Notes

Packaged in a 6 panel cardboard digisleeve with glued- 40 page booklet.

"Originally released as separate albums in 2012 and 2013, BBT's highly acclaimed English Electric CDs were subsequently brought together on the limited edition (now out of print) release English Electric Full Power, which also included four additional songs and a revised track listing from the separate album versions.
This mid-priced 2016 edition of English Electric retains the extended track listing of the Full Power release and has been remastered by Rob Aubrey to ensure the songs benefit from even greater dynamic range."

In booklet:
Recorded by Big Big Train at English Electric Studios.
