‘Pixies: Doolittle 25’ Celebrates Band’s Seminal Album In December


In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Pixies: Doolittle 25 comes out on CD, all digital formats, and a double-vinyl edition on December 2 (North America).

The deluxe, 3-disc edition contains all of the album’s B-sides, Peel Sessions and demos from the era, along with the original release. “Doolittle,” recorded in 1988 at Downtown Recorders in Boston, MA and Carriage House Studios in Stamford, CT, was released the following year via Elektra and the group’s British label, 4AD.

The album yielded several of the group’s more memorable tracks, including “Monkey Gone To Heaven,” “Debaser,” and “Here Comes Your Man.”

Pixies: Doolittle 25 totals 50 tracks, which also includes the original album in its demo form (the final release is on the first disc, with the demo version on the third).

Pixies took “Doolittle” on the road to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2009, and one has to wonder if they’ll step on stage for this next milestone.
