Big Blue Ball News

A message from Real World Records :

Big Blue Ball is launched on Real World Records - an album of collaborations, a truly international, multi-artist project that grew from a series of extraordinary Recording Weeks in Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England back in the early 1990's.

Karl Wallinger
