The Pixies’ 1989 sophomore release remains among the best and most important albums ever made. Q magazine declared the rock landmark as one of the 100 Greatest Albums Ever. Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain cited it as a primary influence. Rolling Stone placed Doolittle high on its prestigious 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. 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.
Mobile Fidelity is proud to honor this distinguished effort with a sonic treatment that presentsDoolittle as it was always meant to be heard: On 180-gram vinyl that allows every nuance to shine. Sourced from the original master tapes, this version offers see-through resolution thatyields unrivaled clarity, vibrant immediacy, stunning transparency, and tonal punch. Yes, this puts the recently reissued standard vinyl edition from 4AD to shame.
