Mills Record Company

'Street Fighting Years', originally released in May 1989 and produced by Trevor Horn (and Stephen Lipson), was Simple Minds' eighth studio album. Recorded in Scotland between 1988 and 1989, during a period of personnel changes within the band, the album was a departure from the band's previous sound. While still maintaining the Arena Rock sound the band were known for, they moved away from the Soul influences on their previous records and embraced a new Celtic/Folk sound. The lyrics built on the more political themes which the band had introduced with 'Ghost Dancing', covering topics such as the poll tax, the Irish 'Troubles', and political activists including Nelson Mandela and Steven Biko. This box set edition features the original studio album on Disc 1, a selection of B-Sides and remixes on Disc 2, and the band's 1989 live concert in Verona, Italy, on Discs 3 and 4.
