Once Upon a Time is the seventh studio album by Scottish pop rock band Simple Minds, released in October 1985 by record label Virgin A&M in the US. The album paired the group with music producer Jimmy Iovine. He had worked with artists featuring an aggressive guitar-based sound, including singer-songwriters Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Nicks, and he brought that approach to the band. Iovine particularly pushed frontman Jim Kerr, aiming for more energetic vocals. Once Upon A Time - Simple Minds.

Once Upon a Time is the seventh studio album by Simple Minds, released in 1985. Although already successful in their native UK and Europe, the band had also now become popular in the US, mainly due to the success of Dont You Forget About Me which appeared on The Breakfast Club soundtrack and had become a No. 1 hit there. However, the band left the track off the album Once Upon a Time. Four singles were taken from the album Alive and Kicking UK No. 7, US 3, All the Things She Said UK No. 9, US 28, Sanctify Yourself UK No. 10, US 14, and Ghost Dancing UK 13. Once Upon a Time was available with two covers upon its original LP release. The alternate cover uses the back image for the front and vice versa. It also moves the Simple Minds logo to the right of the cover. The two cover images fit together when placed side by side or above each other, and the release of the album in British record shops saw the two covers placed in a grid, alternating like the two colours on a chessboard. ONCE UPON A TIME is a wonderful album by Simple Minds, an 80s Scottish band who, along with The Police, U2, REM, INXS, The Call, The Clash, The Cars, Midnight Oil, a few other 80s new-wavers, a number of 80s hard rock bands, and all of the great rockers of the 60s and 70s, may now. be considered classic rock. Its good to have all the associated tracks and the inclusion of Live in the City of Light is nice too, so it gets five stars. Once Upon A Time Cass, Album, Whi. TCV 2364. 이 버전 판매. SP 5092.
