4AD reissues two Cocteau Twins albums on vinyl, following on from the recent reissues of 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 vinyl pressings also come with limited time 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 bands 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 youd find buried in these songs, and a verb for what youd do with them for years to come."
