    The Cure vinyl is not news. Why don’t they get “wish” released on vinyl instead this awful album?

     
  • 1) Acoustic Hits is great and is a first time to vinyl release. 2) the Greatest Hits album also has a pair of first to vinyl tracks, Cut Here and Just Say Yes. 3) Wish was already released on vinyl (yes, i know it’s rare and expensive).
