More information: Featuring an elite 17 piece string section recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Ingenious Devices contains new, remixed versions of a trilogy of revered Big Big Train epic tracks, East Coast Racer, Brooklands and Voyager.
Lending the project a powerful sense of conceptual continuity, all the pieces revolve around how mankind has used its ingenuity to extend its reach by the development and deployment of technology.
Apart from the late David Longdon’s lead vocals - compiled from the original sessions - East Coast Racer is a completely new studio version recorded by the 2019 line-up of the band (and including a stunning climactic guitar solo by Dave Gregory). Brooklands features newly recorded drums, bass and bass pedals, while Voyager includes additional guitar and violin.
The album also includes a 2022 live version of Atlantic Cable (introducing Alberto Bravin on vocals) and a linking orchestral piece.
Limited sky blue double vinyl edition with insert.
