- The first signs of new activity from Simple Minds was from the music press in February/March 1991 when the new single
Let There Be Love was announced. It was accompanied by full-sized press adverts, window stickers and shop mobiles which stressed
the point that Simple Minds was back for the new decade.
- Let There Be Love was premiered by national radio in February, confirmed that the post-MacNeil
Simple Minds had not lost any vital musical elements. The song was a slick continuation of the sounds from
Street Fighting Years, complete with celtic-sounding melodic pipes,
but with modern drums and rhythms, care of the musical box-of-tricks supplied by producer
Steve Lipson. (Trills and synth swoops came courtesy of ZTT's magic box, borrowed from
Slave To The Rhythm).
- Some copies of the 7" were sent out as promos. These can be identified by compliment stickers on the back of the
sleeve (as shown above by the green sticker in the top right corner).
