Sunday Express – Live is the second (double) live album by Scottish rock band Simple Minds, released in April 2007.

History[1][2][edit]

Simple Minds arranged to release two promotional exclusive free live CDs in April 2007 through the UK newspaper The Sunday Express, making it only the band's second official double live release in its entire career, the first one being Live in the City of Light released in May 1987.

This first CD Live Volume 1 was released on 15 April 2007 and the second one Live Volume 2 a week later on 22 April 2007.

The 2-CD live album features live songs from a variety of sources recorded during the 2006 Black and White Tour.

Although no recording dates were given for any of the songs, it is known that "Sanctify Yourself" was recorded on 28 August 2006 at the T on the Fringe music festival in Edinburgh.

Each CD includes three ten-minute bonus tracks of ambient music credited to Austin Stuart Hanlin.
