About this item
Back in 1986, ‘The Pink Opaque’ brought together the best of the Cocteau Twins’ early works to become their first official release in the US.
Already a cult band on college radio, some classics like ‘Pearly-Dewdrops’ Drops’ and ‘Aikea-Guinea’ were given new mixes for this release, while it also featured ‘Millimillenary’, the first run out for incoming band member Simon Raymonde.
To this day, ‘The Pink Opaque’ remains a great entry point to a wonderful band.
Using new masters created from high definition files transferred from the original analogue tapes, the album is a 180g vinyl pressing complete with download code.
David says: The blueprint for pretty much every band I was in at school, right down to the ozone depleting level of hairspray.
