A Perfect Concert DVD
John Erle Mundle | Vancouver, British Columbia Canada | 06/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Big Country were one of the most under-appreciated bands of the rock era, and if you want proof of this, just pick up this excellent live DVD and see them at the top of their game. Recorded in Glasgow, Scotland's Barrowlands Ballroom in front of a rabid hometown crowd, this concert shows a band that had been around long enough to give a very polished, professional rock & roll show, while still retaining the energy and passion that made their early concerts so memorable. The first five songs are acoustic performances, giving an earthy, authentic folk-rock feel to classics like "Chance", "Harvest Home", "13 Valleys", and "The Storm". The electric portion of the set kicks off in fine fashion with "Look Away", which has never sounded better, and includes rousing versions of "Wonderland", "Steeltown", and several songs from the Buffalo Skinners LP which sound far better live than they ever did in the studio. If you think "In A Big Country" was the only good song this band ever recorded, this DVD will be a real eye-opener."
An awesome performance!

""Without The Aid Of A Safety Net" is an awesome dvd, and a real treasure find for someone who was never lucky enough to see Big Country play live. Stuart, Tony, Bruce, and Mark deliver the goods in this performance, and I'm sure that every fan of Big Country would want to have this DVD in their collection. The show starts with some acoustic performances of several songs, before kicking off the electric part of the show. I cannot recommend this highly enough."
Best Big Country DVD YET!!!!!

"This is a MUST BUY for any Big Country fan. This is a great concert that I wish I could have been shows the band at its
best as far as I am concerned. My only regret is that Stuart Adamson is no longer with us, he was a GREAT TALENT and is sorely missed.
