Notes

Released in a multifold Digipak, forming a cross when unfolded.

Documenting the bands developing sound, ideas and ideals through music and design of their classic 12" single releases.

Theme 1 - I Travel released by Arista September 80; reissued by Virgin January 82 as VS57812
Theme 2 - The American released May 81 as VS41012
Theme 3 - Love Song released August 81 as VS43412
Theme 4 - Sweat in Bullet released November '81 as VS45112
Theme 5 - Promised You a Miracle released April '82 as VS48812

Theme 3 track 3-2 is meant to be the instrumental mix from the 12" but the album version was included by mistake. This will eventually be corrected in the 2008 box set Simple Minds - Themes - Volumes 1-5 : March 79 - September 92.
Theme 4 tracks 4-3 & 4-4 recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon on 25.9.81 by the Manor Mobile.
