A very favourable review of the Rejuvenation box set inside the latest edition of Mojo magazine.
Oh, and post New Gold Dream…Sparkle In The Rain (just as the first example) only went straight in at number one in the UK chart and spawned three hit singles…but “they seldom came anywhere near that masterpiece”. Okaaaaay…
It’s the only bit of the review that is questionable to me.
A bunch of bonus tracks and B Sides come with it including: from the Cry sessions, Lead The Blind, For What It’s Worth, The Garden, New Sunrise and Where Is The Max? (Never heard of this song before): From Black And White 050505, Bird On A Wire, Too Much Television and Mighty Joe Moon: With Graffiti Soul, the Searching For The Lost Boys bonus disc with added track, a cover of T-Rex’s Children Of The Revolution: on Big Music, a bonus of the collaboration with The Stranglers of (Get A) Grip (On Yourself) plus the Johnson Somerset Big Music 4 Track remix CD. Plus lots of visual content on the DVD, official videos, etc, etc.
Check the link for full details (you can also see full details through Simple Minds’ official social media channels).
The bonus material makes this a tempting investment. The cynic in me wonders why it was not released simultaneously with the vinyl box set. The vinyl package looked lovely, but I couldn’t afford to invest, as of yet.
It hits the shops March 29th (just in time for Brexit. Yay!), but is available to pre-order now. (Click the image to see more)
