    Because I'm stupid...I ordered both the Loser and 10C bundles. Let's see how it all shakes out.

    As I said elsewhere, cancelled my loser, ordered the 10C. The 10C ones don't say they include a download, which is weird. My loser order had tow instant downloads which are now gone since I cancelled. Is it an oversight, I wonder? I'd like a digital copy of the music/book etc.

    Wonder what exclusives there are, just the (transparent?) colour?

    Ordered the 10C bundle. Easy choice for me; I’ve had my originals for around 30 years now and I’ve played the hell out of them.
    Time for an upgrade!

    I sent Sub Pop an email asking what the differences are, if any.  It could be a simple case of wording.

    Alright, the word from Sub Pop is that the Ten Club editions are translucent, and the Loser editions are opaque.

    If this was Pearl Jam I’d prob buy both loser and 10c editions but no way in hell am I dropping $90 on both sets for green river. 
    I'm like an opening band for your mom.

    Read on the SubPop site that the 10C/Easy Street are an “exclusive variant” to what I presume they mean of the less limited Loser edition.  Yeah, I also got both.  I also had the two songs as instant downloads (mp3s) on both transactions.

    Are you sure? Because the 10C item doesn't mention downloads and I only got them on my Loser order (subsequently cancelled before d/l).

    To be fair, 10C aren't selling this direct, so the UK shop is irrelevant.

    Stream is available for the 10club / Easy Street Bundle but there is no included digital downloads of the Full Album, Digital Booklet & Instant Downloads of "Forever Means" & "This Town" like what Sub Pop's Loser edition includes.

    Yeah, I know, bummer. I wonder if it's an oversight?

    That makes no sense though. Both orders go through the Sub Pop Mega Mart website, so why should you get less for your money if you buy the 10C version?

    Green River
    The story of Seattle’s rise to global rock supremacy in the late ’80s and early ’90s begins with Green River.Made up of Jeff Ament (bass), Mark Arm (guitar/vocals), Bruce Fairweather (guitar), Stone Gossard (guitar), and Alex Shumway (drums), the quintet put out three 12”s and a 7” single during its brief existence. Green River’s influence on Seattle’smusic scene spread far and wide thanks to the members’ dispersion into bands including Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, and Love Battery, as well as the punk-glam-sludge-rock songs they left behind.

    “By ‘83, ‘84, there was definitely a movement that was happening within hardcore, like Black Flag slowing down for My War,” says Arm. “The Replacements and Butthole Surfers were rearing their heads, and they’re very different bands, but they’re not hardcore—the Replacements are pretty much straight-up rock, and Butthole Surfers were God knows what. Sonic Youth’s Bad Moon Rising was around, and a lot of really interesting post-hardcore things were happening.”

    Green River, which formed in 1984, was part of that evolution, with a sound that straddled a lot of different genres—blues, punk, bloozy straight-ahead rock. The mini-LP Dry As A Bone, which came out in 1987, and the band’s lone full-length Rehab Doll, which came out in 1988, were released as a single CD with a few bonus cuts, including their sneering cover of David Bowie’s “Queen Bitch” and their marauding version of Dead Boys’ “Ain’t Nothin’ to Do,” in 1990—but they’ve been unavailable on vinyl for years. Now, these slices of Seattle music history are not only back in print, they’re accompanied by items from the vaults that had been forgotten about for decades. 

    Green River’s place in American music history is without question, but these recordings paint a more complete picture of the band—and of rock in the mid- to late-’80s, when punk’s faster-and-louder ideals had begun shape-shifting into other ideas.

    Pre-order the Loser Editions on green and lime colored vinyl while supplies last.
