I have always heard B+S spoken well of, but pretty much only in indie rock circles which can be kinda stuffy and closed-minded, so I didn't know to put much stock in it. I figured I'd give them a shot when the opportunity presented itself instead of going out of my way. That day came when I saw this box set at a retail store "going out of business sale" and I snapped it up for 4 bucks.
OK- a few things here: best 4 bucks I've spent in a LONG time. I would have gladly paid more than full price for this sucker had I know how great it was. Also, I'm SO angry at myself for waiting so long to get to know this great music! The EP set is only the tip of the iceberg, as they have four or five full-lengths, but I so admire their dedication to the EP format. Each of these (and Jonathan David, which I also got and strongly recommend!) have their own character and flavor.
Major highlight is "Lazy Line Painter Jane" which is the kind of song that could have ruled the airwaves back when Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High" was a miserable failure. It reaches such orgasmic heights of Phil Specto-rama, with layer upon layer of sound building and building (AND BUILDING AND BUILDING) around the duet between Stewart and the soulful white girl Monica White. The lyrics are vague in a Stewart kind of way, with enough evocative references to "boys" and "girls" who's lives are potentially altered by the "last bus out of town" to make you buy into this grandiose drama of human feeling without knowing exactly what the hell is going on (Dylan-esque? Yes!) It's a total geek-out! And I just LOVE how that bass line recenters the focus after the first verse, breaks it all down and then builds it back up! You da man, Stewart!

I am from Manhattan and one day as I was in a chain record store, another person and I started chatting about music (these things happen all the time in Manhattan). It turned out that both of us were HUGE Belle & Sebastian fans (the lucky sod owned an ORIGINAL copy of "Tigermilk"--I almost mugged him there on the spot! These things happen all the time in Manhattan...LOL. Not really.). When he heard how much I love B&S, he literally dragged me over to the cd singles section and thrust the three original import singles at me and said, "Do yourself a favor." As I didn't even KNOW that B&S had issued the singles at the time (it had been a difficult year), I immediately ran, debit card in hand, to the register and then sat impatiently at work the rest of the day until I could get home and thrust these into the cd player. And then promptly hit the repeat button. My favorite of these three absolutely wonderful, tuneful, whimsical, perfect cd single bonbons is "3...6...9...Seconds of Light" (he preferred "Dog on Wheels" I remember), but all of them are ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSIBLE. And then I think how lucky all you people out there can be to get ALL THREE at one time without having to pay import prices and want to drag you--or your mouse--to the "Put this in my shopping cart" button so you can bliss out yourselves. Now if you will pardon me, I need to hit that repeat button again...

Belle and Sebastian have been making great pop music for nearly a decade now, and some of their best work isn't on any studio album. You'll find great gems like "Lazy Line Painter Jane" and "The State I Am In" on this set, but why stop there? You could pay $18 for this box set. But there's a better option now.

A new 2 disc set has surfaced, thanks to Matador. It's called PUSH BARMAN TO OPEN OLD WOUNDS, and it contains all these songs and more for a cheaper price. If you're looking for non-album tracks from Scotland's best band, I'd say the decision is a no-brainer. Buy PUSH BARMAN instead - it's the price of a single disc album, and you get 25 tracks from all EP's 1997-2001. What a deal.

Tis I. The one, the only, the music fan from Ponca City, Oklahoma. If there's one review I regret, it is my anonymous review of the 'Lazy Line Painter Jane' box, and so I shall now re-review it, ep by ep. Dog on Wheels: The first of the three, this really, really sounds like just a demo tape, but it's a fantastic demo tape. From the looseness of the 'Belle and Sebastian', to the near-flamenco guitar part of 'String Bean Jean', from the spanish tinge of 'Dog on Wheels', to the alternate version of 'State I Am In', this is a great ep, and worth the price of all three if you ask me.
Lazy Line Painter Jane: This one is really the odd one out. The first song is one of my least favorite Belle and Sebastian songs out there. It's not that it's too long or anything (past the five minute mark), it's just that the lead singer in the song is a guest vocalist and her voice clashes with the music. The next song is 'You Made Me Forget My Dreams', which is one of the saddest and sweetest songs Stuart Murdoch ever wrote. The third song on the ep is 'Photo Jenny'. It is very poppy (think 'Mayfly') and very silly and very Belle and Sebastian. The last track is a Stuart David pre-Looper song in which he speaks of his wife, his father, and his cat named Elvis. Very funny and very sweet, this is my favorite track on 'Jane'.
3...6...9 Seconds of Light: This ep is the reason I am re-writing this review. I terribly misjudged it the first time around and now it is time to set things straight. This is my favorite of the three eps, hands down. The first song is 'Century of Fakers' (which is 'Century of Elvis' minus Stuart David's story and with Stuart Murdoch's vocals in the foreground), and it is a great, great song.
