Just to reiterate I won’t be including each and every compilation album here. If for example it is a CD that just includes a random Sebadoh album cut as part of a soundtrack or something dull like that then life is too short and even I am not that obsessive (No judgement if you are!). There are other sites that have been pretty thorough with this level of depth and if you want that you should check out Underwater Now or of course Sebadoh and Suchlike.

Scars 4 Eyes
The Lounge Ax Defense and Relocation Compact Disc – CD – Touch & Go – 1997
Fantastic compilation with an amazing selection of bands. June of 44, Shellac, Guided by Voices, Yo La Tengo and the Rachel’s to name but a few. I don’t believe they saved the Lounge Ax but a noble effort and a fantastically rocking track from Sebadoh.
The XFM Live Sessions – CD – Select – 1999
I was not sure if I should include this or not as it is a magazine freebie and features some awful dross such as the Stereophonics and Travis however the Sebadoh cover of Cold as Ice to me is an absolutely fantastic track, if not hugely cheesy. But I don’t care as its a great tune so here it is. As the name suggests the tracks came from XFM’s session vaults.
