When I first got into The Cure back in 1992 all I had was a cassette player, so all my older and first Cure purchases were on cassette. Since then I've been trying to upgrade these all to cd and many have been reissued as double disks (hurray... that is as soon as I get some cash to buy them LOL!)
Here's my collection of store-bought Cure cassettes. (my taped radio interviews and things friends taped will be presented in another post)
These are The Cure's first releases. I have them all organized by dates. Faith and Carnage Visors was a double release.
The Peel Session. :-)
The single of the Fascination Street has a remix of Fascination Street and Babble which wasn't on the regular release of Disintegration.
The backside of the Pictures Of You single has a live version of Prayers for Rain.
The backside of the Never Enough single is Harold and Joe a track only on this cassette.
The backside of the Friday I'm In Love single is Halo a track only on this cassette.
The backside of the High single is This Twilight Garden a track only on this cassette.
Pictures Of You Cassette Single - given to me by a Cure fan I met (and later befriended) at a card shop. :-) I believe he also gave me the Fascination Street single as well as taped some great Cure and Tori Amos things for me. :)
Entreat - live 1989 concert. A gift from a long-time friend.
The Glove is a collaboration between Steve Severin of Siouxsie and the Banshees and Robert. It's out of print. I scored this copy in a used shop in NY for $1, I guess they had no idea that it was out of print. Their bad, my good. LOL
The Crow is there because they did a song called Burn on there. (Gotta have it for the one song, you know.) ;-)
Rubayait - Elektra's 40th anniversary. Includes a remake of The Doors' Hello I Love You by the Cure. :-)
