Great show, which has never been officially released on DVD I think? There was a video from the Channel 5 series though.

If anybody has a DVD copy of this and is willing to trade please do get in touch.

I saw it on the Whistle Test back in the day, great gig. I'll keep a look out.
Shame they never followed up on the greatness of the first album.

I'm so glad to see that other people appreciate Big Country. That album was amazing.

I like The Crossing, Steeltown, and The Seer, and thought the Buffalo Skinners wasn't bad either, A very sad day when stuart died he was a great guitar player I met him once in Piccadilly, London a real gent, The Skids were a great band as well.

I don't know about the video I have seen it way back I will also keep an eye out for you and send it to you if I find it, you might be interested that the audio from that show is I believe still available for download at Wolfgangs Vault. http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/

I understand this will come out on DVD here in September. Probably earlier in the UK.

Good news.

This was re-released as a CD/DVD in a jewel case on Track Records (now owned by BC's management) a year or two back, still avaialble. Titled "The Homecoming".

RIP Stuart, ten years this December and I still miss the fuck out of him.
