Burning Shed: Simples Minds NEW GOLD DREAM Boxset

Arghh. . . my soul cries to me, “buy this!”  My favorite album by Simple Minds and an anthem and personal soundtrack for my own personal 1980s.

The following is taken straight from Burning Shed.

NGD boxset
One of the greatest albums ever made, finally getting the treatment it deserves.

A stunning 2016 deluxe box set edition of Simple Minds’ classic 1982 Art Pop opus.

Containing six discs, including an Abbey Road remaster of the original album, a swathe of remixes, 12″ versions, radio edits, and a disc of previously unreleased John Peel and Kid Jensen radio sessions, recorded in 1982.

The 5 CDs are complemented by a DVD, featuring the 2005 5.1 mix of the album by Charlie Burchill and Ronald Prent, as well as promo videos and, being made available commercially for the first time, Top Of The Pops performances of Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize.

The set includes a 36 page booklet with extensive sleeve notes by journalist and broadcaster Billy Sloan plus interviews with Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill, as well as photos of the band during the period.

Pre-order for 29th July release.
