This disk comes in a thick white lp sized box. It seems they went too a
lot of trouble to make this disk look nice. The package is very
professional. The disk itself is silkscreened with a likeness of
the art work on the plastic liner that covers the disk in the box.
It kinda looks like a dog...
This is an audience recording with a lot of audience noise. The sound
wavers quite a bit. The show itself is great, the sound quality is poor
however. Not very "full" sounding, no bottom, like a cheap radio would
sound. But it does *look* nice :-).
Unfortunately the recording is not complete,
the whole concert lasted 90 minutes !!!
(longer concert at this time), on this cd
Jumping Someone + Another Journey By Train are
missing, and the last encore as well. But you
can find the missing tracks on others bootlegs
(caterpillar 84 for the last encore)

This is a great 2LP set from the heyday of Cure Bootlegging. If there ever was such a thing...
It's a really long show considering it's from 1980. I recommend this boot because of the "vibe"
here. It was a small show, a small audience, and you get a positive reaction to everything (unlike the
generally boring-as-all-hell Faith audiences--plus, no hideous drum machines here). The sound
quality, contrary to the previous reviewer's opinion, is in mine excellent. The treble is nice and
crisp, and though there is some wavering (it's from 1980, you know what to expect), it's just a really
interesting and different recording. Most club boots sound exactly the same--bad--but this has some
space to it (due to the polite audience). A great listen. Worth it if you can find it!
