The Pixies’ ‘Doolittle’ to Be Reissued On Vinyl for 25th Anniversary
On April 18, 1989, the Pixies released their second full-length album in the form of the now-highly critically-acclaimed ‘Doolittle.’ Six years after its release, it was certified Gold -- and it eventually found itself on Rolling Stone magazine’s ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time.’
Now, 25 years since it first hit store shelves, ‘Doolittle’ is getting an official and massive reissue (slated for Dec. 1). Pressed on 180-gram black wax, the vinyl edition of ‘Doolittle 25’ will be issued as a double-LP, featuring six B-sides, two full sessions with the legendary BBC radio DJ, John Peel, the complete album in demo form and three bonus tracks.
Vaughan Oliver, the original artist behind the record’s cover art, has reimagined it for this release. The two records will sit in a gatefold jacket, highlighting Simon Larbalestier’s photography throughout. Additionally, the vinyl will come packed with a download card for everything on the records as well as four more bonus songs.
For those turntable-less fans, fret not: ‘Dolittle 25’ will also be available on three CDs, housed in a beautiful “triple card wallet design.” To get details on the releases, and to place your pre-order, head over to the Pixies’ official website here.
