Notes6 x 7" box set comprising picture paper label editions of every Cure single from the 1979-1981 era :
Killing An Arab (February 1979), Boys Don't Cry (June 1979), Jumping Someone Else's Train (November 1979), A Forest (March 1980), Primary (March 1981) and Charlotte Sometimes (October 1981).
Each of them comes with its picture cover, all in an 7" x 7" envelope-style picture box made of rather poor quality cardboard.
A folded 14" x 21" poster is included.
Except the tracklist, the only infos on the box are "Robert Smith" (!) on front cover and "Made in Madrid" on the back.
The etchings and picture covers are taken from original Fiction Records releases :
UK : Killing An Arab FICS 001, Primary FICS 12 & Charlotte Sometimes FICS 14.
Italy : Jumping Someone Else's Train 2059 189 & A Forest 2059 229 (on Polydor).
Spain : Boys Dont Cry 20 59 143.
This could make believe that original records were used with an additional picture label, but the incomplete runout inscriptions and the incorrect "FILS 001" on A side confirm that they are just unofficial copies.
None of these picture label singles was ever released separately.
All the labels show the same 1984 photo of Robert Smith, as the front cover picture from The Top era.
Even unofficial, this is to date the only 7" box in The Cure discography.
