26th July 1988
Simple Minds #14
Trevor Horn and Stephen Lipson
Sarm West Studios
This is the tenth tape logged in the Virgin Archive for Street Fighting Years.
Recorded at Sarm during July 1988, it features some of the songs which featured on the album, and some ideas
which never made it.
Most of the songs are instrumentals, but the arrangements suggest preparations before final recording. This
would also mark the last time Power In The Darkness and
People Stand Up Again were recorded - they were abandoned
shortly afterwards. Special mention must go to the rocking version of Sun City which
is an exceptionally good outtake.
The quality is extremely good.
The tape was too long to fit on one CD so the rest was transfered onto a second.
