Pixies to Celebrate ‘Doolittle’ 25th Anniversary with Deluxe Reissue


In honor of the 25th anniversary of their second studio album, Doolittle, the Pixies have announced plans to re-release the landmark album with a three-disc deluxe reissue. The reissue will include unreleased tracks, live performances, and much more.

If that isn’t enough to get Pixies fans excited for the anniversary which is would be considered the silver anniversary if this were a wedding anniversary, Doolittle 25 will also include two full sessions from John Peel’s BBC 1 Programs, a demo version of the album, six B-side tracks, and seven additional bonus tracks.

But like game show hosts say, “that’s not all.”

For those who are fans of vinyl, the band will be releasing a vinyl version of the deluxe reissue. This version will be a double vinyl which will include John Peel sessions and B-side tracks on one side, while the other side will contain the demo album as well as three bonus tracks.

Check out the full list of content for the anniversary reissue below.

R.E.M Reissuing ‘Green’ for 25th Anniversary


R.E.M’s sixth studio album, Green, will be getting the reissue treatment for its 25th anniversary. The new issue will feature two discs as well as a remastered version of the original album, a live disc selected from a November 10th, 1989 show in Greensboro, North Carolina and last but not least, the penultimate concert of the band’s massive 130-date Green World Tour.

Green: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be released on May 14 through Rhino Records both digitally and on CD.

Rhino Records also said that they will be releasing a limited-edition EP called Live in Greensboro which includes tracks that did not make it onto the reissue.  That album could be found at selected record stores on Record Store Day on April 20 which will include an original R.E.M. patch from the Green Tour that was recently found inside the band’s vault
