The Cure announce Rarities/B-sides Box Set

From www.thecure.com :

AT LAST THE BOXSET!

FIRST THE PUFF...
THE CURE: JOIN THE DOTS: B-SIDES AND RARITIES,
1978-2001 (THE FICTION YEARS)
Offers Fans First-Ever Collection of Hard-To-Find Gems Career-Spanning Four-Disc Set In Stores January 26th/27th, 2004. As The Cure nears its third decade at the forefront of pop culture, Universal, Rhino and Fiction/Elektra are celebrating the band's remarkable career with THE CURE: JOIN THE DOTS: B-SIDES AND RARITIES, 1978-2001 (THE FICTION YEARS), a spectacular four-disc treasury of hard-to-find gems, never-before-seen photos,
track by track breakdowns and extensive liner notes.
"The first thing I ever did when I got a new single," remembers Cure vocalist Robert Smith, "was flip it over and play the other side. I always hoped the B-side would give me another
version of the artist, something as good as the A-side but somehow different. I expected great B-sides from the artists I loved... "
Come 1978, when The Cure released their debut single, 'Killing An Arab,' Smith expected no less from himself than he had from his heroes. It's evident from the very first cut in this box set, '10:15 Saturday Night,' that he intended Cure B-sides
to be every bit as captivating as their better-known A-sides.
Among the 70 original and digitally re-mastered recordings included on JOIN THE DOTS are 'Another Journey By Train' (b-side of 'A Forest'), 'Sugar Girl' (b-side of 'Just Like Heaven'), 'Halo' (b-side of 'Friday I'm In Love'), a cover of David Bowie's 'Young Americans' and many, many more. THE CURE: JOIN THE DOTS: B-SIDES AND RARITIES, 1978-2001 (THE FICTION YEARS) will be available January 13, 2004 at all retail outlets and at www.rhino.com for a suggested retail price of $54.98. Robert Smith has Produced this first-ever collection of specialty songs, which includes a 76-page book filled with rare photos from Smith's
own archives, a track-by-track breakdown from Smith and bassist Simon Gallup and original commentary written by noted U.K. scribe Johnny Black. Alternative before alternative was the norm, The Cure formed in 1976 when Smith, a 17-year-old attending school in Sussex, formed The Easy Cure with schoolmates
Michael Dempsey (bass), Lol Tolhurst (drums) and local guitar hero Porl Thompson. The quartet began writing their own songs almost immediately, and quickly compiled an impressive repertoire of original material that included the seminal classics 'Boys Don't Cry' and '10:15 Saturday Night.' Over the course of the 27 years that followed, they weathered lineup changes and forged an extraordinary career highlighted by an astonishing
run of artistic and commercial achievement, including chart-topping hit singles, gold and platinum records, countless awards, critical acclaim and an international fan base that follows the band with near religious fervor. They have secured their place in music history by shaping modern rock as we know it today.
In January of 2003, The Cure signed worldwide to Ross Robinson's iam Records, heralding the start of another chapter in the history of one of the few bands in the world able to continually combine innovation, integrity and intelligence with mass global success.

am I shelling out for this? no, not too big a fan (yet) to do that.

i'm happy for the rest of you though, that looks pretty much manna from heaven for any Cure-phile.

Nice to see this longtime promised B-Sides collection finally surface.
Between this and the bonus discs on the remasters, Cure fans will have almost 20 new discs of rare, and unheard material to collect in 2004.

This is coming out Tuesday. Just thought I'd remind you all.




I'm not sure when I'll be getting it....I dont know if I want to fork out $50 to $60 of cd money for this right now. There are some others I'd like first (dont worry, I'll be getting it sooner or later!)
