180g Vinyl Reissue!

Sparkle in the Rain is the sixth studio album by Simple Minds, released on February 6, 1984. A breakthrough commercial success for the band, the record peaked at number one in the UK Albums Chart on February 18, 1984, and reached the top 20 in numerous other countries around the world. Receiving mostly positive reviews in the United Kingdom and the United States, Sparkle in the Rain was ultimately certified double platinum in the UK by the British Phonographic Industry, and significantly increased media interest in the band.

This LP reissue of the title contains the original album newly remastered on 180 gram vinyl.

Simple Minds are a Scottish rock band formed in 1977. They achieved commercial success in the early 1980s and, despite various personnel changes, continue to record and tour. The band scored a string of hit singles, and are best known internationally for their 1985 hit "Don't You (Forget About Me)" (UK #7, US #1, CAN #1), from the soundtrack of the John Hughes film The Breakfast Club. Their other more prominent hits include "Alive and Kicking" (UK #7, US #3, CAN #3) and "Belfast Child" (UK #1, IRE #1, NLD #1).

"...a forceful, direct set of commercial rock designed to shake nosebleed seats." -Andy Kellman,
