*** Résumé en anglais seulement ***

First released in 1989, Doolittle, the second Pixies album, was an instant hit with both critics and fans. It’s slow burn success has helped it to sell well beyond Gold status in Canada and close to a million copies in the US.

Among the praise thrown Doolittle’s way, Pitchfork ranked it at Number 4 in their Best Albums of the 80s poll, while NME writers in 2004 named it their second best album of all time. 2009 saw the band tour the album to celebrate its 20th birthday and 5 years on, they’ve decided it’s now time to give it the deluxe release treatment it deserves.

The vinyl version tracklisting includes the B-sides, the Peel Sessions and the album demos pressed on two 180g black vinyl LPs. Again, this comes with new art from Vaughan Oliver which is different to the CD art. The download card included offers MP3s of the LP’s tracklisting plus the 7 bonus demo tracks.

Artist & Album Information:

There are some cult classics that could have been hits, and then there are albums like “Doolittle.”

Released 25 years ago, the sophomore effort from wily Boston space cadets Pixies was never going to shift major units, and the fact that it spent two weeks at No. 98 on the Billboard 200 is some kind of miracle. Sweet and melodic in spots, absolutely brutal in others, it’s the cryptic record about death and god that Black Flag and the Ventures might make should they ever find themselves on the same interstellar pleasure cruise. It’s brilliant, and it’s not for everyone. But in the pre-Nirvana alternative rock world of 1989, the album was heralded as a landmark -- a release that inspired and ultimately helped pave the way for a slew of bands that would become arena-filling, chart-topping megastars in the mid-'90s.

One guy who famously dug it was Kurt Cobain, and as Nirvana fans well know, the quiet-loud-quiet dynamic shifts found all over “Doolittle” set the template for much of “Nevermind.” Kurt’s affinity for this record has become a big part of its story, but the other subplots are just as interesting. In their prime, Pixies were like a freaky alt-rock version of the Fantastic Four, and here, their powers combine in some truly bizarre ways.

Up front, you’ve got Thing-like singer and rhythm guitarist Black Francis, a wordy, worldly bellower with apocalyptic visions and a colourful way of interpreting the Bible. To his right, there’s lead guitarist Joey Santiago, the Silver Surfer in search of new sounds to devour. Over there is bassist Kim Deal, the Not-Quite-Invisible Woman, whose plodding eighth notes and sugary background vocals give so many of these songs their much-needed smidgeon of prettiness. Behind her is Dave Lovering, a Human Torch of a drummer who secretly wants to sing groaner love ballads in airport bars. If “Doolittle” were a movie, it’d be a Marvel summer blockbuster directed by David Lynch. Thankfully, it’s an album—a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. – Billboard

“Doolittle is a mix of the band's earlier hardcore storms, Black Francis' self -described "stream of unconsciousness" rants, and the strange melodicism and surf-metal guitar that defined its creepy magic.” - Rolling Stone Top 500 Albums Of All Time

“There is little flab or room for negotiation with Doolittle, its 15 tracks could be released now and still wipe the floor of many of late noughties efforts. It's as perfect today as it was back then. Genuinely amazing.” -BBC

“It's hard to explain why Doolittle is perfect musically, but the devil is in the details. Doolittle's beauty is in its simplicity, from the droning bending of a single chord in the verses of "Dead" and the chorus of "I Bleed," to the four note bass line that opens the record, Doolittle's reserved arrangements was a much needed break from the larger than life musicality of the 1980s and the catalyst for indie rock in the nineties.” - Sputnik Music
