additional information
The newly reformed Simple Minds of 1997 (with Derek and Mel returning to the fold) featured a rejuvenated set-list which recovered some previously forgotten gems from the back catalogue. So I Travel and Thirty Frames A Second made welcome returns, rubbing shoulders with the staple Simple Minds fare, along with the yet-to-be-released Glitterball and War Babies.

The two new tracks were being premiered to gauge audience reaction after the top-brass at Chrysalis questioned the material. The audience give both songs a resolute thumbs-up.

More News From This World was the only bootleg to emerge from this short festival tour. Recorded at Loreley (which was also filmed and broadcast), the crowd-heavy audience recording is sometimes drowned by shouts and screams but the band eventually emerge through the noise (although the mix is a little unbalanced at times).

An important bootleg it documents one of the first public performances of War Babies (which is slightly different from the eventual album version), unique lyrics in I Travel and the Neapolis-style version of Alive And Kicking. Donít let the minimal Live In The City Of Light artwork put you off.

Recommended.
