Big Country - In A Big Country



The one that BC got branded a one hit wonder for. In the USA of course. Their second album Steeltown entered the charts at #1 in the UK, and at least up until The Seer they could draw 15,000 people in Toronto! Big Country deserved the attention though, and IABC is another classic that will live forever. No one else sounded like this. Expansive, anthemic, the bagpipe guitars, the thunderous drums, the hooks, the Cha's! Big Country reeled me in with this and never let me go. Here you get the 12 inch Pure Mix, one of my fave b-sides, All Of Us, and Heart And Soul.

Love these Big Country posts. So much early music I've never heard. Could you re-up this one? It seems to have gone dead.

Hi, thanks for the Big Country posts! You have made my weekend. Like "monkeytree5", I'd love it if you could re-post the "In a Big Country" single tracks.

Your blog is terrific! This Big Country post is such a great gift to all of us. Please could you reup the download for "In A Big Country/AllofUs/Heart & Soul"?

Thanks for these treasured songs from Stuart and the guys.
