Patti Smith and her then-producer Todd Rundgren both played a part in influencing
the Simple Minds sound, hence
Dancing Barefoot has been incorporated into the band's live set on
many occasions*, always receiving a fantastic audience reaction.
The EP will also include versions of three other classic tracks:
Gloria by Van Morrison,
Being Boiled by The Human League and
Love Will Tear Us Apart by
Joy Division all get the
Simple Minds treatment.
