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).

Now that "Mixed Up" will see a "remastered" version out very soon, I think we can look towards "Wish" remaster being the next one!  :smth023

Also aired a bit more of the interview with Robert, where he confirmed that the 'Wish' remaster is finished and will be the next Deluxe Edition released.

Now that record store day is over and I got my vinyl copy of Torn Down and the download code, it's all about Wish for me now. I hope we aren't years away from release.

One thing that excited me reading this old thread was about the Paris remaster.
Its probably fallen off Robert's back burner years ago. I'm just hopeful it still gets a release. All those songs recorded over three shows in 92 have me drooling. I can only imagine how amazing it could be and will be even more amazed if it actually gets released

There's also the 3-CD Deluxe 'Mixed Up' too; 'Wish' will probably be released at the same time...I'm betting summer/fall of this year.

The 'Paris' album sounds much better than 'Show', to me anyway.  I'd love to get something along the lines of a complete show from the run plus bonus tracks of the various other songs they played at the other two shows so we'd get one version of  each song.  I don't know how many different songs they did in Paris, I haven't checked. 

The 'Show' deluxe edition interests me greatly too.  I don't know if it makes sense to do a 2-CD set of the film soundtrack plus a DVD of the film but I can't really think of anything else.  There wasn't much variation on that tour.

There were eleven songs performed and recorded in Paris that were not released.
Three Imaginary Boys
Jumping S E's Train (snippet)
Fire In Cairo (Acoustic)
It's Not You (Acoustic)
M
Faith
A Strange Day
Forever
Shake Dog Shake
Hot Hot Hot!!
The Big Hand

That would be an incredible bonus disc. I agree it would be fantastic to hear more Paris versions of songs that appeared on Show. I doubt any performance could top the Show version of A Forest.
That one's amazing
