Happy to see the praise heaped on the live version of Best Thing You Never Had, good as the album version is, live is a whole different beast.

The longer mix is OK, the Remix Jam would have gone on a bit too long for the album breaking the flow too much, and if I'm not misremembering, it also starts with Sunny Day Real Estate

Gotta start at the beginning and listen to all of his stuff. Only heard the past few albums but I really like them and have been a fan since Sycamore Meadows. Should I bother with anything pre-Marvelous 3?
There's some good stuff on the Floyds and Floyds Funk Revival album, but nothing I'd go questing after till after you've already heard all the solo/Marvelous 3/1969 stuff. Definitely hardcore fan space

Everything you said about "Mixtape" is pretty spot on. That was also the first Butch song I heard. I haven't listened to this full album in a while and I definitely will be revisiting it this afternoon. The emotion in each of these songs gets me each and every time.

For as much as I love this record I've never gotten too much in to his other stuff. I know a few Marvelous 3 songs and like them and I have I Liked You Better When You Had No Heart and really like a few songs but it hasn't hit me in the same way.
If Letters is your thing, the next one you may want to try is Sycamore Meadows. Your thought on I Liked It Better... seem to mirror those of a lot of the other commenters here. Good, but not as great as the rest of his stuff, so I wouldn't let that deter you too much
