Ok, this is definitely from a soundboard...but not a very good recording
Disk one isn't much to write home about...pretty average...
But disk two was worth it for me all the way, the sound quality
even went up on it!
I guess they forgot that they played Why can't I be you so it shows
up twice...I wouldn't mind so much if they were the ones with extra lyrics...
but they're just your average why can't i be you.
Lovesong was done pretty well and it's a pretty hard one to find live.
Another one they don't play alot is To Wish Impossible things
and it sounds GREAT, I've been trying to get it on cd ever since i heard it
on the video of Show...a GREAT track to have!
This version of A Forest is probably one of the best I'm
gonna get, I really like the way it comes out of the extra lyrics, you
just have to have it.
I dont think that this CD is as bad as many of the reviews suggest. I
agree on the To Wish Impossible Things...great to see it
there. Primary is also an interesting ending. My favorite
part of this whole audience recording is when you hear
Can you please sit down... something I hear a lot!!!
Give this boot a chance.... admittedly the sound quality isn't the best,
but it does offer some interesting stuff. According to "Scott's Tour Page",
this concert is actually recorded in Texas, not NY. Anyway,
To Wish... is cool, as is Primary and
Charlotte. Nice to hear In Your House,
done much slower than on Paris. Strange Day
is done fast and great, and A Forest is stellar as always.
Amazing how it comes out differently all the time.... not the best
document of the Wish tour, but at least it's a full show with great encores...
I've been to every Cure show in NYC since
1987. This disc was not recorded in NY!
This bootleg was so bad i just taped it
and sold the cd's. and i never listen to

This seems to be the only album that
covers a FULL Wish tour show, so for that,
I would suggest it to the fan who needs
EVERYTHING (like me :-) The quality isn't
terrific, and there are only a few more
tracks than the 2-CD Show album, but
how can you take a Cure concert CD seriously
without a 15-minute A Forest? You just can't.
So, what my ramblings are leading to, is
that this is worth getting at some point,
but it's not a must buy tomorrow. Got
First: when you get a live bootleg recording you are not supposed to hear
state of the art sound quality but you have a chance to live or re-live
a show. This one is a great performance and as such must be regarded;
all the crap about date exactitud sounds as fundamentalism to me.
Second: As label manager for a mexican indie distributor I had the
chance to import some 5,000 of this one to Mexico and never heard a
complaint. We even played it on the radio and everybody was delighted
to hear this versions since the band has never played Mexico City. This
is the idea.
I sort of hope more scope from you guys.
Third: the best ever Cure show I´ve seen was Woodlands near Houston on
May 1992, any other people attending the show (I was the swirling
derviche on The Walk), any good recording on a recognizable format,
This one is a pretty nice show, for that song
hard to herd in others, by the way the band
played at Mexico (monterrey) in the wish tour
just after houston i was there too, also you
can check it at this site on tour dates.
Finally i enjoy the BBA.
