  1. Ohhh Craig, thanks for the covers.

    I can´t wait to hear the 3 previously unreleased songs and the 12-tracks Entreat.

    Do you have more images of the booklet ?

    ReplyDelete
  14. i am so excited for this release. thank you for the cover art! now i know it is really happening!

  15. Ta, Craig! That was a nice birthday present to wake up to!! I'll be in the UK when this comes out so it will be great to get a copy where the music was made (That sounded a bit wanky then, didn't it?!??)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Happy birthday, notherbob! : )

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ta very much! Just a quick one.. JBHIFI AU release date says Feb 12, is that correct? Everywhere else says March

    ReplyDelete
  18. Feb. was the original release date, but was pushed back a month.

    ReplyDelete
  19. To Notherbob: No that doesnt sound wanky, just very lucky!

    Happy Birthday~

    Craig: Where did this info come from, the bit about the other remasters forthcoming to be precise?

    Where is the 20th Anniversary DVD Robert? I wonder if Tim Pope interviewed Roger as part of that?

    so many questions.....time warp to March thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. is the promo sampler floating around anywhere yet?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can't wait! I also can't wait to see what my bonus will be from Ideal Copy! SO EXCITED!!!! ;0)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I second with Paul... when,where, and how can we get the Promo Sampler?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I wish there was a [legitimate] way to get the 12-track Entreat with the Vinyl... without having to buy the album twice. :(

    ReplyDelete
  24. Stephanie: I'm guessing the sampler might be the bonus item that Ideal Copy mentioned. : )

    ReplyDelete
  25. Happy B-DAY Notherbob! - you might like to try JBHIFI in Perth, I hear that they sometimes release stuff EARLY. But i'm only talking a day or two, 1 month would probably be pushing it ;)

    How excited am I about all these 2010 releases? Lots (to the power of a hundred fucking billion)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Blast from the Past! This is amazing! Makes me feel like I'm 14 again!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is beautiful.
    This is my first Cure album ever, so the feeling here is really powerful indeed.
    ...and Lullaby is the song and videoclip that introduced them to me, so that cover shot for the extras is... extra special!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maybe bonus is disintegration live from trilogy on CD??? Maybe it's just wishful thinking...

    Notherbob- you live on planet Perth? Where?? You'll have to catch up with the Perth cure crew one day...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm actually pretty disappointed in this. Where are all the unreleased tracks? I rarely care about "alternative" versions of songs and I don't consider "live" versions to be "new" songs. I thought there would be a number of unreleased songs. Instead it just looks like we get the original album, alternative versions of the original album, and an album of live tracks. FIngers crossed that we get more from the remastered Wish (hint hint, Lost Wishes).

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hello JPX

    Lost Wishes is def included on Wish...it came from the man himself.....I am going to be bold and take his word for it.....we will see

    ReplyDelete
  31. @JPX: "All" the unreleased tracks are on there, according to Roger O'Donnell. From his "DISINTEGRATION - Memories of making the album...":

    "Only one song was never used, Pauls song “Another Delirious Night” which is I am sure going to be on the re release which comes out in 2010"

    And I would just like to personally add that I found Mr. O'Donnell to be an EXCEPTIONALLY friendly and polite individual. He deserves many thanks for sharing his memories of the making of the album.

    ReplyDelete
  32. @JPX

    NoHeart
    Esten
    Delirious Night

    are all on the "extras" disc. these are three unreleased songs from the album sessions

    One's a demo, ones a band rehersal and ones a rough vocal demo. That's all there is...they can't magic finished versions of of then air if they were never done at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hope the Mixed Up reissue includes all of the (as yet still unreleased outside of the occasional compilation) 12" extended mixes. Primary, In Between Days, Close to Me, Lovecats, Just One Kiss, etc etc etc... I want nice remastered copies of THOSE!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That looks fucking epic...

    Cannot wait! :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks heaps for all the well wishes, guys! Had an awesome day :)

    @exploding boy: I hail from Greenwood and would be up for a Disintergration Deluxe Edition listening party.. Sound good?!

    I know Swifty, A Letter to Elise and Brad (can't think of his COF name, or is he Swifty?!?? *confused*) are all from Oz, are they from Perth too?

    ReplyDelete
  36. *looks at explodingboy's profile* Oh so YOU'RE Brad!! Don't mind me, having an "old" moment.. Going senile AND having conversations with myself on COF.. :p
    I see you're friends with Perry on FB too.. :)

  37. Attention : Perthites - I plan to have DISINT/3CD ED. in my greedy little hands before you guys are even out of bed. E-mail me your phone numbers though and I'll call you at breakfast and let you listen to it on the blower. I'll even CRANK IT RIGHT UP so you'll be choking on your corn flakes/wheat bix!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Holy Guacamole! This is going to be fantabulous! Looking forward to March!

    sounds good. Send me a message via facebook so we can arrange. (couldn't find you on fb)

  41. Hi everybody

    to Lars: I don't have a studio version(and doubt anyone does), but I have some some bootlegs with very good sound, and here I found two Eyemous, please download here:

    23 Oct 1987 - Stockholm
    7 Dec 1987 - London

    I hope I could help...

    ReplyDelete
  42. So what ever happened to the surround mix that was done for this (and Wish) a few years ago? I don't really care for 5.1 mixes of studio albums, but this is different...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks, Sleepy, Go, and Keith. I always like to fantasize that there are endless unreleased Cure tracks that we will get over a lifetime. I know I have no right to complain, but damnit, I want more new Cure tracks! I'm psyched to hear that Lost Wishes will be on the remastered Wish!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks Craig. I wish the other nights of Wembley were included on this. Would love a remastered version of A Forest from 7.24.89.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I strangely believe there will be more things to enjoy than Disintegration reissue this year...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes. like the Good Shoes album out today...

    ReplyDelete
  47. the ideal copy "extra" better not be that sampler...how dumb would that be to get an extra disc containing samples from the very disc I ordered to get the extra incentive when I shelled out half the price of a cd extra to order it through them instead of getting it cheaper somewhere else.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Todd: If you're not interested in the sampler, yeah, you probably should go ahead and cancel your order with Ideal Copy, because unless something changes, that's what it's going to be.

    ReplyDelete
  49. For UK people on current conversion rates it would be about the same price inc postage + bonus item, so I might pre order very soon!

  50. BREAKING (OFF TOPIC) NEWS.

    Robert Smith has a solo track on Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland film.

    The track is called "Very Good Advice".

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks, Andrew. Just posted it. : )

    ReplyDelete
  52. Urgh! I hate covers with a pic of Robert on it! It serves me up!

  53. What the hell is going on with the UK amazon one?

    ReplyDelete
  54. In 'Don't Shoot the Messenger News' ... It now looks like the release date of the Universal Records reissue editions of Disintegration will be March 30 and the Rhino editions will be a week later on April 6th.
