Official Soundgarden Appreciation Thread - Superunknown Reissue

edited February 2014 in Other Music
After doing a search for a general Soundgarden thread produced no results after 100 pages, I'm going to start one!

Yesterday Soundgarden tweeted out a rehearsal version of their second single off Superuknown "Day I Tried To Live" with the hashtag #Superunknown20. It starts off with Chris trying to get the arrangement right for a couple of minutes and then the full song. You can listen to it here:

Very cool little window into part of the making of their masterpiece album. Hopefully this is a signal that they have more in store to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Superunknown!!

EDIT:
Just announced - a major reissue of Superunknown. More goodies than a pillowcase full of Halloween candy. See the announcement here:

    For RSD they will be releasing a 10" box set of the superunknown singles. 5x10". Should be interesting.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see a full album reissue in the fall.
  • Yes!!!!

    There you go.

  • So excited, think I'm gonna have to buy the whole lot!

    It will be interesting to see how the remaster compares to the original, the original still sounds so good, I just hope they don't brick wall the shit out of it.
  • Fuck yeah - that deluxe set looks amazing! C'mon pre-orders!!!!

    Well, our generation has gone a bit deaf listening to records like this in the 90s, so they have to at least put a smidge volume increase on it. The 5.1 mix will be like hearing it in a whole other way.

    I'd like to send out a plea for someone to snag me one of the 10" vinyl set on Record Store Day! Being in Canada, and can pretty much guarantee that I won't be able to get it myself, so pleeaaaaaase, if someone else sees an extra one and can get it to me, I'll be so grateful! If I have to feed the flippers on Ebay I will, but I'd rather not! :-h

    It'll release on June 3. The announcement of the vinyl is in the opening paragraph. Looks like it will be the remastered version if the album.

    Anyone willing to share newly remastered instant download?

    $55 for a plain old double LP, plus shipping? image No thank you. I'm very disappointed in Soundgarden for that.

    Absolute horse shit. way too expensive.
  • MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 7,664
    I can deal with the $55, but $27 for a CD is CRAZY!
  • thebrigthebrig Posts: 390
    For those that are interested - Soundgarden is playing Superunknown in its entirety at the iTunes festival tonight. Performance is streaming live through iTunes at 8p PST. It will be available on iTunes for a few days after the show to view. To date - SG has never played Superunknown front to back before. One last thing - Matt will be on the kit tonight for his only confirmed appearance with the band this year!!

    watching it, it always amazes me how aloof Cornell is, but he is a great performer none the less.

    I tried to watch it through iTunes, but didn't work. :(

    Watched it today and thought it was a pretty good performance. Chris's voice seemed to get better as the show went on and it was obvious that they had actually rehearsed before doing this.

    I also tried through i tunes on both my laptop and PC. It stuttered alot. The sound was fine but the video kept pausing and was very choppy. I gave up after 5 minutes.

    I had the same issues. A shame really. I really hope they make this show available fro download.
  • I bought the super deluxe set but I didn't receive my "instant download". Anyone else have this problem? I just bought it today so I don't know if I have to wait or what.
