    I think it had to do with being a b-side and other tracks also to compensate for not re-releasing or remastering Japanese Whispers, as all those tracks were remastered on Join The Dots:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Join_th...ction_Years%29

    Join the Dots: B-sides & Rarities is a box set of The Cure, released on January 27, 2004 by their former record label Fiction. (Elektra and Rhino co-released the compilation in North America). This box set is a four-disc compilation of B-sides and rarities, digitally remastered from their original tapes. The box set includes all B-sides by the band, apart from a number of remixes, as well a number of unreleased songs and songs that had been out of physical circulation for years. Many of the songs had not appeared on CD before. The set includes a booklet with track-by-track commentary and an extensive overview of the band's history up to 2004, followed by an extensive list of The Cure's discography.

    The B-side "I'm Cold" features singer Siouxsie Sioux on backing vocals; the collaboration came at the time when The Cure were supporting Siouxsie and the Banshees on their 1979's British tour.

    Some of the B-sides released between 1982 and 1983 were first compiled on the Japanese Whispers compilation album issued in late 1983.

    It also has versions of "Just Like Heaven," "Hey You," and "Icing Sugar," which didn't differ from the originals nearly enough to need to include them. I would imagine they are in there for completion. At the time, there were an awful lot of terrible versions floating around on Napster, and I suppose it just felt right to make sure everything ever put out as a B-side was given a place.

    but it's 8 solid tracks that are all fantastic with no filler (although most cure albums don't have much in the way of filler, in my opinion).

    Yep. Just One Kiss is my favorite Cure track. Check out the extended version of it on YouTube that is still only available on vinyl and cassette. It's even better than the original and twice as long with an extended intro.

    While Join The Dots is quite complete, it's still missing really good extended versions like the above, and remixes that really add to the original like High (Higher Mix) from the Wish era.

    I'm not the biggest fan of remixes done for their singles, but those remixes for all of the Wish singles were all amazing! Wish (har har) they could've kept the remixes good for WMS...

    I loved the "Higher Mix" of High so much more than the album version. A friend had given me that version on a mix tape, and I hadn't heard the album version until I got the album. I was actually quite disappointed with the album version.

    Speaking of the Wish era, it will be great when that friggin deluxe edition comes out with non-cassette rips of Lost Wishes on the bonus disc.

    Yep, I have those rips on disk, somewhere. Not all that great quality, so I don't dig them out much.

    Is the Wish Deluxe Edition ever going to come out? I hope it does.

    I guess it goes without saying that Disintegration is a masterpiece, I would easily place it as one of my top ten albums of all time. However there is more to the Cure than Disintegration, The Head On The Door, Faith, Seventeen Seconds, Pornography, Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, and of coarse Wish (please release the Deluxe Edition). One of my favorite bands.

    Holy crap, just saw what he wrote on the guitar up for auction at the moment. "I'd love to watch him sleep / I'd love to watch him dream." How very cool. Worth whatever wins the bid, in my opinion.

    Why he still hasn't released a studio version of A Boy I Never Knew I don't understand. It's an incredible song.

    edit: well, that studio demo version leaked, but it wasn't great quality, and there are live versions.

    Even crappy rips and cell phone videos make that sound like a song that should have booted at least two songs from the eponymous album.

    The Cure

    I've got some cure leaks to source it seems!

    My fave non join-the-dots a/b sides from that era are just one kiss 12" (*fairly* sure, from memory, it's the 7" mix in JtD) and pictures of you 12".

    It also includes a "cleaned up" version of A Boy I Never Knew that a fan created, taking away cracks in the audio etc.

I am one of the few that puts The Top in my list of favorite albums of all time. And Kiss Me would be magnificent. It looks like "Torture" was also debuted. I'm not going to miss this, if given a clear chance. I missed the other Trilogies, damn it.

    Craig Tweeted a billion links to the press release stating this is happening as well as releasing the previously shelved other half of 4:13.

    Agreed. Hell, why don't they release an entire collection of their videos and all sorts of archives for a video/film anthology? And will there be any plans for Wish to get the deluxe treatment very soon.

    I know, right? I've been bitching about that one for some time now. Sadly, it probably won't happen this year, since it looks like a very full schedule.

    Let's bear this in mind:

    >>

    No further details were offered of the touring or release plans — although fans should always be wary of Smith’s announcements of new material.
    In 2009, upon revealing plans for a deluxe reissue of Disintegration, Smith also teased a number of releases that have yet to see the light of day, including DVD reissues of “The Cure in Orange” and “Show,” a boxed set of BBC recordings and a sequel to 1990 remix collection Mixed Up.

    What we might expect from '4:14 Scream'

    Going back through some of the old 4:13 era articles and some more recent stuff, and thought it would be fun to put together a list of songs that might be included on 4:14 Scream.

    Songs that could be on it:
    A Boy I Never Knew
    Please Come Home
    (Both of these were from 'The Cure' sessions, but said to have been re-recorded during the '4:13' sessions)

    Strum (from 'The Cure' sessions)
    Lusting Here In Your Mind (from the '4:13' sessions)
    Christmas Without You (from the '4:13' sessions)
    An unknown number of instrumentals (from the '4:13' sessions)

    In an NME interview (March 2012), Robert said he "has 12 tracks, including instrumentals, that he wants to release, but only as part of a double 4:13 album." In that same interview, he says 4 songs on '4:13' should be on '4:14', and 4 on '4:14' should be on '4:13'. Hoping Robert will tell us which ones should be switched, then we can all make proper versions of the albums, the way he originally envisioned them.

    Robert told UOL (April 2013) the following: "my personal favorite is the album that we're about to launch. I think it's definitely my favorite kind of music. There's a song on the album called "Christmas Without You". It's the best song I've ever written."
    The song (which was said to be about the death of a close friend) was recorded during the '4:13 Dream' sessions. In this Blender interview (March 2008), Robert called it “one of the most unhappy things we’ve ever recorded”

    Overall, the tone of the album should be "dark", as it was always referred to as the darker side of the 2 albums. However, as Robert said, he had to switch a few songs up, to give '4:13' a bit more balance, so it's not out of the question that there could be some lighter moments on this one. Just hope and pray there's not another 'The Only One' on this!

    As long as those songs see the light of day, I'll be happy. I won't turn down a new Cure album though.

    I just hope the production for the new record is better than the last one as I had some issues with the production on 4:13 Dream. I'm looking forward to the dark sound and hear what Roger and Reeves will add to the songs if they're involved in the re-recordings.
