Nice sounding extras collection from the Slanted and Enchanted era. Wish it had Texas Never Whispers, but it has some good ones. No Luxe and Redux on vinyl.

Received my copy today (August 1, 2015). The quality of this pressing is amazing. Matador's 180 gram discs are usually top notch, and this one does not disappoint.

This reissue series is a great idea, and I'm especially looking forward to Volume 2, with all the great tracks that are on CR, CR: LA's Desert Origins. But I wonder if they'll go all the way to Volume 4, considering that Brighten the Corners: Nicene Credence Edition actually was released on vinyl, unlike the rest of the 2-CD Pavement reissues.

I also wonder, will we ever get a Terror Twilight reissue? If we do, it seems unlikely that it will be such a treasure trove as the others in the series, due to a lack of rare material in that era. Most (all?) of the b-sides from the Terror Twilight singles already appeared on Nicene Credence Edition, as that's the era when they were actually recorded.
