The Cure Gives Entreat Double Vinyl Reissue

Posted November 12th, 2010 by eric

If you’re keen on hearing a remixed version of The Cure’s finest live recording, then you’ll be pleased to know that the 1990 promotional album, Entreat, is being given a deluxe reissue treatment on double vinyl in January of 2011. As a former Cure bootleg obsessive, I can attest that this performance is the sound of The Cure at its absolute zenith. It was the best line-up of The Cure, touring behind the best Cure album on what should have been the band’s last tour (following up on all of Robert Smith’s threats, promises, etc.). But, alas, the 90’s happened, anyway, and The Cure decided to participate. The new remixed collection, which was originally part of the Disintegration reissue from earlier this year, will be released by The Cure’s longtime home, Elektra Records. The expanded form adds four tracks to the original promotional disc, and rumors are circulating that it will receive a CD release of its own as well. I have yet to hear any of Robert Smith’s remixes of these recordings, but I’m not sure how they could be improved upon. The version of Disintegration‘s title track is inarguably the best thing the band ever put to tape.
