Very good sound quality. Different lyrics on 1st verse of
Why Can't I Be You
The quality of the sound is as good as Show
and Paris. The songs are all real
good with the highlights being Shake Dog Shake, A Forest (unbelievable), and Lament,
which Robert says they had never played before. (note: they have played Cornwall 1982)
The production is shady. No name of a label,
and the picture on the front is the publicity
photo for the Wish album,
without Roger O'Donnell, but with Perry Bamonte, that wasn't released
until 2 years later.
This is an excellent recording of the Glastonbury show.
The track listing is fairly common for the shows during that period
and the performance is quite good. The real jewel is a spectacular
version of lament. This song alone makes this CD a must
have. Boys don't cry is from MTV unplugged and can be found
on various other boots. If you find this CD don't leave without it!
This was a KROQ broadcast, although the
setlist is somewhat different. Not
included are dressing up, inbetween daysthe same deep water as you, and a forest.
Why they put disintegration on it twice,
I don't know. I just don't know why they
didn't leave on the lesser known/boot-
legged songs on this otherwise great
bootleg. Bootlegs sell better when
there are RARE tracks on them, not
the same ole songs.
This is a fairly high quality recording. It's worth it
for the versions of Shake Dog Shake, A Strange Day,
and Lament alone. The version of Why can't I be You?
seems to be lacking intensity, though. A classic version
of A Forest Buy it!
Amy, you made the right choice. Ultra Rare Trax Live is a cheap
compilation of live tracks which are all available
better elsewhere on other bootlegs. But for anyone who
hasn't bought this CD of Glastonbury 90, I would instead recommend
Red Phantom's Never Enough 2xCD
(brown sleeve), which contains the Glastonbury 1990 concert in
full, with even better sound quality than the Zodiac CD !
(Not to be confused with the Never Enough release on Not Guilty
Records, which is a Swiss concert recorded a few weeks later.
This the greatest Cure concert I have ever heard!
Of course, me being a sort of new fan of the cure,
I have only heard about 20 or so concerts. But
this one has got it all! Great song list and
Amazing Sound. There is no way this is an
audience recording because it is just too good.
It is definately as good, if not better, than the sound of
SHOW. Lament is the song that
steals the show, it is definately my favorite from the
concert and is quite rare from the rest of the list.
The cover art is pretty cool, the cover is a pic
of the band in 1990 with kind of a blue/green backround.
It looks a little faded but DONT be fooled by
the cover on this one! You would never guess
this is a bootleg because the sound is so good.
oh yeah, they miss spell O'Donnal with O'Connal.
If you find it BUY IT! Later, Matt
