And finally, track 12 is
the second track on the US High CD single
(not the maxi single). If I find that
I've left anything out, I will submit a
new review. This is so you get the gist

Sound quality is Excellent but, it should be. Most of the tracks are from
stuff released. For anyone who would like to have some great stuff all on
one disk or for anyone who has to have everything they see that says The
Cure (like me).
Copyright is 1996
Disc front insert cover is Blue wavy water, with Robert wearing a
Pink shirt. He's very young in the pic and I've seen this pic before.
The back off the insert is a shot of the group on stage, Robert center,
very very young wearing cut-off blue jeans and a white shirt.
Inside 2 pics left: Robert playing an acoustic guitar wearing a suit
jacket also very young. Right page: Robert blue shirt super gothic eye
shadow ( looks like a vampire ), hand blurred in front pic focused on
his face, excellent pic. I have this picture on a round sticker. This
is one of the best pictures I have ever seen of him.
That about sums it up.

This was my first Cure bootleg, and once
I bought it, I kinda wished I didn't.
The real reason I bought it was so that
I could have the Young Americans cover,
and Lament. Well, once I realized that
my friend already had those songs, I
kicked myself in the head. Anyway,
Young Americans and Lament sound good,
and they should because they are
directly from somewhere else. Purple
Haze and Dredd Song are both "promo
versions" which means they have both
been cut short. That was a tad bit
annoying, but if you are into "promo"
versions I guess those are for you.
How Beautiful You Are, and High are
remixed versions that I'm sure you can
find somewhere else. Neither particulary
grabbed my attention. Close to me is
also a "promo." It is the mixed up
version cut considerably. The two live
songs (Just Like Heaven and Disintegration)
are cool, but they can be found elsewhere
(it even says so on the CD!) Open is just
the plain old Wish version, and a total
waste in my opinion. All in all, I would
avoid this CD. It's pretty much a waste

I bought this boot a while ago, as I am sure a lot of people did, but for anyone that doesn't have it and does not have the I own everything collection, this is definitely a bootleg worth buying. I have heard most of the stuff before, but the live Just Like Heaven and Disintegration are fucking fabulous. I would buy it for just those. I have never heard a better more emotional version of Disintegration in my life. The only negative to the bootleg is that it has a very sloppy editing job. Plus the Flexi-Pop version of LaMent is nothing too great, except for its rarity...I guess. Other than those two things, I can't see a thing that isn't worth buying.

Oddly enough, I found this bootleg recorded on a CD-R.
Sound quality is very good, though - must be a clone
of the original boot. Anyway, it's worth having it...

If you don't have the soundtracks or compilations that some
of these songs are from, not only do you get extra tracks,
but it's cheaper and more convienient to get these all on
one disc. The quality level is high, except for Lament
which is understandable, being from a flexipop album that
wears down fairly quickly. It's worth getting.

Great cd!!! Great versions of a letter to elise and high.
To the sky is also a plus to have on any cure cd.
A must have cd for any cure fan!
This is an ok boot. Most of the songs on it can
be found on other discs. Young Americans
is a good cover and is good to have. The
different version of Letter to Elise is
decent as is To the Sky. The live versions
of Just Like Heaven (using a guitar instead
of keyboard) and Disintegration are both
good. It's not the greatest b side boot
out there, but if you can find it cheap,

being that i have never heard purple haze,
young americans, or to the sky done by the
cure, i found this cd to be quite interesting.
the clip of disintegration and just like heaven
are great! the sound quality is good, if you
exclude just the first to seconds of the
beginning of just like heaven and lament.
i found the remixed version of how beautiful
you are to be better than the one on the
album! overall, i was glad i purchased

Great sounding boot, although it's mostly studio
material so it should. I love the cover of the
Bowie song, The cover of the Jimi Hendrix song
is the first cover on a Jimi Hendrix tribute
album (it's my favorite cover on that album)
Also the Flexi pop Lament version... very eerie.

I think anything that is of The Cure is exceptionally wonderful!
I also think if you are a big collector this is definitely a must
have ! It doesnt matter if you can find the songs elsewhere,
It's still worth having, it's The Cure!
