Box sets can be great, sometimes you get a bonus disc with remastered music on it, sometimes a live concert that was previously unreleased. And sometimes you get this, the box set of box sets, especially if you are a fan of the Pixies. The upcoming Minotaur set is described best by the details of its contents…..
The Deluxe Edition will include all five Pixies studio albums – Come On Pilgrim (1987), Surfer Rosa (1988), Doolittle (1989), Bossanova (1990), and Trompe le Monde (1991) – on 24k layered CD and Blu-ray (five discs total), with reinterpreted artwork by Vaughan Oliver, the graphic designer who created all of the artwork that accompanied the Pixies’ studio albums. Also included in the Deluxe Edition will be a DVD of a Pixies 1991 performance at the Brixton Academy in London, the group’s videos, possible bonus tracks, and a 54-page book, all housed in a custom slipcase.
The Minotaur Limited Edition version will include everything in the Deluxe Edition, as well as all five albums on 180 gram vinyl, an Giclee print of Oliver’s artwork, and a 72-page hardcover book, all housed in an oversized custom clamshell cover.
