It was this shorter version that I accidentally bought but the other songs are available to buy as digital downloads if they really matter to you.
This album is the more accessible version of the band whilst the sister live album from 1992 called Paris has more of the older songs on it.
Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s I had several attempts at getting to know and like The Cure but I never loved them in the way I do Echo & The Bunnymen. However in more recent years, the band have grown on me.
