celebrate: information

  • After leaving Arista in January 1981, the band also left the rights to their first three albums to offset against their accumulated debts.

  • This single was issued by the record company to cash in on new found interest in Simple Minds, who had just completed a mini-tour of Canada and the USA, and were meant to be starting a UK tour (which got cancelled).

  • One of their rarest singles, most discographies got the track listing wrong. On paper, it looked like a small compilation of LP tracks; however, this was the only source of the extended version of the title track. Additionally, the B-side tracks were mixed together, with Changeling merged into I Travel.
