Review

Recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on January 23, 1989, this hour-long concert recording captured Big Country a little past its peak, during its tour promoting Peace In Our Time, which had broken a string of excellent, uncompromising studio albums with what was, in essence, a commercially intended sell-out (and a failed one at that). Nevertheless, Big Country in person remained a stirring act, its twin guitars leading the way through some of the group's better known numbers. Stuart Adamson's Scottish burr of a speaking voice was a surprise given the more continental tone of his singing voice, but he was a funny, self-deprecating frontman, which was notable in a group that seemed to take itself so seriously. Big Country would have been well served by a live release during its heyday, and 1989 would not have been a bad time for it. Released more than six years after it was recorded, this album is an archival souvenir for the cult. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
