Simple Minds have taken their time in coming up with their first acoustic album. But given that they made their biggest commercial impact with towering singles like Promised You A Miracle and Don t You (Forget About Me), that s not surprising. The band became the standard bearers for a new kind of rock music in the Eighties when they added big choruses and widescreen atmospherics to the art-rock invention of the post-punk era.

Super deluxe six disc edition boasts an abundance of material. Disc one features a 2016 remaster (by Andrew Walter at Abbey Road) approved by Charlie Burchill and the second disc gathers 12-inch remixes and instrumentals of the singles, a few of which enjoy their CD debut. Various edits and B-sides can be found on the third CD in the set while disc four features previously unreleased BBC John Peel and Kid Jensen radio sessions, recorded in February and August 1982. All ten tracks on disc five are previously unreleased; made up of alternative mixes and demos and the icing on the cake is the sixth and final disc which is a DVD, featuring Charlie Burchill and Ronald Prent's 5.1 surround sound mix, first released on the now long out-of-print DVD-Audio in 2005. This mix of the album is a unique 'full duration' mix which is different to the standard version. DVD also includes promo videos and a few Top of the Pops performances. Note, this is a DVD-V unlike the DVD-A/V disc from previous Simple Minds box sets.

Originally released in February 1984, Sparkle In The Rain (title taken from a line in Book Of Brilliant Things) was Simple Minds' sixth studio album and, following 1982's crossover album New Gold Dream, the one to cement their commercial success. This 2015 2CD Deluxe Edition of the title contains the original remastered album along with a bonus disc of rare B-sides, some making their CD debut for the first time. These include: a live version of New Gold Dream's 'Hunter And The Hunted,' which shows the band's evolving sound; acclaimed 12-inch remixes of 'Waterfront' (producer Steve Lillywhite looped the drums to create an extended intro, as well as stripped instrumentation to create a huge, expansive track), 'Speed Your Love To Me,' 'Up On The Catwalk' and 'A Brass Band In Africa,' and 'Bass Line' the original instrumental that became 'White Hot Day.' Add to this an expanded booklet and you have a must have piece for any Simple Minds fans music collection.

When Simple Minds released Black and White in 2005, it was obvious they'd been doing some creative soul searching in light of the success of bands clearly influenced by them, namely, the Killers and Manic Street Preachers. 2009's Graffiti Soul saw the return of drummer Mel Gaynor to the fold. He brought a familiar, tight, propulsive foundation to Charlie Burchill's guitar playing and Andy Gillespie's imaginative synths. Jim Kerr's alternately whispering and soaring vocals were still at the fore, but were showcased inside more economical songwriting, and Jez Coad's production celebrated the band's pop identity. Big Music finds Simple Minds coming full circle – going all the way back to 1979 for inspiration. They've rediscovered the urgent, keyboard-driven post-punk futurism of recordings such as Empires and Dance and Sons and Fascination.
