The Cure: Standing on a Beach - The Singles (1986)
I also own the CD counterpart of this release, renamed Staring at the Sea, which contains a few extra tracks. It's a really good intro to The Cure. It covers the early darker tracks, up to The Hanging Garden, on side A, while side two commences with Let's Go to Bed, and runs though the Cure's later semi-commercial hits. I used to like side two better, but these days, I prefer side one.
