additional information
A top Simple Minds collectible, this Mexican pressing of the LP featured a unique sleeve. A cassette was also available (CS-483); presumably it featured the same artwork.

Obviously someone in Virgin's Mexican office fancied the artwork of Theme For Great Cities - The Definitive Collection rather than the standard Sons And Fascination cover. So when the Mexican office decided to belatedly issue the album in 1982, they just picked the US compilation's sleeve and coloured it differently.
