Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Cure: Robert Smith (vocals, guitar); Perry Bamonte (guitar, keyboards); Porl Thompson (guitar); Simon Gallup (bass); Boris Williams (drums).
  • Recorded live at Le Zenith, Paris, France in October 1992.
  • PARIS is the third of a trilogy of recent live recordings by the Cure. Half of the artists' royalties will go to the International Red Cross Fund.
  • While popular wisdom might demand that a band release some token live concert recordings over the course of a career, who but the Cure would decide to release not one, but two concert recordings within the space of a single year? There is a method to Robert Smith's madness, however, and the two albums are different enough to stand on their own and satisfy fans who love the Cure for disparate reasons.
  • PARIS, the first of the two to be released in America, showcases the darker moodier side of the Cure, favoring extended explorations of some of the Cure's most difficult material. With three tracks from SEVENTEEN SECONDS ("At Night", "In Your House", "Play For Today") and two from PORNOGRAPHY ("The Figurehead", "One Hundred Years") and the presence of only two semi-"hits" ("Charlotte Sometimes", "Love Song"), PARIS is clearly a treat for the long-time fan. However newcomers should also be welcome to dive into the deep end as well. The Cure has always been more accessible than naysayers would admit and the bouncy lively "Catch" will satisfy both the diehards and the casual listeners. Live, The Cure is always ecumenical.

Musician (1/94, p.92) - "...PARIS finds [The Cure] in full mope-rock mode, emphasizing dark drones that evoke an almost Mahlerian sense of melancholy...the one worth returning to..."
