Between 1992 and 1999, Pavement released five albums, each adored and cherished for different reasons. However, in the process of recording each record, there were many tracks that fell by the wayside, as will happen when making music. These songs would be released as B-Sides or EPs, much later on deluxe reissues, or never be heard at all. Now, Domino Records is collecting these rarities for a series of “shadow records” beginning with the August 11th release of The Secret History, Vol. 1.
Featuring material recorded around the time of Pavement’s 1992 debut, Slanted and Enchanted, Vol. 1 packs 30 tracks over two vinyl LPs. Included are rarities from the Japanese version of Slanted (“So Stark (You’re A Skyscraper)”, “Sue Me Jack), alternate takes (“Here”, “Summer Babe”), and unused John Peel sessions (“Kentucky Cocktail”, “Ed Ames”). There’s also a 13-song live performance from London featuring Mark Ibold and Bob Nastanovich recorded in 1992.
