Simple Minds will release a box set celebrating their 1989 album Street Fighting Years.
The new edition was remastered at Abbey Road studios by Andrew Walters and will be presented as a 4CD set, a 2CD deluxe package and on 2LP – and it’ll be out on March 6 through UMC.
The follow-up to 1985’s Once Upon A Time featured the core trio of vocalist Jim Kerr, guitarist Charlie Burchill and keyboardist Mick MacNeil, with a raft of other musicians brought in during studio sessions, including Stewart Copeland, Leroy Williams, Mel Gaynor, Lisa Germano and Lou Reed, who provided backing vocals on This Is Your Land.
The 4CD set will include all 11 album tracks, a disc of edits, b-sides and remixes, and a double CD featuring a previously unreleased live show recorded in Verona in 1989.
The 2-disc versions will feature the original album, plus the disc of edits, b-sides and remixes.
Along with the music, the Street Fighting Years box set will also come with a booklet designed by long time Simple Minds contributor Stuart Crouch, which contains sleeve notes penned by Daryl Easlea who interviewed the band and producer Trevor Horn for the set.
