"Peter, as some will know, was the producer of what many believe to be our finest album –
New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84). That is saying something
considering the list of album producers we have worked with, including
Steve Lillywhite and
Trevor Horn. I still find it hard to believe that Pete
was only 21 years old when he produced that record. The guy youngest in the room, the rest of us
were 22! In any case the Simple Minds story owes so much to
Peter Walsh in particular." - Jim.
Originally commissioned to remix Sweat In Bullet for a single,
Pete Walsh impressed the band with his production and so was asked to produce their next single,
Promised You A Miracle and then the album
New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84). His brief was to capture the band's
live sound - which he didn't quite achieve but he captured something very special instead.
He was back behind the production desk again when he mixed the band's live
Rotterdam Concert from their massive
Once Upon A Time tour.
He returned as producer for Neapolis and its two singles.
