A Deep Dive into Cautionary Tales

Spanning the band’s illustrious career, Cautionary Tales: Jukebox Classiques packs 56 tracks across 18 vinyl singles. The collection traces back to Pavement’s very roots with songs from their 1989 debut EP, Slay Tracks, released under Treble Kicker. It doesn’t stop there; the set brings to light alternate versions of “Black Out” and “Extradition,” tracks offered exclusively to those who pre-ordered the Wowee Zowee (Sordid Sentinels Edition) back in 2006.
