In this 2-disc set you get a remastered version of Slanted and enchanted a few choice cut singles from the pre-matador sessions, a couple of alternate studio out-takes from the Slanted Era, the first John Peel sessions, the Watery Domestic EP, the song 'Greenlander' from the I Shot Andy Warhol soundtrack, the b sides from all singles released during that era, an entire concert from the Brixton Academy, and to top it all off you get an incredible packaging job w/original art work and incredible set of liner notes full of pictures and anecdotes from the band and those that were there. All I can say is that I'm an old time Pavement fan and I pretty much already own this stuff from bootlegs, and through tracking down singles and various other compilations. For the most part all of the material compiled is A+ material except for maybe the two studio outtakes and the repeat of Summer Babe 7" version I found to be a little redundant as I can't even notice a difference from the original. The early pre-Slanted singles (Mercy Snack: The Laundromat, B.Blackstick, and My First Mine) may all sound a little too primitive to the uninitiated ear and fit best on the Westing By Musket and Sextant compilation. Outside of that you have an incredible album, with some of the funnest and wittiest songs to come out of the 90's. It's a classic album that spear headed the indie rock revolution. I believe that over time this band will fall right behind Nirvana is the most influential band to come out of the 90's (they've already left those nature kids STP and S.Pumpkins in the dust).

Pavement was the reigning indie band of the 1990s, with their vibrant rock and Stephen Malkmus's deliciously strange lyrics. And at the 10th anniversary of debut "Slanted and Enchanted"'s release, devoted fans were rewarded with "Slanted and Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe," with a wealth of live tracks, new tracks, B-sides and more.
The original recording itself is a masterful creation: its includes the whooping "Life Singed Her," intricate "Trigger Cut/Wounded-Kite At :17," droning "In the Mouth of a Desert," gently poppy "Zürich Is Stained" and jangling, shimmering "Loretta's Scars," before wrapping up with the solid acoustic "Our Singer."
But no sooner has the rat-a-tat percussion of "Our Singer" faded out than the new stuff begins: The "Slanted Sessions," which include the droning "Mercy Snack: The Laundromat," the catchy rocker "Baptist Blacktick," a rawer, rougher alternate mix of "Here," and the shimmery indie "Nothing Ever Happens" (which sounds a bit like the Beatles). The first disc fades out with the John Peel Session #1 -- which has never been released before -- four fuzzy, solid renditions of their songs.
The second disc is almost as good, kicking off with the Watery, Domestic tracks: the ear-tingling feedback that opens "Texas Never Whispers," the sweeping "Frontwards," and the poppy "Shoot the Singer (1 Sick Verse)." The Watery Sessions are on a somewhat grimmer note with the melancholy "Greenlander," the gothic-sounding "Sue Me Jack," and the drizzly "So Stark (You're A Skyscraper).

If you're just getting into Pavement, and haven't already heard much of the stuff on this disc - buy it. It has some of the best music ever made. For those who have been down the road with the boys, though, and are wary of paying twice for the same songs - your concerns are justfied.
On the plus side, the sound quality of the Peel Sessions is better than on the (awesome, near-canonical) "Stuff Up the Cracks" bootleg. It's great that, at last, there's a legitimate way to own these songs. They're some of Pavement's best ever, and finally they're accessible (and affordable) to everyone.
Unfortunately, so much other great stuff remains exclusively on "Cracks," including the third Peel Session (from a few years later), that the bootleg will remain mighty tempting to new listeners - which sort of defeats this set's "beat the boots" purpose. (If you want the tinny live stuff on disc 2, better I guess to get it this way than on "Stray Slack.") Presumably, the "Crooked Rain"-era stuff will see official release when THAT album gets the reissue treatment on its 10th anniversary.
But this gets to the core of the problem: beyond the profit motive, why bother? What the world needed was a single, excellent Pavement rarities set. The mighty "S&E" is cheapened (if such a thing is possible) when it's slapped carelessly on a disc with one Peel Session and the few weak tracks from the (must-have) Drag City early years CD. (Just because "Mercy Snack" and "My First Mine" are from the "Slanted sessions" doesn't mean they should show up here.) I don't care how great the LP - it's going to lose its punch when, right after its final note is struck, it's followed up by a reprise of its very first track (in a basically identical "7-inch version"). Blech!
