To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of its release, comes this remastered edition of Simple Mind's classic album Once Upon A Time. Containing the full original remastered album, Once Upon a Time including the singles Sanctify Yourself, All The Things She Said and the timeless Alive and Kicking.
Originally released in October 1985, Once Upon A Time became Simple Minds' most successful album to date, making the top ten in the US. It spawned three US top-thirty singles and launched a fifteen month long world tour that kept Simple Minds' name in the music weeklies for most of 1986. And with Jimmy Iovine and Bob Clearmountain providing a production dream team, and Anton Corbijn contributing to its instantly recognizable artwork, then Once Upon A Time had all the attributes of a classic 1980s album.

You not only get the remastered studio album, but you get the bonus CD with B sides, rarities and mixes, including the soundtrack song "Don't You Forget About Me" and the extended version of that.
A DVD is included that has all the videos from the album. The only thing I would have liked was a Blu-ray version for the videos, but that is just me. DVD will still look good when played back on the 4K player and TV.
The entire set is housed in a nice Slipcover type box.
So, if you are a fan of SIMPLE MINDS, you should get this set and I think you will be pleased with it, overall.
I give it an A- strictly for the DVD of videos, by not putting it on a Blu-ray instead.

This deluxe box set collates together the original album,all the relative singles and 12 inch versions including Don't You Forget About Me,which was never part of the original release and a few,never before on cd tracks,one of which is the Kevorkian mix of Alive And Kicking and being a big Minds fan,I have surprisingly never heard it before.
Most of the other 12 inch versions and remixes are already available on the Themes box set that I purchased in 2008,but at over £100,this is the cheaper option.
The inclusion of the Live In The City Of Light concert is welcome along with the DVD of videos and high res version of the album.
The record company should be congratulated on these deluxe box sets,as I hate the clinical download culture we live in and having something physical in your possession to enjoy,is a real treat for fans who appreciate great releases like this one.
Buy it asap as it won't be available forever!
