When the reissue of The Cure's landmark album Disintegration on LP arrived in June of 2010, it featured none of the bonus material included on the 3CD and digital editions - which is why it perhaps comes as no surprise that Entreat Plus, the expanded edition of the band's 1990 live album, is released as a separate 2LP set.
Originally released as a promo disc in 1990, the eight-track Entreat - recorded at London's Wembley Arena in July 1989 - was later released commercially in Europe. The expanded edition included with the 2010 reissue fleshes out the album to replicate a full live performance of 1989's epic Disintegration, with tracks remixed by Robert Smith.
The Cure evolved into one of the most visionary, creatively satisfying and influential groups to come of age in the 1980s. From dreamy pop to moody expressionism, their signature sound is adventurous, hypnotic, and beautifully melodic. It all started in 1976 as 'Easy Cure', formed by Robert Smith (vocals, guitar) along with schoolmates Michael Dempsey (bass), Lol Tolhurst (drums) and local guitar hero Porl Thompson. They began writing and demoing their own songs almost immediately, playing throughout 1977 in Southern England to an ever growing army of fans. In 1978 the 'Easy' was dropped, along with Porl, and an eager trio now known simply as The Cure were quickly signed to Chris Parry's new Fiction label.
Entreat Plus contains live recordings of songs from their Disintegration album performed at London's Wembley Arena in July 1989.
