Simple Minds are a Scottish rock band formed in Glasgow in 1977. The most commercially successful Scottish band of the 1980s, they achieved five UK Albums chart number one albums and have sold more than 60 million albums. Despite various personnel changes, they continue to record and tour. The band scored a string of hit singles, becoming best known internationally for their 1985 hit "Don't You (Forget About Me)", from the soundtrack of the film The Breakfast Club.

Celebration is a compilation album by Simple Minds, released in 1982. The compilation features tracks from the band's tenure on the Arista Records label prior to their move to Virgin Records in 1981. One of the tracks, "Kaleidoscope", was exclusive to this CD and LP until it appeared on the X5 box set many years later. All tracks written by Jim Kerr, except "Life in a Day" and "Chelsea Girl" by Charlie Burchill and Jim Kerr. Charlie Burchill – Guitar, Vocals. Derek Forbes – Bass, Vocals.

Although Virgin has reissued 12 Simple Minds albums- nearly their entire oeuvre- I've chosen to focus on two of their most wonderfully strange records, 1979's Reel to Real Cacophony and 1980's Empires and Dance, the band's sophomore and junior albums, respectively. These two albums feature Simple Minds pulling themselves together musically and finding their direction.
