all the things... a choice selection 1979-1986: information

  • All The Things... was a promotional only cassette release by Virgin Canada to promote the Canadian leg of the Once Upon A Time tour. It was intended as an introduction to Simple Minds and their music, its contents a sampling of the bandís work to date.

  • Its artwork and title was inspired by the All The Things She Said single which had been released a couple of months earlier.

  • It served as a handy introduction to Simple Minds' catalogue and included key tracks from all their previous albums. The cassette inlay featured full album track listings and catalogue numbers.

  • The track listing on the back of the cassette sleeve was incorrect: whilst it showed Donít You (Forget About Me) chronologically in its rightful place (between Sparkle In The Rain and Once Upon A Time tracks), the song actually closes the album.
