Big Country’s Moscow Show to Be Reissued

leave a comment »

Not exactly sure of the exact origins of this set, but exciting news either way: Slicing Up Eyeballs reports a reissue of Big Country’s famed 1988 Moscow show on CD and DVD.

The Scottish rockers were one of the first acts from the West to play the U.S.S.R., and this set – first released on the band’s Track Record label in 2009 and getting a wider release now – captures that show at the Palace of Sports in September of 1988, as the band promoted their newest LP, Peace in Our Time (1988). The band haven’t gotten much widespread catalogue attention in the CD era (though the Track Record label has put out plenty of compilations of demos, outtakes and remixes), but perhaps this wider release will be the start of something bigger for them.

Order the set from Amazon here and hit the jump for the track list.
