Cure reissue!

Taken from The Cure’s website. I’ll be buying it for sure the day of release. I have a lot of the material on vinyl and cassette but it will be nice to have on the Ipod friendly format, along with the material that I don’t already have on something else. Best thing is, they finally are righting the wrong they did by removing “World War” from Boys Don’t Cry when it was released on CD as that was one of my favorite songs and it made no sense to remove it.


** The new release dates are 29th November 2004 worldwide and December 7th in the U.S. on Rhino **

Compiled by Robert Smith and Digitally Remastered by Chris Blair at Abbey Road, this 2 CD set is a must for all Cure fans as it contains 6 Previously Unreleased songs and 15 tracks on CD for the very first time! The 16-page booklet has sleevenotes by Johnny Black plus rare and previously unseen photographs from Robert Smith’s personal archive.
