Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa is a forthcoming 30th anniversary deluxe edition that brings together Pixies‘ eight-track mini-album Come On Pilgrim and the band’s full-length album Surfer Rosa.
Come On Pilgrim was originally issued in September 1987, its eight tracks taken (in remixed form) from the so-called Purple Tape (which contained 17 early demos). Six months later the influential debut album proper, Surfer Rosa, was issued. This includes Where Is My Mind?, which was memorably featured right at the end of David Fincher’s 1999 film, Fight Club.
This anniversary release is a three disc set, since Live From The Fallout Shelter – a very early radio concert that first aired in late 1986 on on WJUL-FM in Lowell, MA – is included as a bonus disc. The 15-song performance includes most of Come On Pilgrim performed live a long time before it was released.
3LP gold vinyl package
Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa is available as a three-CD set in casebound hardcover book presentation (with lyric booklet) or a 3LP package, which includes GOLD coloured vinyl records housed in a wide-spined sleeve and a download card. Vaughan Oliver, the longtime Pixies designer, reinterprets his original artwork
Both of these are scheduled for release in September, but 4AD are offering a limited edition deluxe 3LP edition which is pressed on CLEAR vinyl and comes in a clothbound hardcover book and features a lyric book and art book. This will be released ‘later in 2018’ and can only be ordered direct from the band’s website. It’s around double the cost of the standard 3LP set.
Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa will be issued on 28 September 2018.
