Best "Faith" Ever?
« on: February 14, 2017, 18:19:51 »
From a 34-minute clip that got out somehow after the original hour-and-a-half clip.

'Beware of those in whom the desire to punish is strong.'
(F. Nietzsche)

Thanks for sharing! I was at this gig... it was an epic 4 hours show and they closed with this song, I remember it clearly, it was the fourth and final encore of a magical evening.

However, 2008 was not their best year when it comes their "sound", therefore I am not sure if this is their "best" Faith version. I think the one from 1986 (Teenage Cancer Trust concert) was better.

Best show of the Cure quartet, everything anyone could have wanted.  The DVD really ought to be the first thing into the shops...and soon.  Incredible show.

I think the same. It is the best visual version I've seen so far, but the best Faith
ever is definitely older. Has the TCT '86 version ever been published?

Hi,
two questions for you here;

At the time of the Deluxe reissues, I don't remember on which Cure fan site they made a so-called '3cd compilation', it was made of various mp3 of the time period live versions, demos, etc... Doe that ring a bell to you?

Because i was listening to it tonight and I don't know from when is the faith live version there. Apparently from after 1996, i'd say because of the drumming.

If anyone can help, thanks!
