Pet Shop Boys release Catalogue: 1985-2012, a very special series of reissues of all their studio albums released on Parlophone. This definitive edition features each album from the duo’s peerless discography on the label, remastered and released with additional ‘Further listening’ albums of bonus tracks, demos and mixes created in the same period of time as each album. Many tracks are being released for the first time. Each album is accompanied by an extensive booklet in which Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe discuss each song, illustrated with many archive photographs. The entire project is designed by Farrow.
