Always really enjoyed Big Country and their 'Big Music' sound. Had their albums on LPs and had a yearning to listen to them again recently so popped on to Amazon to buy the albums again on CD. However, surprised to find that they are quite expensive for some reason. So being stingy I plumped for this ultimate collection instead. The collection isn't so bad at all actually, but the problem is I'm so very familiar with the each of the albums and their track sequence listening to this compilation makes me regret not forking out and simply replacing the albums. There is a bigger problem for me however.

Disc fault on CD 2.

The first order from Amazon arrived and I do as I normally do, play it once and rip it to FLAC and add it to my music collection on my NAS before storing the original CD. I heard a couple of audible pops on track 11 on disc 2 but as the music is so 'full' it is hard to hear anything that shouldn't be there beyond that. Unfortunately you'll encounter problems ripping the second CD as there are sector errors on the disc. I sent the first copy back for replacement and annoyingly the replacement also has these same defects on disc 2 in exactly the same places. Trouble starts at track 11 through to the last. The worst track is Porroh Man!

Seems a bit pointless sending this replacement back as well, as no doubt I'll get yet another copy with these disc errors. Clearly a manufacturing issue.

Anyhow, if you're intending on ripping these for personal use to MP3 or FLAC then you've been warned.

I enjoyed listening to old favourites and to new songs as well. The CD is in my car so I can listen in peace.
