Super deluxe six disc (five CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) set. Originally released in October 1985, and coming hot on the heels of the global smash single ‘(Don’t You) Forget About Me’, Once Upon A Time was to prove the album that propelled Simple Minds to stratospheric heights of artistic and commercial success. Containing the classic hit singles ‘Alive And Kicking’, ‘All The Things She Said’, ‘Sanctify Yourself’, and ‘Ghostdancing’ the original era-defining Number 1 album now comes as part of this incredible box set. Bonus discs include a wealth of supplementary tracks, including the original and extended versions of ‘(Don’t You) Forget About Me’, single edits, 12″ mixes, B-sides, unreleased tracks and the two-disc Live In The City Of Light concert. The DVD includes an audio version of the album with a high-res 96/24, 5.1 mix plus all the promo videos, as well a 36-page booklet with rare photos, new interviews with Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill and a track-by-track guide. It really is the ultimate word on a very fine album.
