Obviously, there’s loads of familiar hits here, such as In A Big Country, Look Away and Wonderland, but amongst the self-penned material is a smattering of covers, including Blue Oyster Cult‘s Don’t Fear The Reaper; My, My, Hey Hey and Rockin’ In The Free World (Neil Young) and Tracks Of My Tears (Smokey Robinson & The Miracles). The Live Bootleg Set 1993-1998. Formed out of the ashes of Scottish punk band Skids by their guitarist Stuart Adamson, Big Country became one of the biggest British alternative rock bands of the 1980s, with a huge reputation as a live band to rival the likes of U2 and Simple Minds. After their initial success with a string of albums on Mercury Records, Big Country continued throughout the 1990s with new albums on a variety of labels, playing as ever around the world to their devoted fanbase. Sadly, Stuart’s untimely death in 2001 closed a chapter on Big Country’s story forever.
