The Pixies Bossanova Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid Stereo SACD
This item not eligible for any further discount offers!
The analog masters for Bossanova have been missing for 18 years and were
located recently in the WEA tape archives in L.A. This will be the first time
the original 1/2" analog master tapes were used since Bossanova's original
release in 1990.
Released on August 13, 1990, Bossanova was the Pixies' 3rd release and was their
second time collaborating with independent English producer Gil Norton. The
album departed from the "unpredictable" signature sound of the Pixies and is
considered their first anthemic project. All the original songwriting on
Bossanova is by leader Black Francis (Frank Thompson), who ultimately reveals
his twisted interpretation of surf music combined with his fascination of aliens
and UFOs. The end result is Bossanova, often described as a surf-space rock
album that touched upon new heights for the Pixies.
