5.0 out of 5 stars Another valuable addition for all you incurables out there.........., 16 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Disintegration [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Ok so if you're into the Cure, you were always going to add this to the collection. However I have found other groups are keen to fleece the fans by making one or two subtle changes to material you already have umpteen times, and stung you for plenty of money in the process. Not so with the Cure, this stands up along side the previous Deluxe Releases, and at the price I paid via Amazon, represents even better value than ever before.
The Album and Entreat are of course familiar to most of us, but the real treat for me was a little gem hidden amongst the 20 demos and outakes also included here in a 3 disc set (which also has the tastefully done plastic packaging and extended sleeve notes with unseen pics).
The gem I refer to is titled Pirate Ships, a solo effort by Lancashire's finest, Mr.R.Smith.
The track simply blew me away, had it made the album and a single I'm sure it would have been another classic. I played it to the wife, who despite not seeing them since the 80's, still likes to listen to them, and she was in full agreement - The best unheard Cure track we've certainly come across. Buy it while you can, there is something for everyone on these three discs. Enjoy!!!!

Good review and I agree with most of it. However, Robert Smith is from Crawley in Sussex, not Lancashire.

I do agree with the sentiment about the Patti Smith track "Pirate Ship". I'm still torn between this and their version of "Hello, I Love You" as the track that SHOULD have been included on "Rubáiyát".

cheers for the reply, yeah I understand Robert was brought up in Sussex, but pretty sure he was actually born in Blackpool

Yeah according the "Never Enough" Biography his family is from Blackpool, but he grew up in Crawley and the band formed there...

This might be speculation, but the front cover image of their "Galore" singles compilation shows what appears to be a very young Robert Smith on the beach at a seaside resort.....could this be Blackpool? Anybody confirm?
