    Balearic highlights from Scottish 1980s powerhouse band Simple Minds. Recorded early in their career, these four sublime tracks illustrate just how mind-blowingly good and experimental Simple Minds were before they hooked up with U2’s producer and headed down the stadium rock route. The first cut ‘This Fear of Gods’, plucked from the Leckie-produced 1980 LP ‘Empires and Dance’, is a hard-edged slice of electronica which sounds way ahead of its time rolling through an eerie soundscape of angry chants, hypnotic synths and thunderous pounding drums. Next up is the equally impressive ‘Theme For Great Cities’. Produced by Steve Hillage, this lush instrumental epic had major rotation and became a big anthem in Ibiza. Flip over for another Balearic classic - the extended 12” version of the superbly futuristic Moroder-esque  ‘I Travel’ and last but not least, the in-demand 12’ instrumental version of ‘This Earth That You Walk Upon’ - another Hillage-produced tripped-out masterpiece.
