Simple Minds release X5, a box set of their first 5 albums. Actually a six-album set, it covers 1979 debut album Life In A Day, Real To Real Cacophony, Empires And Dance (from 1980), the Steve Hillage-produced double (kind of) Sons And Fascination/Sister Feelings Call, and the all-downhill-from-here New Gold Dream.
The band play Glasgow’s Barrowland this Saturday.
