I had been searching for a CD recording of the B-sides to Standing On A Beach for
a very long time. I about freaked when I saw this. I almost never buy bootlegs
but I really wanted those songs on CD. The CD and inserts have no company names
or anything like that on them. Submitted By:firstname.lastname@example.org (Chad Nelson)
Though the collection is not really complete
like the title says(missing Japanese Dream),
I love listening to this album. If you
end up buying
The Complete B-side Collection 1987-1992(CU326),
you should have a full collection.
Though this album mostly has stuff taken
from tape, it has surprisingly good quality.
I suspect some sort of DAT manipulation.
I only have one (well more but one thing to start) thing to say.
If you see this... BUY IT! It is very cool to finally get
the older b-sides on CD, esp. all that stuff from the
Standing on a Beach tape. The quality lags on some of the
really old ones, but besides that it is very clear.
A must have for any real cure fan. Includes some of the best cure titles ever
(of course, most of their B-sides are their most incredible work).

I must admit, I'm not the biggest fan of the Cure's older stuff,
but this is a must have to complete a collection. It's great to
have some hard to find stuff all on one disc. My favorite
song on it is A Few Hours After This. I payed about $30
for it. If you can find it, get it.
this cd is a great buy if you can find it, two tracks in
particular which make it that good to have,
pillbox tales and do the hansa, are extremely
rare. if you have the cassette of
staring at the sea, all of the b-sides are
included except for the two songs,
pillbox tales and do the hansa. also
something to keep an eye out for is a
bootleg i've found called b-sides '87-'94.
it serves (almost)as a b-sides for galore
minus the b-sides from the 13th & mint car
singles; it used to be me, ocean,
adonais; home, waiting,
and a pink dream. it includes purple haze,
and two versions of
hello i love you from
the rubaiyat recordings.
Fantastic, absolutely fantastic. I've been waiting for
this for such a long time, it's great to finally have it.
I suggest you put The Exploding Boy on REALLY loud and
just go completely crazy. One of their best songs.
(In my humble opinion)
i think that this is one of those love hate things. i now have all these b sides on about 3 audio tapes and now one cd.
while it was worth it(arent they all) just to get hansa and pillbox, me thinks they couldve added a little more variation
in the b-sides...practices,outtakes,and messing about to make it worth 30 bucks oh well just a thought......
