  • Description

    Compilation covering all 40 years (to date) of legendary band Simple Minds' recording career. It captures their early experimentation, crossover chart successes, right up to their new imperial phase represented by songs from 2015's 'Big Music' and 2018's 'Walk Between Worlds'. The songs were remastered at the world-famous Abbey Road studios, and the product features spectacular new artwork designed by long-time collaborator Stuart Crouch, featuring iconic symbols by Malcolm Garrett which represent the band's career.
