As previously announced, Fire Records are re-issuing Pigbag’s albums this year.

The first release is “Pigbag Volume 1 – Dr Heckle and Mr Jive“.
This consist of 2xCD:

  • “Dr Heckle and Mr Jive” album
  • 7″ and 12″ versions of “Papa’s Got A Brand New Pigbag” plus B-sides
  • 7″ and 12″ versions of “Sunny Day” plus B-sides
  • 12″ of “Getting Up” plus B-sides (7″ version is on Dr Heckle and Mr Jive anyway)
  • 12″ of “Big Bean” plus B-side

The second release is “Pigbag Volume 2 – Lend An Ear + Pigbag Live

This consists of 2xCD:
