The Cure - Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (Deluxe 2 Disc Edition)

I have been lucky enough to finally get all the deluxe edition discs for The Cure at last (well, all they have released so far) and am loving them. Every one here knows that I am mad for demo's and alternate takes so this should surprise no one that I pursued these with great ardour. The same with the 'Join The Dots' boxed set. Aside from 'Japanese Whispers' (is that in deluxe format yet? I haven't seen it anywhere) I think this is themost accessible of The Cure discography - for those who can look past the old, doom & gloom image of the band. Robert Smith's fine and amusing songwriting skills are displayed here as well as top notch playing by the band. Most notable for the hits 'Just Like Heaven' and 'Why Can't I Be You?'. there are also wonderful songs just waiting for a deeper listen. The second disc is full of home and band demo's that just drive audiophile's like myself crazy with glee. Daddy has a lot more Cure for anyone who has a particuar one they may need - so let a brother know and I wil do my best to help out. So, put on your black clothes and eye liner and sway back and forth ever so gently whilst this one spins....

Not a very good rip though!

And Japanese Whispers isn't getting the deluxe treatment. Because it was a compilation anyway, and all the tracks are available on the Greatest Hits and Join The Dots.

The New Voice Club Mix is on the 4 disc box set. However, for snobbery points, I also have the vinyl single original release from Germany as well, which I bought when I lived there. Hooray for me!
