Soundgarden Celebrates 20th Anniversary of “Superunknown”

Soundgarden: Superunknown 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe EditionIf you love not only the bass on Soundgarden’s classic album Superunknown, but also the numerous guitar tunings found there, you have bassist Ben Shepherd to thank for both.

And if you want to revisit the early 1990s Soundgarden sound in the best way possible, you can now with the 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition of the 1994 release.

The set is available on four CDs and Blu-Ray Audio Disc, and on vinyl. The CD super-deluxe set features a hardbound book, liner notes by rock writer David Fricke, previously unseen photos and reimagined album art. The two-LP vinyl set is just the entire album pressed on 200-gram vinyl and includes a digital download card.

Previously unreleased demos, live versions of the album’s songs, alternate mixes and remixes are all available on this set that was chock-full of late-grunge-era hits like “My Wave,” “Fell on Black Days,” “Spoonman” and “Black Hole Sun.”

The Super Deluxe Set is available on CD, vinyl and for digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3.)
