RIGHT before my favorite album, Sister, would have been next to up. I mean... what the heck happened? I devoured every reissues from Dirty to Daydream, and appreciated the hell out of each one. But why only those three in deluxe, double album format?

This is not something that has to remain unaccomplished. Deluxe reissues of all the albums would be really nice. If lesser bands like R.E.M. and the Cure and the Flaming Lips can do it, why can't SY?

Goddammit. The day the Dirty deluxe version became available, I thought, "wow cool... no rhyme or reason to why they're starting with Dirty, but as long as I eventually get Sister, etc. I'll be a happy camper."

It is hard to say why did they stopped issuing deluxe editons of their albums. I would love to see some WM deluxe version. can they pull something related to their albums which were not "deluxed" yet from their vaults and it is not live stuff? I think they could.

but even stuff (Screamin Fields Of Sonic Love DVD and also two 80ties documentaries /according to Brian from WFMU who is doing liner notes for it/) planned to go for release next went on idle for some reason.

hard to say. probably busy with other stuff.

Yeah, WM was another one I was really looking forward to.

Also, the promised pre-major label sequel to Corporate Ghost. Lots of dropped balls now that I think about it.

It may be a label thing. Reissues stoped around the time they signed to Matador, right? But Matador had a penchant for deluxe re-issues as well (Pavement). Either way, some of their albums need a more comprehensive archival re-release, like what VU did, or what Nirvana did. Certainly there's enough demand to make it worth it.

imagine if one of those two 80ties documentaries Brian Turner is reffering to would be Evol tour film. that would be crazy.

by the way I might write him and ask him what exactly those two docs. are about.

Who knows dude, could be myriad reasons. No enthusiasm from Geffen to do it, lack of archival recordings pre-1988. Don't know the sales figures from the previous reissues, but maybe Geffen figured they nailed the three most well-known/popular albums and they got other fish to fry. Sucks for us hardcore fans.

I want to see more archival live releases a la Live at Smart Bar personally. The fact the band isn't active anymore also probably contributes to a lack of enthusiasm and energy for more releases.

When they were active I got so used to a near annual release of some sort. I wish archival stuff was so constant.

I prefer the expanded deluxe reissues to the little archival releases that come with nothing but a gatefold cover and a track list. Nothing against Spinhead Sessions, but it was just a disc and cardboard. I'd rather have a Beatles Anthology-esque collection of exhaustively annotated alternate takes and rare tracks, with a fatass booklet to obsess about and pour over endlessly.

I'd be happy with more of either or both. Smart Bar was amazing for just cardboard and disc.

EJS&NS would have been an amazing reissue. It's such an obscure release of theirs but I would have liked to have seen it given a re-release. Sweet Shine is one of my top favorites.

Washing Machine would be killer

"Sweet Shine" is one of my top favorites too! Part of a long tradition of killer Kim closers. "Massage the History" feels like a spiritual sequel to that song in my mind.

I agree. That would make a hell of a reissue. It's a GOOD album. You can hear the future of "edgy" alternative in those tracks. Beck, Blur, Modest Mouse... I think EJST&NS is due for a revival. It brought the art back. And the noise. And the pop, somehow. It (and Dirty) are the logical predecessors to what the band would later refine on Rather Ripped, and I'm glad they returned to that sound.

ESJ is a fascinating album to me. The band toured with Pavement and Sebadoh - who were no doubt inspired by Sonic Youth - and then SY went and recorded this album sort of inspired by those sounds. It's like... I don't know. There must be a scientific word here. I want to say mobius strip but not really.

When they announced the deluxe reissues i think the plan was for those 3 only from the start. I think one of the band members said later it was whatever label's idea and the label only wanted to do those 3.

A deluxe sister would be nice though.
