Digitally remastered and expanded four CD version of the Scottish band's 1996 album. Formed in Dunfermline, Scotland in 1981 by the band's guitarists and founder members Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson, Big Country quickly broke worldwide with their initial album The Crossing, selling over two million copies and receiving three Grammy nominations in the US. Success continued, and the band went on to put out another five highly regarded albums before the release of Why The Long Face in 1995. This release includes not only the full-length album Why The Long Face, but also their live 1996 album Eclectic, plus a huge array of bonus tracks and band demos, including alternative and acoustic versions of classic tracks such as 'In A Big Country' and 'You Dreamer', plus a whole load of rarities including Big Country's cover versions of Alice Cooper's 'Teenage Lament', Creedence Clearwater Revival's 'Down On The Corner' and Neil Young's 'Hey Hey My My'. All material contained within has been freshly remastered especially for this release. Comes packaged in a clam shell box set, with booklet containing full sleeve-notes documenting the band's activities throughout the release of the album. With original singer Stuart Adamson at the helm, Big Country scored 17 top 30 singles in the UK, and achieved five gold and platinum albums during the period 1983-99.
