Simple Minds - Celebration (1982). Date: 27 Jun 2019 07:16:29. Simple Minds - Celebration (1982). Originally released in 1982 by Arista in the . and reissued on CD by the Dutch Disky imprint in 2001, Celebration serviceably culls some of the better moments from Simple Minds' first three albums: 1979's Life in a Day and Reel to Real Cacophony and 1980's Empires and Dance. Given the sadly neglected status of the band's early catalog – meaning anything that was released prior to 1982's breakthrough New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84) – through the early 2000s, it is doubly unfortunate that a compilation like this remained out of print for an extended period of time

This darkness, however, only serves to demonstrate the many facets of one of the finest, and enduring bands of the past two decades. Celebration belongs in every fan's Simple Minds collection
Simple Minds then drummer, Brian Mc Gee, seemingly was one of the first in the UK to have one. But it would be more than a year later before I first got my hands on my very own Sony Walkman - the portable cassette player that first brought us the option of listening to music while on the move - and was first released 40 years ago in July 1979. It was there that the lyrics for much of our Sons and Fascination album came into being. Additionally it was while sitting on a park bench in Villa Borghese in Rome, that the song lyrics for Street Fighting Years took shape. Best ever experience listening to music on my walkman? No doubt it was during the mixing of our Once Upon A Time album. It had been a long session through the night, but finally we had the finished mix of Alive And Kicking complete. Inside the studio was, it sounded fantastic.
