Seattle-based record label, Sub Pop, has announced that they will be reissuing Soundgarden’s first EP, Screaming Life, along with the bonus tracks from the band’s Fopp EP and their songs from the Sub Pop 200 compilation, as one combined LP.
According to the official press release, long-time producer, Jack Endino, who worked on the Screaming Life and the Sub Pop 200 sessions, has returned to remaster each of the 11 tracks.
On SubPop.com, Endino remembers initially working with the band in the ‘90s:
"Soon after opening Reciprocal Recording in July 1986, there I was with Soundgarden, trying to make the most of our eight tracks. Somehow, we found room for all of Matt Cameron’s ‘bonus tubs,’ Hiro’s primordial Fender bass, and a whopping four tracks to share between Kim Thayil's mad guitar psychedelia and Chris Cornell's still-expanding voice. ‘Nothing To Say’ was the song that made us all look at each other and go, ‘uh, holy crap, how did we do this?’," Endino recalls.
All orders come with a downloadable MP3 containing all songs from the LP, which includes everything from both the Screaming Life and Fopp EPs.
The scheduled release date is November 26, 2013, but the albums, which are being offered up on CD, 2-LP and digital download, are currently available for pre-order on Sub Pop’s website.
