Comments

I think this is the same concert as the one reviewed under the title "Sydney 1980",
for various reasons (e.g. venue, date, track listing, comments by Robert etc). Possibly a different recording, or maybe two companies have released the same material. Anyway, a nice show, and the only bootleg I have seen covering the "Seventeen Seconds" tour.

The quality on this bootleg is pretty
good for an old audience recording, but
it's a great set and an old tour. It's
hard to find shows from the <B>Seventeen
Seconds</B> tour. Good stuff! It has the
only live versions I have of <I><B>17 Seconds</B></I>
and <I><B>Jumping Someone Else's Train</B></I>...and
I have like 30+ Cure boots, so that's
pretty good. I don't usually say this,
but if you see this, and don't have any
Cure shows pre 1984, get it!!!<p>

I prefer a quality audience recording over a soundboard anyday. Gravedigger certainly fits the bill. Considering it was recorded before the days of DATs, it's phenomenal. The band puts on a really great show with a killer setlist. Don't pass this one up.<p>
