Cure in 'Best of Chorus' DVD boxset

"INA, the french TV archives company, will release in October a 3 DVD boxset with the best moments of the "Chorus" (a famous music TV program from the late 70's-early 80's). This DVD will include the Cure performing in the Theatre de l'Empire in Paris (november 79). You can also watch the show online from the INA website." (Thanks Jerome C.)

Update: You can see the full clip at Slicing Up Eyeballs (ignore the venue and date listed, they're incorrect). You can also see that "Cure in bed" clip mentioned earlier, here.

Cure FM 2nd broadcast

Listen to, and/or download, the second broadcast of Cure FM from Oct. 6th, 1990 at Slicing Up Eyeballs. And here's a transcript of the show. (Thanks Andy)

Washington, D.C. 84 complete soundboard

"As most people know Washington, D.C. 1984 commonly circulates as the official COLD bootleg, however the last 5 minutes or so of the last song Forever is cut, the bootleg also has a small cut in A Forest keyboard/guitar intro.

Wolfgang's Vault acquired Bill Graham Presents master recordings some years ago and has the complete uncut show streaming as low bitrate MP3, unfortunately for non-members the amount it allows you to play per month is extremely limited. However if you buy a 1 year membership for $48 you can access the whole show as 192kbps MP3.

*It's the 2nd last show of The Top Tour 1984, and is just Boris Williams' 8th show with the band, he'd only been with the band 10 days when they played this show!" (Thanks Brent)
