789. The Cure - Show

Before the internet if you wanted to hear your favorite band live you had to either see them, rent the video or buy the live disc/lp... sure you could swap tapes but it's nothing like file sharing. If I had gotten "Show" off a site I'd be perfectly happy but I'm not for a few reasons... first it's a single disc. We all know the Cure play long sets there's no way a whole show could fit on one cd. Further evidence of this was the release of the four song "Side Show", four tracks that did not make it onto the original CD... more importantly though is that the sound quality is simply poor. Having recently heard the band, they are loud but are crystal clear. The main plus was that it's from the Wish tour, an album that I love.
