When Cocteau Twins arrived in the Post-Punk New Wave trend back in the waning days of the ’70s, it was with an original form that, while attempted, even today, could never be fully and satisfyingly replicated. This is fine for hard-core Cocteau Twins fans who pine for the thrillingly ethereal vocals of Elizabeth Fraser, and the otherworldy guitars of Robin Guthrie, all rounded by, first Will Heggie (for Garland – 1982), then more fully by Simon Raymonde for the rest of the Cocteau Twins catalog. There are no disappointing Cocteau Twins releases. Not in my estimation, at least.
On March 16, the unique and expressive 4AD label will reissue two extraordinary CT titles on vinyl LP, both wih brand new remasters for better sonic purity. And for Cocteau Twins, that can only be appreciated and embraced.
The two CT albums being reissued on vinyl are Treasure (1984), and Head Over Heels (1983). Both albums will be repressed on 180g-weigh black vinyl. Both will supply download DD codes. As a bonus, both titles will be made available as HD Audio DD for separate purchase.
You’re welcome CT fans.
