The Cult - Rare Cult Box Set 1985-1995

This here is a doozy of a box, my friends. Way too many disc for me to do all at once if I want to have any kind of variety on this blog but it is such an essential to piece to any discriminating collector's shelf that I will put one up at a time. I love the folks at SFRP that were kind enough to share this with me and in return, I am spreading the love. Ian Astubury has a very distinct voice that cannot be mistaken for anyone else and his songs are top-notch. It's also easy to be a fan of Billt Duffy's great guitar skills - did you know he almost became a member of The Smiths when they were first forming? What interesting music could have come from that collaboration? The world will never know. But The Cult has stood the test of time and continue to give us great rock music. Highlights of the first disc are the radio sessions of Cult classics (a pun!) that are very raw and energetic and guaranteed to delight you kind friends of mine.

Disc: 1
1. Ghost Dance [Radio Session]
2. Bad Medicine Waltz [Radio Edit]
3. Resurrection Joe [Radio Session]
4. Go West [Crazy Spinning Circles]
5. Bone Bag
6. Sea And Sky
7. She Sells Sanctuary

Great Post Rich! Anybody that passes this up is a fewl...yes, I said *fewl*!!

I own this box (I also own the Demo's box which was limited to 3000 but can easily be found via bt) and they are well worth having. Between the remixes, demo's, radio sessions, etc on this box set, it's one of the best box sets ever put together on any band imho. GREAT stuff!

Needless to say, I'm a huge Cult fan and actually met Ian and Billy on tour recently. Great gents they are...and very very underrated in the history of rock.

Thanks for spreading the Cult love man!

Sorry if I came on with too much "chutzpah", was a just excited. The Cult are my all time favorite. I have this box set, absolutely love it. Never picked up the demos.

Great to see others loving The Cult also!
