New Pure Audio Blu-Ray of Classic Pixies Album featuring Both 5.1 Surround Sound Remix & Original Album!
The Pixies' 1989 sophomore record, Doolittle, remains among the best and most important albums ever made and its accolades are endless. Chock full with violent surrealism, religious symbolism, and a head-spinning range of material that encompasses atomic pop, theatrical country and western, abrasive post-punk, and giddy surf rock, the record is a synthesis of contagious tunefulness and linguistic wit with fits of romance, humor, and glee balancing the addictively fun narratives of now-standard tunes such as "Here Comes Your Man," "Debaser," and "Monkey Gone to Heaven."
A first for both the band and 4AD, Doolittle is being released as a Pure Audio Blu-ray which contains both the album in high definition (96 kHz / 24 bit) 5.1 surround sound - having been remixed by audio specialist Kevin Vanbergen (FX) from the original analogue multi-tracks - and a HD transfer of the original stereo mix by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. The results are a revelation, separating out elements from the recordings that are buried in the stereo mix and adding space, depth and a clarity to the performances without diluting their energy and impact. In other words it's an absolute must for all Pixies fans.
