SOUNDGARDEN PLANNING TO REISSUE REMIXED FIRST ALBUM
Soundgardenreleased a deluxe 20th anniversary reissue of its 1994 album Superunknown this year and has a three-CD collection of B-sides and rarities called Echo Of Miles is coming out next week.
But the band isn’t done restoring its old catalog yet. Guitarist Kim Thayil said that that he and famed Seattle producer Jack Endino recently turned their attention to the band’s first album, 1988’s Ultramega OK, “Last year, Jack Endino and I spent a number of weeks remixing Ultramega OK and we’re gonna search for a label — it’s no longer on SST — and put it out with a beautiful, heavier, warmer mix from Jack Endino, which is something we always felt we had to correct about that release.”
Ultramega OK was released in 1988 on the SST label and was Soundgarden’s first full-length release after recording two EPs for the Seattle-based Sub Pop Records.
