When The Cure reissued Faith as a double cd set, I was surprised this song wasn’t on it. This version of Play For Today is from a rehearsal session in 1979. I almost like it better than the version they ended up releasing on the record.

  1. strange that “do the hansaw” is included though… it would be really nice if they’d have reissued the albums without the live tacks – the b-sides are great, but the live stuff is, well, live…
