Some Pixies remastered CD's were released today, and I was thinking about picking up "Doolittle" in particular. Can anyone who has the remastered version tell me if the sound quality is worth an upgrade over the previous edition?

According to this Pitchfork story, these are pretty much the same old releases. 4AD's contract with Elektra has ran out so they're just releasing them on their own label. Still I'm looking forward to that DVD in September!

I'm sort of relieved it's more CD's I don't have to buy. That DVD sounds good.

They aren't remastered, just rereleased under a different label. Even the artwork is identical.

I did notice the identical artwork at the store, and also that there was nothing promoting the fact that it (and the other Pixies re-releases) was remastered; apparently they aren't. Thanks, Tony.

Like Ike, I too am relieved that it's more CD's I don't have to buy. Posted Image

Yeah me too. In fact, when they were announced, I was ready to immediately dump my old set. Glad I waited for a more definitive word. That DVD's gonna be amazing, though!
