35TH ANNIVERSARY OF STEELTOWN 1984 – 2019

Steeltown is the second studio album by Legendary Scottish band Big Country.

The album was recorded at ABBA’s Polar Studios in Stockholm with Steve Lillywhite producing. It was released on 19 October 1984, in the UK and 29 October 1984, in the United States.
Steeltown is the band’s only UK number 1 album, topping the chart in October 1984. The title track Steeltown was written about the town of Corby, telling how many Scots went to work at the Stewarts & Lloyds steelworks when it opened in 1935, at the height of the Great Depression, but later found themselves unemployed when the steelworks declined in the early 1980s.

“Clanging and crackling with energy, this second album from Big Country rings natural evolutionary changes on the band’s stirring twin-guitar sound even as it frames still better news: bandleader Stuart Adamson has rapidly matured into a songwriter capable of bringing meticulous craft to his obvious passion!

Fred Schruers of Rolling Stone
Many fans today consider Steeltown to be the band’s finest work.

Steeped in a stunning catalogue of proud and stirring hit songs such as ‘Fields of Fire’, ‘Chance’, ‘In A Big Country’ (which sold 2 million), ‘East Of Eden’ and their biggest UK hit ‘Look Away’, along with massive albums such ‘The Seer’, ‘Steeltown’, ‘Peace In Our Time’ and the triple Grammy -nominated, ‘The Crossing’, BIG COUNTRY continue to look beyond the next horizon in 2019.
