Followers (and some not so die-hard) will recall the first album "The Crossing". There have been many ups and downs sice then and this album is a collection of songs that didn't make it, were changed and cut to make other more familiar songs or have just been dug up...And thank you bassit Tony Butler and guitarist Bruce Watson. The fantastic fingerwork that started over 20 years ago is still present in great songs such as "Christmas Island" and "Hardly a Mountain". That folk/bagpipe/guitar raw rock is everpresent, if not just a little mellowed. Songs such as "I feel fine" (became "Normal" from Restless Natives vol1) and "Celtic Dream" (which evolved into "Into The Fire" from No Place Like Home) gives an insight into the groups working progress and just how a bum note is never just dead, it can always be adapted. This proberbly wont be about for long, its not issued to sell thousands, just to entertain the lucky few...(and if you dont chuckle to "Eggplant" there is something wrong with you).

The second in the rarities series contains various b-sides, lost tracks and demo versions. Some of these are amongst the best Big Country tracks ever released. Eastworld and Never Take Your Place (originally b-sides around the time of The Buffalo Skinners) have always been great tracks.
Other stuff on here I had never heard before. The Long Road and You Want Me To Go are classic Big Country and as good as anything on the proper albums.

After hearing a number of albums, great singles, we now get the lastest offering from big country. As the album starts, we have a noticeable change of music, not like their recent stuff. I have like Big Country for some time, but this album seems to weak. There are some great tracks, etc track 5, 6 and 9 are very enjoyable, the rest just needs time. But in the end, the album will sound tops. I only gave this album 3 stars because it doesn't hold a candle to it's recent albums (Steeltown) still worth a listen, you might enjoy it.
