Pixies and 4AD celebrate the 25th anniversary of the seminal Doolittle with the release of Pixies: Doolittle 25 - an expanded edition of the classic album that brings together all the album's B-sides, Peel Sessions and demos for the first time, with nearly half of the tracks having not been commercially released before.

The second studio album from Pixies - Black Francis, Joey Santiago, Kim Deal and David LoveringDoolittle was to prove a pivotal moment for both band and the wider scene. Produced by Gil Norton and recorded between two studios (Downtown Recorders in Boston MA and Carriage House Studios in Stamford CT) in late-1988, it was an instant hit, containing some of the band's most memorable singles (Monkey Gone To Heaven, Here Comes Your Man and Debaser).

Included among the many plaudits thrown Doolittle's way was Pitchfork ranking 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.

Pressed as a 2LP 180gram black vinyl set, with gatefold cover - the first disc contains six B-sides and two full Peel Sessions and the second disc being the album in complete demo form plus 3 bonus tracks. A download card is included, offering access to all LP tracks plus four more bonus tracks.

Like all other Pixies sleeves before it, Vaughan Oliver returns as designer, stunningly reinterpreting his original artwork and Simon Larbalestier's photographs to create two stunning new sleeves using metallic ink.
