Doot-Doot is the debut studio album by Freur and was released in 1983.[3] The cassette version of the album included four extra tracks.

CD release[edit]

The album was unavailable on CD until the 1993 reissue by Oglio Records in the United States. The album has since been reissued twice in the United Kingdom, in 2000 by Columbia Records and subsequently in 2009 by Cherry Red Records as Get Us out of Here/Doot-Doot — which includes both Freur albums on one CD.[3]
