They Might Be Giants' first album, often called "the pink album," is celebrating it's 33 1/3 birthday, and Idlewild Recordings is marking the occasion with a fully remastered vinyl re-issue. Long out of print in any physical format, this vinyl pressing has been a labor of love. Remastered by UE Nastasi at Sterling Sound, pressed on 180g colored vinyl LP, these 2000 discs are hand-numbered and include the full original lyric sheet.

19 unforgettable tracks that portend the lo-fi movement that would come to define much of the alternative music scene, these are the songs that started it all. Recorded by the band in their apartments on 4-track, as well as 8-track at Studio PASS, and working after hours through the benevolence of producer Bill Krauss and engineer Alex Noyes, the disc was finally completed at Al Houghton's Dubway Studios in the legendary (and hellish) Music Building off of Times Square.

Originally released on the Hoboken label Bar/None, this album is TMBG's musical mission statement, packed with unforgettable songs and sounds including "Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head," "Don't Let's Start," "Number Three," "32 Footsteps," and "Youth Culture Killed My Dog."
