This is a very nice looking Virgin British Import Double LP with BIG BOLD live rock sound. These import pressings consistently trounce the domestic versions.

Recorded primarily at Le Zenith in Paris on the last date of a world tour in August 1986 and released as a stopgap to satiate fans while the group spent another two years crafting its studio follow-up to Once Upon a Time, Simple Minds’ double-album Live in the City of Light was a good summation of the band’s rise to worldwide fame between 1982-1985.
