I can almost guarantee you’ve never heard of Big Big Train, but thanks to Brad Birzer, who joined me to talk about music in early 2014, you will now. Here’s English Electric Part 1. Give it a serious listen. I love everything about it.
Once you’ve recovered from the realization that these guys are unknown, while schlock fills the airwaves, go out and buy the two-CD set English Electric Full Power. It’s worth getting the CD version, because it comes with a beautiful booklet that explains each song.
For November 2014 only, any of my silver, gold, or platinum supporters who’d like a copy of English Electric Full Power just need to ask for it and it’s theirs. (If you become such a member this month, that includes you, too.)
