Post-modern Alternative Rock begins here! the Pixies may not have scaled the top of the charts during their existence, but without them, the Alternative scene wouldn't exist as we know it. This CD features their first two releases on one disc: 1987's Come on Pilgrim (their debut mini-album) plus Surfer Rosa, their first full-length album from 1988 These releases excited and influenced a new generation of fans, some of whom would go on to form some the bands responsible for turning the music business upside down in the '90s (most notably, Nirvana). 22 tracks in all, including 'Gigantic',' Bone Machine', 'Where Is My Mind?', 'Cactus', 'Vamos' (both versions), 'Isla de Encanta', 'I've Been Tired', 'Tony's Theme' and more. Also contains the original 'topless Italian prostitute cover art from 'Surfer Rosa'. 4AD.
