. Taking on the mantle of lead singer and joining the band for these dates and more will be Mike Peters of fellow celtic rockers The Alarm. The next in the series of Big Country rarities are tracks taken from co-founder Bruce Watson's vaults and compiled by him, masterered by bass player, Tony Butler. Bruce also writes the sleeve notes. The 8 page booklet also has rare Big Country photos. The new line up consists of: Tony Butler - Bass Guitar and Vocals Mark Brzezicki - Drums and Vocals Mike Peters - Vocals and Guitar Bruce Watson - Guitar and Vocals Jamie Watson - Guitar

A worthy addition to the Big Country completists library here. These tracks are sourced by Bruce Watson and mastered by Tony Butler. They are rare indeed as they were not often played live. They are from North America 1986, Moscow 1988, London 1991, Germany 1991 and Kosovo 1999. The sound quality is good enough and of particular interest will be the inclusion of Inwards from The Seer video which is not yet available anywhere else. The interruption for fighting at the end however has been edited out. As Bruce says in his sleeve notes, this is not a 'greatest hits' album and as a consequence, I much enjoyed hearing the likes of Republican Party Reptile and Leap Of Faith played live. Another cracking amazon price for this little gem. I highly recommend this...enjoy!

OK, they're not all 'rarities' as the title implies (Inwards and Steeltown are available on other live CDs), but for the rarities that are on here and the sheer quality of Adamson, Watson, Butler and Brzezicki live, this is an essential purchase for all BC fans and should be strongly considered by anyone with an interest in good rock music.

So great to hear songs that you can't find on the regular albums AND have the alternate takes to listen to also. Just simply great!!!
