This is an ongoing project by Claude Lemaire of Soundevaluations

116. The Cure, Three Imaginary Boys. Fiction Records – FIX 1 (UK) (1979), 33 1/3 rpm. Genre: new wave, post-punk.

Just as British art director, designer, and photographer Bill Smith crafted the iconic imaginative cover art of their debut album, so did the boys bring a billowing breath of fresh air curating a musical new wave on their own terms. Briefly running as Easy Cure—the remaining trio consisting of Robert Smith on guitar and vocals, Michael Dempsey on bass and back vocals, and Lol Tolhurst on drums—dropped the first name out of the equation in April 1978, before soon signing to Chris Parry’s Polydor-distributed Fiction Records, with their debut LP released in May the following year.… Read the full article

I have been assured by co-producer Guy Hayden that this 45rpm box was cut directly from TAPE and that whatever transfers were done (hence the credit) was done as they were for the AAA mono album box, to use as a reference before actual cutting in order to preserve the tapes.
