The Pixies
"Best of: Wave of Mutilation"(Vinyl)

Originally released in 2004, this best-of compilation found its way onto vinyl and into a record store in South Dakota by 2011.  That's when I purchased it.

Now yes, I was already familiar with the Pixies (I believe I already owned a copy of "Surfer Rosa") but I sensed there was more to plumb from the depths of this band.

It really is a good compilation; having since acquired most of the Pixies' seminal albums, I've decided there is plenty in their output that I don't need.  If inquired, I think I would push inquisitive minds towards two albums.  1988's "Surfer Rosa" (which I still think is brilliant) and this best-of collection.
