Product Description
Product Details

  • Over the course of two discs, THE BEST OF SIMPLE MINDS chronicles all the phases of the Scottish band's eclectic career. They began as a gritty young post-punk outfit in the late 1970s. But by the turn of the decade, they had incorporated a precocious mix of punk, dance beats, and synthesizers, for a sound that helped create the template for much of what followed in UK pop for the next several years. This golden age of the group is represented by percolating, synth-laced tunes such as "I Travel" and "Sweat in Bullet."
  • By the mid-'80s, Simple Minds had become worldwide stars by expanding their sound to stadium size, a la U2 or Peter Gabriel. Epitomized by "Alive and Kicking" and "Promised You a Miracle," this period is the one with which casual observers most frequently associate the band. The collection continues further still, following Simple Minds into more organic-sounding territory, during a phase where they'd earned their stripes as elder rock statesmen. From edgy punks to gilded popsters, Simple Minds are comprehensively captured on this collection.
