Tonight there appeared a YouTube channel called “Simple Minds Rare and Demo’s”[sic]
It seemingly had several songs on it. I got to hear one. An outtake demo from the Street Fighting Years album called People Stand Up Again.
I would have dearly loved to have seen and/or heard what else was on offer…but alas, I was not quick enough! I only just got to hear the one track I did before the whole channel was removed.
My theory is (and I could be wrong) that it was an official thing accidentally made public. And instead of turning the songs private, they just pulled the whole channel.
But equally, it could have been an unofficial thing…but, if so, it was VERY quick to have been pulled.
Jim mentioned things in the “vaults” in a post last week. Odd he should discuss such a thing…then this YT channel shows up, only to be removed a few hours later.
