I’m A Big Country

All my Big Country puns are too dirty even for me.

Big Country
In A Big Country (Pure Mix)
All Of Us
I’ve been looking for this single for years and I finally got it yesterday. Much rejoicing.

P.M. Dawn
Set Adrift On Memory Bliss (Extended Version)
A Watcher’s Point Of View (Don’t ‘Cha Think) (Youth Extended Mix)
I was really into “Set Adrift…” when it first came out. That was in 1991, so I was 12 at the time, meaning that I was one really weird white kid. Listening to it now I can’t figure out why I dug it so much at the time. Maybe it was all misplaced and I really just liked Spandeu Ballet’s “True” which is what this song is based off of. These are both off of a 12” single that had cover art so horrid that it gave me a headache.

David Bowie
Stay (Live)
Word On A Wing (Live)
First thing to do whenever you go to a used CD store; make your way to the “Bs” and scope for Rykodisc re-releases of David Bowie albums. They’re easy to spot, they have a greenish tinge to them. Ryko had the Bowie catalog for about five minutes in the 90s and when they re-released his albums they did it with style, adding rare bonus tracks to all of them. They aren’t worth a fortune now, but they are a little pricey on eBay and such, however most record stores don’t know that and they mark them as if they are the regular versions. These two tracks are from the the reissue of Station To Station. I have the Rykodisc version of Scary Monsters, but for some reason the version I have on my computer is in a goofy format. I shall fix that soon.
