Big Country - We're Not In Kansas - The Live Bootleg Box Set (Cherry Red Records)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
If you're ever fortunate to see Big Country live you will know what a tour de force they were. Around that time they were in the same league as U2 and Simple Minds

This 5 box CD edition pays tribute to the band drawing from five gigs recorded in the early 90's. Sadly lead singer Stuart Adamson took his own life in 2001 closing a chapter on the Big Country story forever.

Bistrot Pierre, Ilkley - New Autumn Menu
Naturally there are the big hits such as In A Big Country, Look Away, Chance, Wonderland and Peace In Our Time.

The band played gigs in Leeds and Bradford many times and even got to the point where they sold out bigger venues such as the Birmingham NEC.

Listening to any of these live CD's captures the energy and spirit you got when attending a Big Country gig.

I give it 4 out of 5
