Vinyl LP pressing. Sunshine on Leith is The Proclaimers' second studio album, released in August 1988. The album title is about their birthplace Leith. The album had three singles, including "I'm On My Way" and "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)", the latter of which reached #11 in the UK upon it's initial release and also became a hit in the US five years later following it's inclusion on the soundtrack to Benny & Joon in 1993. The Proclaimers is a Scottish band composed of the identical twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid. They grew up in Edinburgh, Cornwall and Auchtermuchty. When they lived in Auchtermuchty they attended Bell Baxter High School. After several punk rock bands at school they formed the Proclaimers in 1983. The pair came to public attention when an Inverness-based fan sent their demo to the English band the Housemartins, who were impressed enough to invite the Proclaimers on their 1986 United Kingdom tour.
