Soundgarden / Badmotorfinger 25th anniversary super deluxe edition box set


Super Deluxe quick links: Amazon US

Soundgarden‘s third studio album, 1991’s Badmotorfinger, is to be reissued as an extensive seven-disc super deluxe edition with an enormous amount of unreleased tracks, two DVDs with video material and a blu-ray audio with a 5.1 surround sound mix.

The four CDs in this package include the remastered album, a disc of studio outtakes (newly mixed from the multi-tracks) and the complete Paramount Theatre Concert from March 6, 1992 (across two CDs).

Of the two DVDs, one features the video of the Paramount Theatre gig, while the other includes the ‘Motorvision’ home video and eleven unreleased additional performance videos from 1992.

Finally, a blu-ray audio includes the full album mixed in 24bit / 96kHz 5.1 surround sound (no confirmation if this also includes hi-res stereo, but seems reasonably likely).

That’s the audio and video, but this set comes with plenty of other ‘stuff’, much of which should be filed under ‘pointless’, including:

• A revolving Badmotorfinger icon box (batteries included)
• 12-inch 3D Lenticular Litho of the Badmotorfinger icon with silver foil
• Four band photo prints (8″ x 10″)
• Five-inch Badmotorfinger icon foil sticker
• 4-inch Triangular Spark Plug Silver Foil Sticker
• 25th Anniversary Badmotorfinger icon iron-on patch.

The super deluxe also comes with a 52-page booklet.

There is a two-CD version but rather than just give you all the demos, this disc includes nine of the outtakes/demos and seven tracks from the Paramount concert of the live audio.

A double vinyl LP edition features the 12-track album over three sides with a 25th anniversary etching on side 4.

All of these are issue on 18 November 2016. Non US links coming soon!

  1. Ross says:

    Any chance of the track listing for the 2CD edition?

  2. Michael says:

    They left off some great SOMMS tracks including Girl U Want, Stealth and Stray Cat Blues possibly for legal reasons. Also are missing are plenty of Outshined and Rusty Cage live b sides from the UK.

  3. Charles K says:

    Been waiting a while for this one, all over this. The 5.1 mix is really getting me anxious, was hoping that wouldn’t be omitted.

  4. Stevieb says:

    Not particularly a fan, but I’ll get it for the revolving Badmotorfinger icon box. Anyone know what sort of batteries it takes?

  5. Piotr says:

    XTC via APE would have included all that content on a single Blu Ray disc, and sold the lot for under 20 UKPounds. But people obviously people need the revolving Badmotorfinger icon box (batteries included) plus all the other collectibles, so US$144 seems like an appropriate cash grab. All these single albums coming in massive boxes will surely impact people’s storage space after a while. I know I’m running out.

    • Stevieb says:

      Yeah, but those batteries are going to run out one day and I need to get some replacement stock in now just in case there’s a run on them

  6. Jorge says:

    You know if there’s any chance for the BR-Audio to get a standalone release ?

  7. Joseph says:

    The bloat factor of this super deluxe puts it and the Songs From The Big Chair SDE (for instance) on two opposite ends of the spectrum, doesn’t it?

    Any word on the production run qty? Would love to play the waiting game but would also love to know if it’s only going to be 1000 copies worldwide, or less…

  8. Joseph says:

    Went over to the uDiscover store to see if pricing any better or any limited offerings – somewhat suprisingly not listed yet.

  9. Eric says:

    This s.d.e. seems to be much more interesting than the Superunknown one!!!

  10. Manuel says:

    Hi, Paul. A week ago I read on an Italian news site that the original album is remasterd and remixed too. Can you confirm this? Thanks.

    • Paul E. says:

      Great question! Like PJ’s “Ten” and the recent Temple of the Dog remaster. Must they always mess with the original mix and WHY? Are they trying for a less “grungier” sound- this is a frightening thought as I still play this one routinely. Not recommended in the car if you want to OBEY posted speed limits…I do try sometimes

  11. Dave says:

    Not sure a remaster is warranted. My original pressing sounds great as is. The extra material seems interesting.

  12. Mad Earwig says:

    I was amused to see at the bottom of the Soundgarden article, the ‘you may also like’….
    Kylie Minogue!

    Have you heard just how heavy ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ is?

  13. Fran Hearley says:

    189 bucks on Amazon USA…Jesus Christ!!(pose?)

  14. Roberto Zúñiga says:

    Life is what happens while you’re waiting for Roxy Music’s vinyl box set to drop on price for months now… and now massive box sets for both Temple of the Dog and Badmotorfinger. I’m definitely going broke this Christmas season.

  15. Mark R says:

    I’ve pre-ordered the silver vinyl limited edition 2 x LP (1000 copies only) but would love the material on the SDE. The “toys” I’m not too bothered about so £149 is a lot on money. I hope it’s also been remixed as the drum mix was never good IMO.

  16. Manuel says:

    Can anyone confirm if the original album has been also remixed ? I read so on an italian news site. Thanks.

  17. Kevin says:

    Anyone hear if Louder Than Love is supposed to receive similar reissue treatment?

    • Tim-meh says:

      No. LTL has been reissued on vinyl but no plans for this type of release. Ultramega OK has been remixed by Jack Endino and is going to be released in the new year.

      • Kevin says:

        Interesting Endino is actually remixing Ultramega OK when he remastered Screaming Life/Fopp. Do you know if they acquired their masters from SST and releasing it through Universal? I don’t think SST has ever reissued any of their catalog on SST. The only reissues I can think of are when Dinosaur Jr. reissued You’re Living All Over Me and Bug on Merge. I still hope one day I’ll see a Husker Du reissue campaign before I die.

        • Mark R says:

          Ultramega OK will be released by Sub Pop. Kim Thayil mentioned this on an interview recently. All the legal papers have sorted. I think Endino did a great job on Screaming Life/FOPP so I’m looking forward to it.

        • Tim-meh says:

          They did buy the master back from SST as did Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr previously. I’d love Greg Ginn to get his finger out and do a massive re-release of the SST catalogue.

          • Kevin says:

            Cool! It’s be nice to see at least a well-remastered Louder Than Love on CD, though. A deluxe version could have the 1st disc be the CD remaster and the 2nd disc be the DVD for Louder Than Live.

  18. gogandmagog says:

    This makes Pink Floyd box a bargain

  19. Adam says:

    Pop market US has this for $129.99 until noon today.

  20. Craig says:

    I had pre-ordered the SDE, but having thought about it for week or so sanity has prevailed and I’ve cancelled it. Even it it dropped to £100 – which isn’t going to happen anyway – it would still be eye-watering and there’s plenty more I could buy for the same outlay.
