Pixies - Rough Diamonds

Another studio bootleg: The Pixies - Rough Diamonds, Studio Sessions 1987-1991. It's nice to start this blog off with all my favorite artists (Waits, Frusciante, Pumpkins, etc). The Pixies have also been very inspiring to me and I kept on listening to them since I discovered them around 1990. I'm proud to have seen them live in 1991 and two times after they reunited. Although I love all their albums, Surfer Rosa is the one that I like the most. Everything is there: the fantastic songs, the craziness, the "spanish" lyrics, Kim Deal's voice and the fantastic production (sorry Steve: recordings) by Steve Albini. 
This bootleg is widely available on the internet, but I still want to post it here 'cause it's great. Studio recordings throughout all their years of existence and one new song: Born In Chicago. This is the track list:
