  1. i'm a long time cure collector but i will not sign up on facebook for that reason. still hate this sort of thing;-)

  2. Thanks.

    Until the Secret 7" thing , i didn't have one. They got me!

    I tried to leave a comment here for the test-pressing, but the 'enter' button didn't publish my comment.

  3. The first time on vinyl for these remastered? I've seen them in stores many times!!!!

  4. I'm with GCS1. I will not sign up for that fucking ridiculous site under any circumstances.

  5. I think it's the first time that Fiction Records have pressed all of them on 180gram Colored Vinyl. Other companies have pressed them on standard black 180gram vinly, but not on 180 gram colored vinyl. So..they are kind of right, but.... seriously, I MUST HAVE THESE. The kicker is that if you live in the US and you are buying online from the UK, you know that you are going to be paying $40 - $75 if you get them at market price. With exchanage rates and shipping, my best guess is that buying all of these represses is going to be somewhere between $250 - $400.

    We really need to organize someone that will buy these and ship them to know, Pay Pal them the money..etc.

    The even crazier thing is that I am a The Cure vinly collector and I generally buy two to play and one to keep wrapped up for "collecting" purposes, so I'm seriously screwed on this one.

  6. that easy (cure) huh?? fingers and toes twisted and crossed....

  7. On colored vinyl ! Cool ! I'm in !

  8. explodingboy, you mean the non-official vinyl lovers from russia? I dont think they count these. This is the first time on vinyl for official ones/Lasse

  9. Well, another US fan hoping for a miracle...I must agree with a previous poster, at nearly a 300 - 400 dollar investment, it seems like I'll only ever have the chance to see them in a photograph. Guess I'll remain happy with my first printings of the original releases, at least I can say I bought those when they came out! OH, and the double entreat plus, which seems to be the only cure item headed to the states for this years RSD. Guess its a fair trade, we did get 6 Reflections shows over here. And I did manage to spend my entire years budget on getting to one. :-)
