The Cure to Reissue “Paris” Live Album with Bonus Tracks — Listen to “Shake Dog Shake”

The Cure is set to celebrate the 30-year-plus legacy of their 1993 live album Paris with a grand reissue featuring a new 2LP vinyl pressing and a single CD set, both adorned with two previously unreleased tracks. This special edition, remastered by Robert Smith and Miles Showell at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London, is scheduled for release on March 22 and is currently available for pre-order on CD and double black vinyl via Rhino.

Paris, originally a sonic snapshot from The Cure’s 1992 European tour, captured over three memorable nights at Le Zénith de Paris, is known for its eclectic mix of hits and deep cuts, including “Lovesong,” “Catch,” “Play For Today,” and “One Hundred Years.” This reissue not only brings these classics back to life but also introduces “Shake Dog Shake” and “Hot Hot Hot!!!” to the album’s lineup, tracks that were not part of the original live album but are now included to bookend this musical journey.

The remastering process, undertaken by Smith and Showell, ensures that Paris resonates with the clarity and depth it deserves, making this reissue a must-have for fans and vinyl collectors alike. The addition of the previously unreleased live versions of “Shake Dog Shake” and “Hot Hot Hot!!!” adds a fresh dynamic to the album, offering listeners new insights into The Cure’s live prowess.

Listen to “Shake Dog Shake” below:

As Paris steps back into the spotlight, it follows in the footsteps of its live record counterpart, Show, which received its own reissue last year. Both albums commemorate The Cure’s global tour in support of their album Wish, showcasing the band’s ability to captivate audiences with their unique blend of post-punk and gothic rock.

This special 30th-anniversary edition not only celebrates the legacy of Paris but also serves as a testament to The Cure’s enduring influence in the music world. With its meticulously remastered tracks and the inclusion of rare live recordings, this reissue is a fitting tribute to an album that showcases how, for many fans, The Cure’s deep cuts can often considered to be as popular as, or even surpass their hit singles.
