Chris Cornell Statement Re Temple Of The Dog

Chris has made the following statement on the current legal dispute re Temple Of The Dog.

“The Temple of the Dog recordings were made by members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam to honor our friend, Andy Wood, who died much too soon.  Temple of the Dog recorded the album in a studio co-owned by Raj Parashar.  A&M Records paid for the recordings and the use of the studio.  For Parashar to pretend he has a right to keep the recordings makes no more sense than the owner of a laundromat claiming he owns the clothes you washed in his washing machine.”

Soundgarden Releases ‘Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path” on 6 LP Vinyl

Soundgarden will release highly acclaimed rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path on 6-LP vinyl on May 19 in the US (dates in other countries may vary).

Hard on the heels of the 20th anniversary deluxe re-release of Superunknown early last year, the new vinyl package, first released as a 3-CD collection and as a 14-track single CD last November, will feature the three album thematic collection on six LPs with three separate jackets, each sporting its own unique art and housed in a slipcase wrapped in foil paper designed by Josh Graham.

You can pre-order a copy of the collection starting today at SOUNDGARDENWORLD HERE or at AMAZON HERE.

The collection was curated and hand-selected by guitarist Kim Thayil. Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path includes rarities that have appeared as B-sides, album bonus tracks, EPs, soundtracks, compilations and live recordings – a must for any fan of the band.

Echo Of Miles collects and curates all these “scattered tracks across the path”, offering a different slant on the 26-year history and evolution of one of alternative rock’s finest bands.

LP 1 & 2, dubbed “ORIGINALS,” is filled with Soundgarden-written songs, mainly B-sides along with some soundtrack and compilation selections in addition to two unreleased songs on vinyl which go back as far as “Sub Pop Rock City,” originally included as part of the 1988 compilation, Sub Pop 200. The two unreleased tracks are “Kristi,” a 1996 outtake from the Down on the Upside sessions which is reportedly drummer Matt Cameron’s favorite Soundgarden song, and “Storm,” a brand-new track recorded in early 2014.

LP 3 & 4, “COVERS,” offers a stellar showcase of songs from bands who Soundgarden love and admire, from classic rockers The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and Sly & the Family Stone to punk pioneers The Stooges, the Ramones, Fear and DEVO. Showing their sense of humor, Soundgarden also cover songs by Spinal Tap and Cheech & Chong. The two unreleased tracks include the Beatles’ “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide…” and the Sly Stone track “Thank You…”, both of which were originally recorded for a BBC Radio 1 John Peel session in 1989.

LP 5 & 6, “ODDITIES,” offer a wide-ranging combination of instrumentals, remixes and demos. The unreleased tracks on vinyl include “Twin Tower,” penned by Matt Cameron, which was originally recorded at Seattle’s London Bridge studio in December 1988 during the sessions for Louder Than Love. “Night Surf” is an instrumental performed by bassist Ben Shepherd which the band used to open their 1994 tour in conjunction with an introductory film which screened before they took the stage. Steve Fisk’s new remix of “The Telephantasm (Resurrection Remix),” a song originally released for 2011 Record Store Day, has also never been available on vinyl before.
