2015 EU reissue on 180g LP=Contains the hits: "All the Things She Said," "Alive and Kicking," " Sanctify Yourself" Exactly 30 years after its first release, "Once Upon A Time (Remaster)" 2015 reopens the UK's most successful Simple Minds album.

In October 1985, the band released the original, with which they reached number one on the UK charts and the top ten of the US charts. No one less than the producer team Jimmy Iovine and Bob Clearmountain had produced the record back then. The cover art is by the Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn. The album release was soon followed by a 15-month world tour of the Simple Minds.

Riding the coattails of the John Hughes flick The Breakfast Club, Simple Minds finally broke into America with their theme song "Don't You Forget About Me," and their 1985 release Once Upon a Time captured the heart-wrenching excitement found in bands such as U2. They were now one of the biggest names in music, and Jim Kerr's thirsting vocals became the band's signature. Once Upon a Time, featuring producer Jimmy Iovine (U2, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Springsteen), showcased more of a guitar-driven sound. The band's heavy synth pop beats had relaxed a bit and Charlie Burchill's charming playing style was most noticeable. Also enlisting the choir-like beauty of Robin Clark, Simple Minds' popularity was expounded on songs such as "Alive & Kicking" and "Sanctify Yourself." This album was one of their best, most likely leading the pack in the band's album roster, because it exuded raw energy and solid composition not entirely captured on previous albums.
