REQ: The Cure - Killing an Arab remaster?

Postby alexx » Sun Jul 29, 2018 10:33 am

Hello all!

When the Cure did their remasters a few years back, they left "Killing an Arab" off the Three Imaginary Boys release. Not a big surprise, I suppose, given the racial tensions in the world.

But according to this fansite ... found.html the remastered version DOES appear on this anthology, apparently Lebanese and/or Ukrainian:

Long story short, does anyone have this remastered song in lossless?

(Or for that matter, the alternate version released back in 1979 on the 20 Of Another Kind comp?)
