Extensive Definition

Entreat is a live album by The Cure, recorded live in the Wembley Arena in London in July 1989. The album was first distributed as a promo in France to further promote the Disintegration album (1989), and contains tracks solely from that album. It became a general release when too many bootlegs of the promo surfaced. The last two tracks were released in 1989 as b-sides to the US version of "Lullaby". The songs "Fascination Street", "Last Dance", "Prayers For Rain", and "Disintegration" were also included in the "Pictures of You" Single Album.
