Cure STANDING ON A BEACH: THE SINGLES Vinyl Record
Vinyl LP pressing pressing of this collection, the first and still most popular Cure compilation on the market. Staring at the Sea contains 13 absolute gems spanning their first eight years (1978-85) ranging from the dark, minimalist "Killing An Arab" to the aquatic 'Close to Me'. This set traces The Cure's evolution from Post-Punk trio through the early years of the band's reinvention as gloomy and mildly psychedelic romantics. Standing on a Beach (AKA Staring at the Sea) includes the catchy "Boys Don't Cry" and "The Walk", The Cure's response to New Order's early attempts at electronic dance music. Also present here are the hauntingly beautiful "Charlotte Sometimes", not available on any of the band's studio albums, and "The Lovecats", one of The Cure's more unique and most commercially successful singles. This excellent compilation effectively summarizes the growth of one of new wave's most formidable forces. It also serves as an ideal introduction to The Cure.
