The ’90s Revival Continues: Soundgarden Best-Of Planned (UPDATED WITH TRACK LIST)

with 4 comments

Influential grunge rockers Soundgarden – set to take center stage at Lollapalooza this weekend – have announced a new compilation due for a fall release.

Telephantasm: A Retrospective, as it’s called, will feature songs from all of the band’s albums and EPs, plus a new vault track, “Black Rain,” recorded during the Badmotorfinger sessions in 1991. The set will be included as a bonus disc with the upcoming video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, to be released September 28, and will be available individually on October 5 in both standard and deluxe (double CD and DVD) packages. This is the band’s first product since 1997’s A-Sides, a compilation quickly assembled after the band’s breakup earlier that year. Lead singer Chris Cornell went on to head Audioslave and work on his own solo career before reuniting with his bandmates earlier this year.

UPDATE: Thanks to Anth for pointing us toward the track listing from Spin. Check it out after the jump.

  1. There’s a tracklist here:

    http://grungereport.net/2010/08/03/tracklisting-revealed-for-soundgardens-telephantasm/

    A number of rare tracks included on the deluxe set, although as a huge fan I must say I’m mostly perplexed by the track selection.

  2. This is pretty superfluous, considering they already have a compilation, A-Sides, on the market that’s about as good a Soundgarden primer as could be constructed. If they’d recorded a few new songs for this one, however…

  3. This looks like it’s worth getting just for the DVD.

    I’m glad “The Day I Tried To Live” made it into the mix somewhere.

    Am I missing something??? What’s the significance of the asterisk after several titles? I assume it means never before released but it isn’t clear.

    • You’re quite right. The asterisks are for tracks never-before-released on CD (the single version of “Room a Thousand Years Wide” was vinyl-only).
