After leaving the Virgin Records in the mid-nineties, following a one-off album with Chrysalis, Simple Minds took stock and decided to make their own albums. An album of cover versions of songs dear to front man Jim Kerr and guitarist Charlie Burchill, Neon Lights, was released in 2001, followed by Cry in 2002, an album of new compositions recorded in Glasgow and Sicily.

The recordings for Black and White 050505 were completed on the 5th May 2005, hence the title. Graffiti Soul continued the band’s return to the top, charting at # 10 in May 2009.

Following the successful X5 box set and 5X5 tour in 2012 – for which the Simple Minds’ legacy was rightly reappraised, the band entered the studio to work on what would become Big Music. Released in October 2014, charting at #12, the album received rave reviews, being awarded four-stars in MOJO, Q Magazine and The Times.

This 7 CD + DVD 12 x 12 book set features the five albums plus twenty-five bonus tracks – non-album B-sides and originally limited bonus CD tracks, including the rare album of covers Searching For The Lost Boys (now including a cover of T. Rex’s Children Of The Revolution), and the Big Music Bonus CD (now including the Simple Minds/Stranglers collaboration). The remixes include the four acclaimed Johnson Somerset remixes of the singles from Big Music.

The DVD features the 10 rare single promo videos from these albums, along with the even rarer EPKs made for the albums’ promotion.

Housed in a handsome 12 x 12 book, the booklet features photos and newly written extensive and revealing album-by-album notes by Jim Kerr himself.
