Pavement | REWIG12 | Released: 01/11/04
A deluxe, extended version of the classic indie rock album that propelled the band to the forefront of mass consciousness. Most of you will know Crooked Rain Crooked Rain. Those who don't know it will soon enough get to know it, in-depth! For fans, this double-disc set is a must-have. You only dream of such releases, right? The exquisite package will be a double CD housed in an embossed, die-cut slipcase, with a 64 page perfect-bound book containing never before-seen photos, posters, setlists, ephemera and essays by the band. The CDs contain the original 12 songs, plus an additional 37 tracks, many of which have never been heard before, including 13 studio outtakes and 12 b-sides. There is also a Peel session from the time, and a fantastic early version of the album with original drummer Gary Young.
