comments
Given the nostalgic overtones and setting of the song, and that it was promoting a definitive retrospective, then the direction of the Broken Glass Park video was obvious: a compilation video of locations in Glasgow interspersed with early recorded performances.

Notable Simple Minds landmarks were added into the mix of general Glasgow skylines. The legendary Barrowland Ballroom appeared along with a still of Holyrood Catholic School. And then there were the videos, merged into the mix of broken windows and shattered buildings: Chelsea Girl, Love Song, Sweat In Bullet, Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize. Less obvious choices also turned up as there were also brief glimpses of the bandís two appearances on The Old Grey Whistle Test.

Many thanks to Rolf for the scan.
