The Cure's Three Imaginary Boys Gets Deluxe Edition Treatment

Cure fans, prepare to clear a space off your CD rack for the Deluxe Edition reissue of Three Imaginary Boys. For the devoted Cure fans that already own the original import release, this is still a purchase you will want to make. For starters, the album was digitally remastered at Abbey Road studios. As if that wasn’t enough to make you salivate, Robert Smith compiled six unreleased songs and fifteen demos and live tracks available for the first time on CD. The icing on the cake is the juicy booklet which features sixteen pages of sleevenotes and previously unseen photos from Smith’s personal archive. Look for this to hit stores in November.
