Product Description:

In the heady days of 1978, few people ever dreamt that the guitarist of a noisy Dunfermlin punk band called The Skids would end up leading one of the biggest stadium rock successes of the 80s who, at their peak, would be bracketed with U2 and Simple Minds in the widescreen guitar-rock stakes. This collection of BBC recordings charts the spectacular rise of Big Country. From late night session recordings to Top of the Pops appearances and headline concerts, it's an alternate 'best of' as broadcast by the BBC. Big Country at the BBC - 3CD & 1 DVD box set - with a 32-Page hardcover book featuring insightful sleeve notes by respected Scottish journalist and author Tim Barr plus rare photographs by Paul Cox, exclusive poster and 4 exclusive postcards housed in a Big Country wallet. Disc One contains the 4 songs from the David Jansen session from 1982, the 4 songs from the John Peel session from 1983 plus 6 Previously Unreleased songs recorded live at the Hammersmith Palais on 1983 Disc Two contains 14 Previously Unreleased live songs including 4 songs recorded live at the Reading Festival from 1983, 4 songs recorded live at Wembley Stadium supporting Elton John in 184 and 6 songs recorded live at the Soviet Embassy in 1988 Disc Three contains 14 songs from their legendary 1989 concert at the Hammersmith Odeon 6 of which are Previously Unreleased. Disc Four is a DVD9 containing all of the band's Top of the Pops performances, plus performances from The Old Grey Whistle Test, The Oxford Road Show and an interview with Stuart Adamson conducted by Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson's former colleague from The Skids. There are also concerts from Pop Carnival, Sefton Park in 1983, The Hogmany concert from the Edinburgh Playhouse in 1984 and a concert from the Reading Hexagon in 1986 Plus 2 Bonus Tracks in the form of the band's second appearance on Top of The Pops performing Fields of Fire and In A Big Country.
