Simple Minds’ New Gold Dreams (81-82-83-84) Box Soon

Simple Minds New Gold DreamsSimple Minds is a band that has never strayed far from the consciousness of their fans. They still release fantastic albums. I’ve never failed to be impressed by their songwriting capabilities, their musical arrangements, song selections, etc. I was an early fan following them up into their moments of fame, and then afterwards where, album after album, they just keep getting better and better. But enough about that. There’s a reissue coming. And it’s one of the great classics.

On July 29 (UK), August 5 (US), New Gold Dreams (81.82.83.84) will be reissued with every stop pulled out for it. New Gold Dreams (81-82-83-84) will come to us in several ways that include a 2CD Deluxe Edition, a vinyl LP set, a BD-Audio version, and a heavily crammed Deluxe Edition.

New Gold Dreams will feature -obviously- new remastering. The Super Deluxe Edition will offer CDs of Extended Versions, Edits and B-Sides, Alternate Mixes, and Radio Sessions. With the original album that counts for five CDs filled with Simple Minds and New Gold Dreams riches. Another disc is a DVD that will present 5.1 Surround mixes of the original album (pulled from the 2005 DVD-Audio). The DVD will also provide two promo videos (“Promised You A Miracle”, “Glittering Prize”), and two previously unreleased Tops of the Pops performances (“Promised You A Miracle”, “Glittering Prize”). All of this is housed in a nice Box along with a 36-page booklet.
