the new album by Great Big Sea
released in Canada on June 22, 1999,
released in the U.S. on March 7, 2000....
We'd call TURN a "much anticipated" release, but that would be an understatement. It's Great Big Sea's first new album in two years, and during that time their fan base has grown enormously. Consequence Free, a fun and catchy original song and the album's first single, has been released to "adult album alternative" radio stations in the U.S., so call to request it!. It should be familiar to Boston fans, along with Boston and St. John's (which we feel could be Great Big Sea's breakthrough hit in the U.S., and that's not a geographical bias, we swear!), Ferryland Sealer, Can't Stop Falling, Old Brown's Daughter, and I'm a Rover. Now that we've heard the entire disc, we can't get it out of our heads.
With TURN released in the U.S. on March 7, 2000, track order
on the U.S. release is a bit different from the Canadian release: Cant
Stop Falling was moved up from #9 to #2, and Demasduit Dream was moved
back from #4 to #9. The artwork is the same except for a Sire logo
in place of the WEA logo. But even if you already own a copy of the
Canadian release, you can still buy a copy of the U.S. release and help
it climb up the charts!
