Big Country - In A Big Country (UK 12 Inch / 1983)

01) In A Big Country (Pure Mix) 6:16
02) In A Big Country (LP Edit) 4:14
03) All Of Us 4:09


04) Heart And Soul 5:11

So, yes, this has been posted on many other blogs and honestly it's worth all the praise! I was lucky enough to see Big Country on their first US tour back in the Spring of 1983. It was at the Eagles Club (President's Room) in Milwaukee with the Elvis Brothers as the opener. Big Country played and welcomed (3) encores! For the last encore, Stuart Adamson stated that he was overwhelmed with the support and turnout. He simply explained in his deep Scottish accent, that they had no other tracks in their roster, so...'In A Big Country' was played again. The crowd was over the top and the song was performed in long version form  with extra kick! Simply awesome!

All the art is from my original UK 12'er. The tracks, including the bonus track, are from the hard-to-find CD box set 'The Mercury Years'
