This is also a Gatefold, so it would be correctly "2xVinyl, LP, Album, Gat"

1979-83 was when Simple Minds were still in the old-fashioned punk era, long after that musically inept fad had passed. They realised they had to become more melodic and from Sparkle in the Rain, onwards, they managed this, reaching their musical peak with Once Upon a Time. For this live album they completely rearranged some of their earlier punk tracks to much greater effect and musicality.
They are continuing to do this to their other early work with their 5x5 Tour.
Becoming a pop/rock band made them world famous, popular and rich from far greater record sales.
Live in the City of Light is a great live album, with a hugely atmospheric sound and great vocals.

I had not heard to this album for almost 20 years. It's weathered the test of time a lot worse than even I could have imagined. I didn't like it much on release, but this is a snapshot of Simple Minds as they became enmeshed in an ever more precipitous slide in quality to the point of complete unlistenability. Bloated arrangements, flaccid performances and horrifying musical choices conspire to punish the listener. Their next album ["Street Fighting Years"] would be their absolute nadir, of course. It carries on the tenets of this album to their headache-inducing conclusion. The worst part is, I saw Simple Minds on this tour [I had waited six years for the chance to see them] and I left that arena a shattered fan. This album is a hard slap in the face by a band that had completely transformed themselves from a lean, thrilling artistic entity into a shambling prole, vomiting cliches into the uncomprehending ears of their newly acquired fan base. An affront, no matter how you look at it. Fortunately, they give performances today that wipe the floor with the caliber of the work on display here; even while their 81-84 salad days will never be touched again.
