I'm a great fan of the sound of the 80's but to be honest I've never been so much in Simple Minds but on the other hand I'm a fan of Leaether Strip so I'm sure this EP will help me to dive deeper in their music.
Favorite track: Waterfront (A tribute to Simple Minds).
I remember buying Simple Minds first album "Life in a day" when it was released back in 79 , and it had a big impact on me as did the next many of their earlier albums. Especially the keyboard parts and Jim Kerr's very poetic and, from what I feel, very improvised lyrics and melodies. They really had and still have their own sound and I just felt like paying tribute by covering 6 of my favorite songs of theirs.

I'm thankful for this DL record as well as all of the others in the catalog. This whole project is pretty magickal IMO and with Phil dropping his body it's also exquisitely sad and it probably signals the end of DL as it was. As It Is. Nothing could be better than listening to this and reading some old old books. Thank you cEvin and company for making music that's ended up being a soundtrack to the most important parts of this lowly creatures life. Buy it!!!!!! John Kaskie
