    Mammoth. As soon as this hits Amazon.co.uk I’ll be pre-ordering it. It’s so good to see albums outside the mainstream and pop to get the special treatment.

  2. Francis says:

    How come there is no UK Amazon Pre-order?

  3. Gary C says:

    Vinyl on Amazon.de is a steal, I’m guessing you won’t find this any cheaper when it does appear on Amazon.uk.
    The digital version is already posted for pre-order on Amazon.uk at £16 so that suggests to me that you’ll pay around £20 for the physical 3CD release.

  4. chdx says:

    No info regarding a remastering on this one, and the Mimotaur’s 5.1 audio would have been great…

  5. Paul Kent says:

    A 25th anniversary vinyl reissue of Doolittle that doesn’t actually include Doolittle? Is it just me that finds that a bit odd?

    • England says:

      Possibly not… but it does address the issue of fans being expected to buy the same album again and again and again… and for those fans that prefer, they are getting the extras on vinyl, and keeping this to a double vinyl edition does (apparently) keep the price down.

    • Lee Taylor says:

      Yes, at the very least, they could release the original album separately. I’ll stick with the CD issue for this one.

  6. auteur55 says:

    It’s remastered right? Confused.
    I always wondered why no proper re-releases of the Pixies albums have ever occurred. Even that insanely expensive box sets was just original albums and a bunch of swag. Excited to get this but want to know what they’ve done with the sound.

    • Mik says:

      Actually, Mobile Fifelity re-released Surfer Rosa, Doolittle, Bossanova and Trompe Le Monde as separate (and amazing sounding) sacd-hybrids and lp’s some years ago, by the time Minotaur was released.

      • auteur55 says:

        Weird I had no idea this had happened. Problem is those reissues are now $30 a pop! I would also think that if you owned the SACD editions you wouldn’t want to replace it with this new release.

  7. Simon F says:

    Vinyl for me! I still have my original vinyl Doolittle Lp so this will be a fine addition to it. An excellent release. One for the Xmas wants list methinks.

  8. Ian P says:

    The CD can be preordered at the band’s own site for £12 plus £2 postage.

  9. Charles Hodgson says:

    http://pixies.tmstor.es/
    £12.00 + £2.00 postage for 3CD.
    £22.00 + ? postage for 2LP.
    CD version esp seems exceptionally good value.

  10. DaveDogFacedBoy says:

    I think doing the vinyl as the extra tracks only is a great idea. The LP itself is easily available either 2nd hand or from usual stiockists so there’s no need for a double dip.

    Vinyl ordered from amazon.de

  11. Ross says:

    Jsut pre-ordered at the Pixies website. £14 for a 3 disc set is a steal, especially for a classic album like Doolittle. Early christmas present for myself. Would be wonderful to do something similar for Come On Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa. And the Throwing Muses albums.

  12. Paul Kent says:

    I take back my vinyl comment, then. I suppose I was just looking at it from the point of view of it being remastered. But, yeah, if it’s not it seems a good idea to just release the extras. So… why not with the CD, too? :D

  13. fedge says:

    Mobile Fifelity’s Bossanova has a nasty glitch. When I mentioned it to them they blew me off and said “too bad, live with it”. Their subsequent Trompe was well done, however.

  14. Dean says:

    At the time I’m writing this the Amazon UK price is £11.99.

    Order in!

  15. Simon F says:

    Just bought this today on vinyl from a proper bricks n’ mortar shop for £24.99 and you do get a copy of the original album chucked in. Comes in a new die cut inner sleeve. Possibly addded as a last minute bonus extra as it will not fit into either end of the main gatefold album sleeve! Excellent stuff all round.
