      So good. I’ve loved Pavement from the beginning. This is a great version and I assume pretty close to what a first edition sounds like (since the mastering and pressing are the same). Back in the day words like “lo fi” and “slacker” were used to describe the band and sound. Now I realize those were just lazy ways of trying to describe something that sounded a little different and was new-ish. It might also have had something to do with the original cassette and CD, both of which I had, and which (in my opinion) weren’t really bettered by remastering (of either the CD or record). But this early repress seems to let the light in and around the instruments. Clearly they were after a certain sound. They were, I think, working the studio and trying to transfer their energy to the LP. They succeeded. Aaah, the drumming. Those guitars and bass. Topped off by S.M’s often abstract lyrics. Wonderful.

        A pretty good pressing. Not as lively as the OG, but it is a newer pressng. Still pretty good, no pops and crackles (did clean it with my VC first) and pretty quiet between tracks.

          Two songs on this tape, "My First Mine" and "Baptist Blackticks," don't appear on the original album. They were recorded during the same sessions in Stockton, CA in 1991 and subsequently appeared on Westing (by Musket and Sextant). Also, this cassette release doesn't include "Conduit For Sale!" or "Zurich Is Stained."
          This a unique version of the album. Yes, it's an easy to re-create one, using tracks already available elsewhere, but it's not merely a re-sequencing of what ended up being released as Slanted And Enchanted.

          Some song title notes, many of which are obvious.
          "Chesley's Lil' Wrists" = "Chesley's Little Wrists"
          "Jackals Of The Lonesome Era" = "Jackals, False Grails: The Lonesome Era"
          "Trigger Cut" and "The Wounded Kite" are split apart instead of appearing together as "Trigger Cut / Wounded-Kite At :17"
          "Fame Thrower" = "Fame Throwa"
          "Pain Smiles" = "In The Mouth A Desert"
          "Perfume Veins, Etc" = "Perfume-V"
          "Loretta's Scars" time is incorrectly listed as 2:00. I timed it at 2:47 on my machine, much closer to the original release.
          "Pillowjack" = "Our Singer"

            Disc 2 and the included booklet makes this deluxe edition worth owning. Disc 2 has an additional set of watery tracks which are quite good, including So Stark. Disc 2 also has a live set from 1992 with unreleased tracks that really captures them at this time, early, not too polished, perhaps nervous, and some unheard of gems. Disc 1 has a few additional tracks from John Peel which are good, but in my opinion are overshadowed by the highlights of Disc 2.

              This is a great pressing. My copy borders on dead silent between tracks. A couple minor pops/clicks/rumbles total per side if I am being extremely nitpicky. Mine is very slightly dish warped, almost not worth even mentioning. The color/splatter looks great. This blows away the 2015 re-issue I had.

              I highly recommend this.

                Sounds great outside of some pops and surface noise. One of the cooler looking records I own.

                  Also came with a UK price sheet for mail order of other Pavement releases.

                    Perfectly fine way to listen to the album. The record itself looks amazing but there is some surface noise.

                      I don't have any original vinyl releases of Pavement but I have all those 2015 RTI reissues as well as 2019 BTC box. Among all those, Slanted and Enchanted sounds best to my ears. I can even pick 2015 one as one of those good sounding records. Even though no one look for an audiophile quality from Pavement. that 2015 RTI pressing of this album sounds that great. IMHO the great Kevin Gray couldn't make CRCR sound great as much as Jay Ranos did this to album.
                      I pick this anniversary edition not expecting much but for a collectability.
                      It sounds ok. Nothing wrong but nothing special. 2015 RTI pressing sounds superior. 2015 pressing has more details and fits into the "attitude" of this album. that saying I still feel the roughness and rawness of the album from 2015 but this one sounds bit clean and taint the essence of the album.
                      As I mentioned before this anniversary edition has its own virtue as a special issue with a matching color. SQ isn't bad and PQ is acceptable. Personally the color doesn't look that great :(

                      btw I don't see any innergrove distortion or something from 2015 RTI unlike one of reviewers mentioned.

                      the only gripe is to Matador label, please stop messing around with all those metal parts you've already had. Pavement catalog have been reissued and repressed several times lately. but no one knows which metal parts used unless unsealed and checked. Some of those used the different lacquer cut for different sides. Matador should do something better for this anniversary edition other than making a gimmicky color variation. at least Matador could use the 2015 cut and pressed at RTI for anniversary.

                        strangely, it says "1991" on the labels, while the original album was released in 1992...
