I had a go recently at providing all the 12″ versions of Simple Minds singles in the period before they went all stadium rock on us. I was missing two of the bits of vinyl but regular reader and occasional contributor David Martin dropped them off via e-mail last week. Makes sense to post the missing links:-
mp3 : Simple Minds – Promised You A Miracle
mp3 : Simple Minds – Waterfront
Both were chart hits, reaching #13 in May 1982 and December 1983 respectively. Both are marginally longer than the album versions but not on the scale of some of the other 12″ releases from this period.
Big thanks to David. I know my wee brother in Florida will really appreciate hearing these again.
