about

This compilation album was released on compact disc on the Belle Antique label in Japan on March 25th 2020.

The album traces the story of Big Big Train from some of its earliest pieces of music through to the 2020 line-up.

Big Big Train worked very closely with Belle Antique to make this an interesting and beautifully presented album. New cover artwork was commissioned from BBT artist Sarah Louise Ewing and the band recorded a brand new instrumental track written by Nick D’Virgilio which is exclusive to this release.

Alongside the new track, the album includes an updated version of the full 30 minute song cycle called London Song which benefits from additional instrumentation which was not included on the previously released download and streaming versions.

Summer’s Lease also sees the exclusive release of a brand new studio recording of Wind Distorted Pioneers. A live version of this track was performed by the band for the 2015 Stone and Steel Blu-Ray video release. However, this re-arranged version has never before been released as a studio recording.

Finally, one of the band’s earliest pieces, Expecting Snow has been updated for this album, with new keyboards replacing the keyboard parts on the original album sessions.
