BIG COUNTRY – STEELTOWN – 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Out September 29th

Universal Music Catalogue

Following on from the critical and commercial success of the 2012 Deluxe Edition of “The Crossing” and last year’s 4 Disc Super Deluxe Edition of “Big Country at The BBC”, we are proud to announce the 30th Anniversary release of a 2CD Deluxe Edition and 2LP set of the band’s Number 1 album, “Steeltown”.

Produced by Steve Lillywhite at Abba’s Polar Studios in Stockholm, the album was Number 1 in many international territories and spawned 3 hit singles in the form of “East of Eden”, “Where The Rose Is Sown” and “Just A Shadow”. Both formats now also boast the single, “Wonderland” which was released between The Crossing and Steeltown but now finds its natural home on this 30th anniversary edition.

Disc Two of the 2CD Deluxe Edition now features the single A-Sides and B-Sides plus 7 Previously Unreleased Rough Mixes including 2 Work in Progress mixes of Wonderland recorded at Castlesounds Studios just outside of Edinburgh.
The 24 page booklet comes complete with rare memorabilia and sleeve-notes by respected Scottish journalist and life-long fan, Tim Barr.

The band will be embarking on a World Tour later this year, including extensive dates in the US, and will be playing selected highlights from both Steeltown and The Crossing.
