Description

Offered for sale is a UK pressing of the 1993 4 LP box set Pure Cult: For Rockers, Ravers, Lovers and Sinners by the Cult, consisting of two LPs of studio tracks and two LPs of live material.

About this copy: This copy of Pure Cult is an original 1993 UK pressing.  The album was not issued on vinyl in the U.S.

The box is M- with a small stain in the upper right hand corner where a price tag was removed.

The four discs are M- and look unplayed.  The original custom inner sleeves are included.

A nice copy of a terrific set that’s rather hard to find on vinyl.

Background: Pure Cult was part compilation and part live album.  The first two discs contain the band’s “greatest hits,” and the second two discs contain material from a 1991 live performance at the Marquee in London.

Allmusic.com gave Pure Cult a 4 1/2 star review:

Say what you want about the Cult — a band which will certainly go down as one of the most schizophrenic in rock history — but singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy could sure write a great tune. Just glance at a few titles included on their hard-to-find, but definitely best greatest-hits collection Pure Cult: “Edie (Ciao Baby),” “Love Removal Machine,” “She Sells Sanctuary,” “Wild Flower,” “Fire Woman,” “Rain,” “Lil’ Devil,” and “Sun King.” Spread haphazardly across the disc (rather than in chronological order), each track’s uniqueness is even more evident, further showcasing the Cult’s fearless creativity.
