Oh wait, after all that, forgot to note that I wish this compilation had No. 13 Baby on it, but it doesn’t so I guess I have to now go drop the big bucks on the MoFi Doolittle after all.

This is one of the best sounding records in my collection. If you’re even a casual fan of Pixies it’s well worth the sticker price of (usually) under $30. Maybe there’s a negative stigma out there around vinyl reissues of Greatest Hits compilations from the 90s and 00s that were originally issued on CD. So if you were flipping past this thinking you’ll one day splurge and drop the 200 quid on MoFi pressings of Surfer Rosa, Doolittle and Bossa Nova, my advice is just buy this for now and start enjoying these tunes again right away. Life’s too short, and your hearing’s the first thing to ‘go’, sadly. Chances are you’ve got a much better setup for sound now than you did when your buddy taped these albums for you in 92 and you played the shit out of it on your Sanyo shelf-saver mini-system with auto rewind. I’m ranting now. 5 stars for the folks at 4AD on this pressing.

The original CD had a version of Hey that was truncated. Stores were shipped new versions of the CD within weeks and the new one had a sticker stating that it "includes 'Hey" Full Length Version'. Everything else was the same (barcode etc) as the first print.

Both should be orange, my copy is. Seems like they had more they had more orange copies of the 2nd disc pressed.
