Original 1979 UK press

Chelsea Girl was released as a single from Simple Minds debut album, Life In A Day, back in 1979. The track was considered the strongest track on the album. However it was held back as the second single by Arista Records and it failed to chart at all. The track was a tribute to Nico and the Andy Warhol film Chelsea Girls, it was a popular live song for the band. The album was overproduced and undermining the band’s sound and in a 2012 interview, the band’s frontman Jim Kerr expressed regret that the album’s production had resulted in the tracks lacking a real spark that was part of their live performances, and described his feelings about the album as bittersweet. He recalled at the time, as we were about to drive up to Scotland, someone gave me a cassette of Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division… and I thought, we’ve completely blown it.—ruing that their live material had sounded more like Velvet Underground and less like the Boomtown Rats. The B-side is exclusive for this single
