- The final release of the 1990s wasnít an epoch defining retrospective or shiny new album but a dull
multiple-album box set, obviously targeted at the Christmas stocking, and designed to reduce shop-held stock.
- "Simple Minds" bundled together the standard CD editions of
New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84),
Once Upon A Time and
Street Fighting Years in a brown picture box. (Although "box" is over descriptive -
it's actually a slip-sleeve).
- The set originated from France, which was no surprise, as all of these types of bundled sets originated
from that country.
- The incongruous cover shot was taken from the Good News From The Next World photo sessions,
the last Simple Minds image Virgin had rights to, but didnít represent the era of the box-set itself.
- According to The Raft discography, the catalogue number was
Virgin MILBOX26. This isn't printed on the sleeve.
