Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE------------------SIMPLE MINDS: SPARKLE IN THE RAIN LP. Released two years after 1982's beautiful and synth-slick New Gold Dream, Sparkle in the Rain continues that earlier record's spiritual overtones while capturing Scotland's Simple Minds at a turn in their evolution and the height of their creativity. The next few years would see the band reap the rewards of their years of hard work through the release of such enjoyable and more straightforward commercial hits as "Don't You Forget About Me," "Alive and Kicking," and others, and who could blame them. But it was Sparkle in the Rain that caught the essence of the band. Like a newly fashioned diamond, it is utterly unique and intense, and it could only have come from Messrs. Kerr, Burchill, Forbes, McNeil, and Gaynor, -- Scottish sons all with a taste for the epic and the North in their veins. Even years after its release, the album is charged with a pure and fresh urgency fueled by McNeil's soaring keyboard tapestry, Burchill's ethereal and razor sharp guitar, Gaynor's crashing, Godzilla-has-come drumming, and Forbes's pounding heartbeat bass. Enmeshed in all this is Kerr singing lyrics more powerful for their imagery than for their meaning, but all delivered persuasively and, again, urgently, emotionally, truthfully. This is a record with its manifold ripped off, with its pistons pounding at dizzying speeds and heights. One can almost feel the heat and light, the expansive blue warmth of Scottish skies and a ride through Heaven. And it is glorious! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! This is the original AM SP-6-4981 STEREO LP (with a gorgeous record sleeve!). Both the cover and the record are in excellent condition---no scratches, no nuthin'. Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. THIS CLASSIC ROCK LP IS INDEED A TREASURE! So bid now to own this great, impossible-to-find ROCK COLLECTIBLE ALBUM.
