It would've been nice in 2012...

I believe that Robert (considering former members too) is reluctant to extend the copyright period for Wish.

In this case, I don't think Robert is the hold-up. Probably more the record companies, not wanting to spend the extra pennies for extensive booklets and double CDs and then people don't buy many of them.

A limited run would be quickly sold out.I can even imagine a compilation which has
drawn together with rare and/or unfinished material from the Wish,WMS and 4:13 Dream period,
but I know it's just speculation or a single thought. ;)

It's unfortunate but that will never happen.  Record companies rarely welcome the opportunity to work together to make a product that would otherwise be impossible.  In fact they generally hate each other.  BUT...now that there is a lord god high Record Company, UNIVERSAL, it may be possible since they own f*****g everything!  Except the independents of course, but when the offers start getting too good to pass up, they'll start disappearing as well.  Music is dying and no one seems to have a reasonable solution...I sure don't.  Can't wait for the Wish deluxe edition.  Really!

I don't know.SONA restarted the subject several times in a space of
four years and sadly disappeared. I'm feeling sorry for him/her.
Lost Wishes sounds wonderful.How many fans would recognize The Cure's music without Robert's
voice? Not many.I think it's time for Wish Deluxe!

The Cure's sound works with or without vocals, always.

RE: Lost wishes, the music  is distinctively The Cure, and a couple of the tunes would not be out of place on 'Wish'.  I'd go so far as to say a couple of the tunes are better than one or two on the album.  Like...Wendy Time and even End.  Perfect example of the law of diminishing returns, End never turns out to be greater than the sum of the parts.  Lots of effort but very little to show for it.  I wouldn't mind if they never played it again...providing they ever do play again, that is...

I still check in on this every now and then, quite disheartening this thread has been up for so many years with no hint of the reissue.  A few of my other favorite albums by bands have come out with incredible box-sets featuring unreleased material but not a word on Wish.

The three remaining albums I'd like to have in deluxe editions are Wish, Show and Paris.  This for me is my all-time favorite era of The Cure, 1989-1992.  I change my mind from time to time and the 2008 band is my favorite for awhile, then I go back and start the whole thing over again.  I LOVE the guitars and Porl was on fire, especially after Roger left.  Porl was sort of pushed into a corner and given very few parts to play.  Gee, I wonder if that had anything to do with Roger leaving?  Porl must have felt like he was working underwater with ALL those keyboards in every song.

We had that with The Cure as well, from "TIB" up to "Disintegration". I too had hoped for this one (seeing "Wish" was a big seller, unlike the following album), but maybe the band or the record company didn't agree with something or other when it came to details concerning the re-issue.
My main "wish" was of course hearing re-mastered versions of the "Lost wishes" (or even unreleased instrumentals).
