A Novel Method for the Removal of Extraneous Tracks from Pavement Reissue CDs
Introduction: Matador has reissued the first two Pavement records under the names Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe and Reduxe and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: L.A.'s Desert Origins . These new editions contain second CDs brimming with unreleased studio and live tracks. Unfortunately, many of these tracks are distracting ear contaminants. The purpose of the current study was to develop a method of distilling out the rockingest and most satisfying tracks from these reissues. If successful, the method would be extended to the Rhapsody-available Pavement EPs as well.
Materials and Methods: Pavement reissue filler and EP bonus tracks were passed through a fine aural sieve. The larger sounds were captured and arrayed pleasantly in a playlist for closer observation. Of note, Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe contains a full live show from Brixton Academy in London on December 14, 1992. This entire show is excellent and was excluded from the current study (however, it merits thorough repeated investigation by anyone with an interest in the subject).
