For more info - www.eagle-rock.com When Big Country took to the stage at the Grugahalle in Essen in March 1986 they were at the peak of their commercial success on the back of their No.1 UK album Steeltown and the release of their follow up The Seer (Which would go to No.2) a few months in the future. Founded by the late Stuart Adamson on his departure from The Skids, Big Country would go on to have a lengthy career extending well into the nineties but they can have delivered few finer performances than this legendary Rockpalast appearance. Tracklisting: 1) Wonderland 2) Fields Of Fire 3) Where The Rose Is Sown 4) Rain Dance 5) Remembrance Day 6) Just A Shadow 7) Steeltown 8) Look Away 9) Chance 10) The Teacher 11) In A Big Country 12) Inwards 13) Harvest Home 14) The Storm 15) Lost Patrol 16) Tracks Of My Tears
lyrics I've never seen you look like this without a reason, Another promise fallen through, another season passes by you. I never took the smile away from anybody's face, And that's a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child. CHORUS: And in a big country, dreams stay with you, Like a lover's voice, fires the mountainside.. Stay alive.. (I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered) I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert, But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime.. CHORUS [x2] So take that look out of here, it doesn't fit you. Because it's happened doesn't mean you've been discarded. Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming. Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted. I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered. I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert, But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime.. CHORUS [x3]

Gregory Peck vs. Charlton Heston Epic fight from Wyler's epic-sized saga set in the west, where McKay (Peck) finally physically confronts the bullying ranch foreman, Leech (Heston).
One of my favorite themes from one of my very favorite Westerns. 'The Big Country' is a somewhat overlooked Western epic from 1958, directed by the great William Wyler and Starring Gregory Peck, Jean Simmons, Carroll Baker, Charlton Heston and Burl Ives, who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his powerful role as Mr. Hennessee, the leader of a poor family clan. It is the Hennessee clan which has had a blood feud with wealthy ex-Civil War Major Henry Terril; Terril's daughter Pat (Carroll Baker) is coming home from the East, bringing with her a dashing new fiance (Gregory Peck) to meet her doting father. It is as her fiance, Jim McKay, automatically is repulsed by the fickle violence of the dog-eat-dog clans that the movies anti-violence themes emerge. It is these themes that make the movie stand out so much from others. Jean Simmons co-stars as the local school teacher and owner of 'The Big Muddy', the home of the whole town's water supply. It is her stubborn nature which keeps the Muddy from falling into the hands of either clan, and from letting the bloodshed reach a tragic head. 'The Big Country' has so much to offer, with the subtleties that underlie the plot, the enjoyably well-done acting (particularily with Jean Simmons, who is horribly underrated), beautiful cinematography, breathtaking directing and a stunning theme, as you are to now hear. 'The Big Country' rises above cliches, is exquisitely done and has a fresh spin on moral and ethical themes that has ...
