Yeah, I've got heaps of bootlegs. But I was only listing my official material.  :smth023

I´ve got them all in all different formats (the official releases that is). Of course I have a lot of Bootlegs aswell but mostly recordings with good soundquality. All in all I have 278 different songs with the Cure and then I´m not counting all the different "Forever" and "Why Can´t I be You" more than once. I do count different named soundchecks as for example "Mission Impossible" and "I Hate Rock n Roll" as songs though. My rarest song would be "Boys Don´t Cry" with reverb and a slight echo on the song. It´s named as "Take Two" on the chestnut demo and is also availible as "Take Two" on the bootleg "Let´s Go".

This was also on the official Concert/Curiosity cassette, and from there it was bootlegged and spread all over the internet during the '90s.

So perhaps not a rarity, but finding a good quality copy was a bit more challenging until recently.

I never owned this cassette, but I remember that the commonly circulating bootleg versions were of poor quality and ran way too fast, which really didn't help matters when you consider how young Robert sounded in the first place!

i never heard any those bootlegged version but i don't think concert/curiosity cassette tape was really that rare item(?). at least i think one saw used tapes sold here and there every once in a while (at least ever since the ebay was up) and one certainly didn't have to pay any crazy prices like for the 'lost wishes' tape or something like it.
so i assume finding a good quality copy wasn't that difficult, just as long as you were ready to transfer the tape yourself.

But this is not the same version as the one on the Concert/Curiosity cassette. This is another version with echo/reverb on the vocals. It goes under the name "BDC Take Two". It´s on the vinyl-bootleg "Let´s Go", which is the Curiosity plus this extra version of BDC.

Yes it is. Last track on the B-side (not marked) says Boys Don´t Cry Take Two. That´s the one I mean. And surely that track is not on Concert/Curiosity or the remastered version of 3IB?!

i see. actually i just know how the cover looks like, i really can't check the track listing/how this track sounds like as i don't have that vinyl bootleg myself.
(someone was actually trying to sell it to me with 30 euros some time ago but i refuse pay for bootlegs out of principle. unofficial recordings should be shared without profit, not purchased).

Any chance this is from the December 1978 Peel Session? That version has a distinctive reverb-heavy sound.

Great version, by the way.

No, this version is faster, much faster and the reverb is more distinct. If you want to I can rip it into an mp3-file and post it to any of your email-addreses. If I can find them that is.

But yeah. When I first heard this version I figure it could be from this Peel-session since I find Fire in Cairo has a similar soundimage.
