CD Reviews

Possibly the most commercially successful period for BC.
Steve Rist | Edwardsville, Illinois United States | 04/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The singles from what is probably Big Country's most commercially successful period can be found in this boxset. For those collecting BC on CD, this set features The Teacher (Mystery Mix), Hold The Heart (Instrumental Version) and The Big Country Interview, to my knowledge, not available on other CD releases. Sound quality is great. The cardboard sleeves, featuring original artwork reproduction of each single, are actually both sturdy & flexible enough to house each single and remove it carefully without scratching the discs. Combined with the other three boxsets in the BC series, the listener is treated to a great overview of both hits and the majority of highly underrated B-sides. Worth the investment!"

"This version of the box set is great. My favorite selection is "Restless Natives." Also the instrumental version of "Hold The Heart" is a fave. Be sure to get all four of the box sets. There are gems in each set that any Big Country fan will love."
