‘Raw Power, Can you Feel It’ is about the only way you can describe this release;
‘Big Country‘, ‘and.. In the Beginning‘.
Iggy and The Stooges', ‘Raw Power’ album was one of the few records that Bruce Watson owned, along with a clutch of ‘Skids’ singles, when Clive Parker arrived in Scotland to start work with him and Stuart Adamson. ’and… In The Beginning’ transcends the rows, tragedy, court actions, in-fighting, 'tribute bands', controversy, and dodgy releases - drilling down to the very essence of ’what it is’, the ’RAW POWER’ of this phenomenal British band. Just about everything that can be said, has been said, about Big Country, so we’ll leave that to others.
Four hugely talented young men embraced Stuart Adamson’s genius, moulding the band’s iconic sound and anthemic riffs…. from Parker’s vast Keith Moon influenced rattling drum-kit, Alan Wishart’s tunesmithying bass licks, to Peter Wishart’s much imitated Scottish keyboard trills, and unique melodies - its all here, the ‘whole deal’, the full creative power behind one of the all time greatest UK Rock bands..
When you listen to this record, you’ll cry, laugh, and dance - turn it up !! RAW POWER
