COCTEAU TWINS Treasure LP
4AD are repressing two more Cocteau Twins records on vinyl in March of 2018, the albums Head Over Heels and Treasure. These are the latest additions to the label's ongoing reissues from the band, following Blue Bell Knoll, Heaven or Las Vegas, Tiny Dynamine / Echoes In A Shallow Bay and The Pink Opaque. Using new masters created from high definition files transferred from the original analogue tapes, both albums are being pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl and come with download codes.
The band returned to being a trio in 1984 with guitarist Simon Raymonde joining their ranks in time for third album, Treasure. Produced by Robin Guthrie and featuring tracks "Lorelei," "Ivo" and "Persephone," Treasure is often celebrated as one of the band's finest works. As Pitchfork put it when including the album in their Top 100 Albums of the 1980s, "Treasure was titled simply enough. An adjective for the endlessly inventive melodic lines you'd find buried in these songs, and a verb for what you'd do with them for years to come."
