This CD is the same as 'Pornography Tour' but includes (I think) the whole concert. The second CD is very short with only two songs. The sound quality is really good. The cover of the CD is an older picture of Lol, Simon, (in nice 80's garb) and Robert, who is sporting a nice pink long-sleeved shirt. The booklet inside has 2 pages of text about the Pornography Tour, but the text is written in Italian (I think)
Great renditions of Drowning Man, Cold, At Night, Splintered, A Forest, Figurehead, and an awesome version of Pornography! (To put it in other words, the whole concert is very good.) There is only a little audience noise, but they are far away and only add to the 'live' sound.

This is a REALLY awesome disc to have. Robert often says that Pornography
was the hardest, most intense, most difficult, yet best period the Cure went
through. Here is a stellar live document proving that.
The music is really
thick and angry and intense. Splintered in her Head is a nice surprise.
They play everything from Pornography except Hanging Garden. Weird
hearing Play for Today without keyboards. M fades in as the first song
just after it has begun. Drowning Man is especially cool as is Strange Day
which does not have the break from the record and all subsequent live
performances I've heard. Either they wanted more intensity or Lol is
such a wanker that he forgot to stop. Either is possible. Pornography
is brilliant !! 100 Years is done with a drum machine and Lol on
keyboards just like the record (as if he could play that beat...)
Simon changes the rhythm of his playing in the outro of a Forest
and doubles his usual eighth note breakdown into something much
more vicious and angry. Superb. You can almost see them up on
stage with bleeding eyes and smoke pouring out their angry young
It helps that the tape is sped up a semi-tone as well.
Sucks to play along with though. A final note, I'm sure
All I Have To Do Is Kill Her is All Minefrom
I've never heard anyone make that connection before, but I'm sure
I'm right. All Mine is cut off on Curiosity, and the version
of AIHTDIKH goes on forever..... is really kick ass.... 'Nuff
said, if you see this, buy it. The French liner notes are cool
too. If anyone wants a translation, E-Mail me.
I'm very sorry I don't agree with all
the people who praise this bootleg into
another universe. But I just HATE the
speeding up.. it really annoys me.
That's why I prefer playing Pornography
This is the same as L'Olympia not the Pornography Tour 1982, which was a day before. My question is what is the correct song order? On L'Olympia the Figurehead is first. Plus, a forest is last. And I don't think Forever here is the same as on Concert.
Great Pornography concert... I really wanted a version of All I want to do is kill her It's a bummer it's on the second cd with only 2 songs..(a bit of a pain) Good sound quality overall and a great list of deep/dark songs.
This is the recording of Paris 7 june 1982 (both cd),
it was recorded and broadcasted by a french radio
called "Radio 7", The Figurehead is the first
track of the show (before M), the last is
incredible version of forever. But the most
important is that the radio did not broadcast
everything, that night The hanging Garden
and Siamese Twins were also played, you
can only find them on audience recording,
the whole concert lasted 100 minutes !

I thought this boot from the Pornography tour of 82 was one of the better Cure boots I've heard. I think Pornography and
also Faith are 2 of thier best albums and this live concert shows that. I really liked the versions of 100yrs, The
Drowning Man and A Forest because it shows the rawity of the early 3 piece band with just the guitar, bass and drums with
added synth and some drum machine. Overall this is a great concert. I love the live version of Splintered in her head.
I have over fifteen bootleg cd's and M is head and shoulders above everything in my opinion, and many of the others as you
can see in all of the reviews here. Roberts voice is soo haunting on this with alot of echos. The Drowning man is awesome,
pornography is almoast frightning. I could go on and on.....
