Most of this can be found on legitimate releases, though
if you already have them but want all of them tucked away on one
single CD, this may be for you.

The first five songs on this CD are obviously
taken from vinyl. All of the other songs
on here are from CD sources. Awsome quality.
The Big Hand and A Foolish Arrangement
were only available in the UK single A Letter To Elise
, so it is good to get them together, because I recall seeing that
CD single going for over 12 dollars.
A Japanese Dream is a grating recording; that's my only
complaint of this cd.. the only track you can really hear the scratches of
vinyl on is Breathe, aside from that one it's difficult to tell. They
list The Big Hand as "The Big Band", which is amusing.
Good good bootleg. Very nice to have all of these songs on one cd.
I bought this thing for $30! Boy was
I disappointed... The main reason I
bought this disc was to have the Kiss
Me x 3 b-sides, but the sound quality for
these songs was horrible. They were
obviously taken from vinyl. I don't
know why someone didn't try to at least
make the sound quality on these tracks
somewhat comparable to the latter tracks.
The later songs sound great, though.
And having the Hello, I Love You,
tracks was a big bonus. The other songs
are all available on cd-singles, so i
wasn't too concerned with them, i just
wanted some good-quality Kiss Me tracks
and was disappointed when I heard them.
Oh yeah, they left out 2 late, one of
the better b-sides from the Disintegration
album. If you are mostly interested in the
Kiss Me tracks (like I was), don't buy
this unless you're desparate. You can
probably still find the 12"s somewhere,
and for a reasonable price, and they'll
As was stated by others,I too purchased this c.d. for the
Kiss Me singles.
I am always happy to hear different cure songs. Unfortunately the price
tag was around 30 bucks (ouch), now I hear the cure is coming out with the
singles legitimately. Oh well.
This boot sure isn't chesp... especially if you get it from a
friend and not a vendor. I'll have to agree with the above,
the Kiss Me b-sides were not all that great,
but the only one I like of them is Japanese Dream anyway.
I got this and the previous b-side collection together in a
sort of packaged deal. It is nice not to have to flip through
10 singles to listen to all these b-sides,
which is the best thing about it. Plus, it has
Purple Haze and Hello I Love you,
and I don't know about all of you, but I have had a hell
of a time obtaining either of those.
Both the b-sides from A Letter to Elise were
a bonus as well.
I know The Cure plans to put out official b-sides
comps.... but if you look at this and the previous
boot you'll see that they both manage to fill up
2 CD's. I know the WMS b-sides will be on the
official comps too... So, you won't be getting all
the songs you get on these on the official releases.
(Unless they drop Carnage Visors, which would be a
plus, that thing gets annoyng after the first ten minutes)
These are far from complete! However, good luck finding a
better collection of early b-sides on cd. Missing are the
early rare live b-sides like Faith and A Forest.
Also, none of the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me b-sides
are here. Don't forget that there's only 2 b-sides
from Wish. Still these are some classics. Buy it!!!
I am an avid fan of The Cure and I was very excited when I recieved
a copy of this album as a gift. I think its the best album I own to
say the least...
i paid $25.99..i feel it was worth it...
there are some songs from record...so there are
the slight scratches...most of the cd is very clean...
being that it was stolen from released cd maxi singles.
go for it...buy it..if you were buying all the singles you could go cheaper going this route.
one of the boots i got..
This cd is really good. It took me a while to find it and
I payed about $30 for it, but it's worth it. Like some
people have stated, the first 5 songs were recorded from
vinyl. That's really the only problem I have with it.
To have most of the B sides all on one cd is great!
Halo, Out of Mind, Snow In Summer, and
Harold and Joe are great songs. The version
of Hello I Love You is really good too.
If you see this cd, BUY IT!!!
This is a bad bootleg. But even at its worst, it's still better than a
lot of other ones, so i rate it at a 6. Anyways, the first few tracks
are poor quality. When you get to purple haze, things
pick up a bit. The first few tracks must be off of vinyl. This is not
a "complete" b-sides from 1987-1992. It's missing, notably, 2 late,
one of the best b-sides off of lovesong. It could
definitely stand to be revamped. They could've gotten rid of the
hello i love you (slight return), which is corny on its
own, and replaced it with 2 late. There would most
likely have been enough space. If you see this cd, two things
should go through your mind. 1. Am i buying this for the km3
b-sides? if so, search for them on vinyl, or even another
bootleg. 2. do i really need this? probably not, if you
have most of the songs on it, get a blank tape and record
...or a minidisc system (they're really cool!!!!!!) so,
in conclusion, please don't waste your money like i did.
This is a wonderful CD. It is meant to be a
companion to the first compilation
(2 Late can be found on that CD) It
has all of the bsides from KMKMKM,
3 out of 4 of the Disintegration songs
and all 6 wish bsides. A bargain at $30.
If you see this..get it (although the
quality suffers a bit on the first
5 tracks...they are still great though!)

I first heard this collection from a CD a boyfriend at the time insisted, I hear.
I immediately fell in love with the cd, unfortunely the CD left with the boyfriend, and I want my own copy of the cd!
If any one out there would be so kind as to let me how , where, and how much it would cost me to get this collection back,
PLEASE email me! I'd be very greatful :) It's such a nice collection, and I'm a true Cure Fan!
Robert if you're reading this, you're the GREATEST!
