I’m pretty annoyed that it’s in one of those non-gatefold wide spine sleeves. I seriously hate those things so much. Oh well, I’m happy to finally be able to own this album.

This is a letdown. I managed to find one of the bootleg versions at the beginning of this thread, it's in a beautiful gatefold with lyrics printed on the inside. I hope they at least do printed inner sleeves.....

Also, let me say this about the bootleg, it's ok. But i expect this official press to be exceptional.

Very, very good. 

I picked up an OG copy a couple years back in Barcelona for around €60 so was stoked on that. Only to then find another copy down here in New Zealand a year later in a random store for $35. Even bargained him down from the original $45 he was asking

Nice finds even at €60. Were they both the UK press? Or was Barcelona the Spanish press? I had the Spain one for a long time but finally sold it when I snagged a mint UK copy for $75 a few years back. Same person sold me a "Show" LP for $50 as well. That was a great day considering my Spanish press covered the cost of both.

 

The OG press was also not a gatefold so I'm expecting the new one to be pretty similar. I'm really excited to hear all of the B Sides on the cd as this may secretly be my favorite Cure album. I think the demo of Cut they just released sounds fantastic.

Except the CD edition won't have all the B-sides. Just some (not all) of the extended mixes. And none of the original songs, as they were on Join The Dots ages ago.

Shame, cuz the Wish B-sides might be the best ones they ever did. Certainly the best set of songs relative to the album.... I honestly prefer "The Big Hand" and "Foolish Arrangement" and "Twilight Garden" to half the tracks on Wish itself.

Got shipping notification email from The Record Hub for my 30th anniversary Wish this morning.  Probably won't get it for a couple of weeks since it has to travel over the pond but yay!

What did you order? I thought the picture disc was out on Friday but regular version in January
