Big Dipper Supercluster - The Big Dipper Anthology


Formats Available

A three-CD set comprised of forty-nine remastered tracks from the legendary Boston band’s original tapes, plus the mysterious “Faith Healer” video, all for an incredibly low price. Chronicling BIG DIPPER’s years on the widely respected Homestead label, discs one and two include the 1987 EP, BooBoo, and the LPs, Heavens [1987] and Craps [1988]. Nine little or seldom-heard bonus tracks from that era fill out Disc 2. Disc 3 compiles fifteen previously unreleased tracks from the band’s 1991 and 1992 post-Epic recording sessions. Titled Very Loud Array, this collection is a fitting coda to Big Dipper’s cosmic journey. With extensive liner notes from the original band members, and TOM SCHARPLING host of The Best Show on WFMU. Look for the original lineup of Big Dipper to be playing a run of reunion shows in New York and Boston in late April 2008, and perhaps some Midwest shows later in the year. It’s kind of like the return of Halley’s Comet, only you didn’t have to wait for 76 years. (STREET DATE - 3/18/2008)
