Linus Entertainment
Album Information
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of
Gowan’s Canadian classic Great Dirty World, Linus
Entertainment is re-issuing a deluxe version of the
multiple JUNO winning and Platinum selling album.
The newly re-mastered album includes three previously
unreleased piano vocal versions, and new packaging
from original designer/photographer Dimo Safari,
including never-before-seen photos from the era.
The initial manufacturing run will include a limited
edition personally autographed booklet by Gowan,
exclusive to physical retailers.

Having been classically trained, Gowan’s vocal and
playing abilities quickly made him a huge success in
Canada with three platinum and four gold records,
numerous JUNO Award nominations, a SOCAN Classics
Award for over 100,000 spins of the Great Dirty World
album’s hit single, Moonlight Desires and a SOCAN
National Achievement Award.

Joining Styx in 1999, Gowan has spent the last decade
touring the world, playing the Superbowl twice, the
Tokyo-dome and Wembley Arena. He visited the White
House, and has performed A Criminal Mind for
hundreds of thousands of adoring Styx fans at packed
stadiums, all of whom have now learned what we
Canadians have known since 1985.
