Description & Features+

Box Set includes: "XX" (2CD), the DVD "Meet Great Big Sea", a Bonus CD: "Rogue Waves" and "CBC Key Note" Radio Broadcast (1993), a timeline calendar, Great Big Sea story and gallery book and a few surprises. Time, and their own stubbornness and persistence has proven them right. Complied by the band members themselves, "XX" is a special two-disc set which captures the many highs in a 20 year recording career which has produced ten full length CDs, and two DVDs. In order to express the band's two sides, one disc covers their biggest hits from their more pop-oriented repertoire, while the other contains some of their most loved traditional and folk songs. To balance out the discs the band recorded five new songs, almost a new album in themselves, which run the gamut of their varied stylistic approach. The special limited edition box set that accompanies this release is packed with bonus material that both the casual and truly committed fan will enjoy. Besides the two-disc greatest hits collection, it includes another disc that contains some of the band's lesser known excursions and experiments. Over a 20 year career the band has sometimes gone astray, and these embryonic ideas and mis-steps will be fascinating to those who have followed the band's varied career. Another audio disc features one of the band's first interviews, recorded in the fall of 1993 for CBC St. John's, which includes rare and unheard songs from the band's earliest days. The box contains a special book covering the many ups and downs of their career, along with lyric sheets, stickers, and a calendar covering a year in the band's life. True fans are eagerly awaiting the set's DVD, which contains a movie edited together by Sean. Containing a wealth of early interviews, backstage foolishness and general craziness, it captures the madness of the band’s first few years, but without the bruises, bad food and hangovers of the real thing.
