It was released in September and was their first to reach a wide international audience. Sons and Fascination and Sister Feelings Call were two separate albums. They were assembled from the same sessions and released at the same time and, in some instances, sold as a double-LP set.
The two releases are variously categorised as a double album, two single albums or a single album and an extended play. The current CD remaster contains all the tracks once split onto two LPs, with their respective track running orders preserved. The sessions are the last to have the same line-up as all its predecessors. Drummer Brian McGee left just after recording the set, and was replaced by Kenny Hyslop as part-time member for the upcoming tour.
Hyslop also appeared in the "Sweat in Bullet" and " Love Song " videos. Having ended their contract with Arista the sessions were the first recordings the band made for Virgin Records.
They worked with producer Steve Hillagewho was a guitarist in the progressive rock band Gong. One thing Hillage and Simple Minds had in common was a love of krautrock music. The band's previous three albums were produced by John Leckie.
The rhythm section was made more prominent than on any earlier album of the band, loud, heavy and sometimes anchoring a track to one or two driving rhythm patterns, but also often put at moving angles with some of the other instruments or with Kerr's vocals as in "The American" or "Sweat in Bullet" ; this gave the songs a spatial, multi-planed and atmospheric sound, whilst keeping up propulsion.
Or their double-LP fourth album. Indeed, the two were released simultaneously inSons and Fascination being the main feature, and Sister Feelings Call included as a bonus disc with the first 10, copies of the original release. The restructured Canadian version of the Sons and Fascination album expanded to ten tracks, six of the eight on the UK release and a further four taken from Sister Feelings Callthere shortened to five tracks on the vinyl release and six tracks on cassette had a significantly different running order, beginning with "Love Song".
Upon its first CD release inSons and Fascination came with five of the seven tracks from Sister Feelings Call added directly after the main set, so that the CD played as Good Hair (Interlude) - OutKast - Stankonia single long album.
As two tracks from "Sister Feelings Call" had been dropped due to the Sons And Fascination - Simple Minds - Ghost Dancing limitations of Compact Discs at the time the disc's running length having to fit within 74 minutesthe album was therefore not complete.
No indication was given on the inserts or the disc that the latter five tracks were from "Sister Feelings Call". InVirgin Records released the X5 CD box set [ citation needed ] containing the band's first five albums, each containing extra tracks. This could be considered [ by whom? It was a Top 20 hit in Sweden and Australia. Sons and Fascination found them cannily mining a seam of mesmerising, shimmering art-rock, while tracks like 'Love Song' were so gorgeously lustrous that you could even forgive them their future.
The Fools Overture - Supertramp - Paris reissue includes all titles from both albums. It was also released in heavy duty gatefold picture card sleeve with black inner sleeve.
