But, Soundgarden fans will be drooling over the "Deluxe" and "Super Deluxe" editions of the album. Beginning with the "Deluxe" version, the original album is joined by a second CD filled with demos, rehearsals and rare b-sides. The stripped down versions of their hits "Black Hole Sun" and "The Day I Tried To Live" shows the band's process in layering sounds as they are in different forms of completion. The really enjoyable tracks on the second disc are the hard-to-find b-sides, the punk-like appeal of "Kyle Petty, Son Of Richard" and the experimental "Jerry Garcia's Finger."
Die-hard fans will want to splurge for the "Super Deluxe" edition that contains 4CD/1 Blu-Ray. The four CDs consist of the original album, remastered, a CD of b-sides and live songs, a CD of just the demos and a CD of just the rehearsals. The entire "Super Deluxe" set consists of 54 songs and over four hours of music. The Blu-Ray contains the 5.1 Audio Mix of the album in the highest quality possible. Also included with the five discs is a hardbound book with new and original artwork and liner notes from David Fricke (Rolling Stone). The album will also be available in a double-LP gatefold pressed on 200-gram vinyl for all the record collectors out there.
Soundgarden, along with Universal Music and A&M Records have spared no expense paying proper homage to one of the greatest albums of the nineties rock era. To find out more about this amazing new release, please visit soundgardenworld.com.
