Product Notes

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing with textured blue album jacket. Formed by ex-Skids guitarist Stuart Adamson in 1981 with old friend Bruce Watson and, from 1982, rhythm section Tony Butler and Mark Brzezicki, Big Country proved a fascinating proposition, adding punk, new wave and even new romantic elements to heavy, meaning-laden pop/rock with a passionate Celtic slant and fierce integrity. Using effects, Adamson and Watson's chiming guitars evoked traditional Scottish instruments. This was unique and proved highly influential. Within a year of their first release, many existing bands began to emulate the group's sound. Nobody achieved it quite like Big Country. Released in July 1983, The Crossing is, for many, the band's greatest album. At once of it's time yet completely out of step with what was then happening, it's traditional, well-made songs and sounds took it to No. 3 in the UK charts and into the US Top 20. Produced by Steve Lillywhite, it features four of the group's best- known songs: 'In A Big Country', 'Fields Of Fire (400 Miles)', 'Harvest Home' and 'Chance'.
