Or just the continuation of the SYR series, but more as an archival series. I always prefer a record with a clear theme, rather than random compilations such as The Destroyed Bedroom.. (Though that one has Blink..)
If SY needs help in compiling, I could help with that. :-D
Is the “Secret History of Pavement” thing just the second disc of the 2000s reissues, released on its own? Like, Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe” disc 2, “Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: LA’s Desert Origins” disc 2, etc.?
I’d rather just have both discs. Projects that are started should be completed.
I’d take what you’re suggesting over nothing, but I’d much rather get a big lovely gatefold cover and 34-page book about Sister with all the demos, b-sides, unreleased tracks, jams, etc. from the album tacked on to a remastered version of the album.
I’d be less pissed if they had made it through Sister before they stopped.
