For all the North American BBT fans (and fans of physical media), it seems we will not be getting a properly working Blu-ray of BBT’s Stone and Steel. The band decided not to make a second pressing, and they say that the first pressing may work on newer Blu-ray machines. They have also released it digitally via Vimeo. I would much rather prefer they make it available on iTunes, and I’m not in the mood to pay lots of money for a Blu-ray that may or may not work. Coupled with the rather annoying multiple tracklist versions of their latest album, Folklore, I’m a little peeved.
I also received this in my email inbox yesterday:
The digital version of the complete “Stone & Steel” film is now available to purchase for streaming and download on Vimeo:
If you need to satisfy the palate as well as the ear and eye, Folklore Ale and Wassail Cider are available from The Merch Desk, along with other BBT merchandise:
Finally, a reminder that the band has been nominated in three categories for this year’s Progressive Music Awards: Band/Artist Of The Year, Album Of The Year, and Live Event. If you’d like to show your support for Big Big Train or any of the other nominees, you can vote at:
