Soundgarden / Ultramega OK / remixed and expanded edition on the way

soundgarden

Soundgarden will issue a remixed an expanded version of their debut Ultramega OK in March.

The story goes that the band were never 100 percent happy with the mix of the 1988 album (produced by Drew Canulette) and not long after the album was issued, decided to remix the record for future pressings. The project fell by the wayside after the band were signed to a major label (A&M) and their subsequent success.

Wind forward 30 years and the original multi-track tapes were sourced and given to engineer Jack Endino to create a fresh mix of the album. Six early versions of tracks from Ultramega OK (recorded in 1987 on 8-track tape) have also been mixed by Endino and are appended to this new version of the album. These bonus tracks are on the vinyl and the CD versions of the reissue.

This new edition of Ultramega OK features sleeve notes from Kim Thayil and Jack Endino and will be issued (by Sub Pop) on CD and 2LP vinyl on 10 March 2017.

    Flower – best tune they’ve done. Period.

  3. Ross says:

    Brilliant news! About time this album got a decent reissue. All over this.
    Hopefully Down on the Upside is next.

  4. Charles K. says:

    Well this release definitely needed remixing. The poor mix of the original was the reason for the title. The band hated it and that term became the standard among the band members and migrated to the album title. Really interested in how this comes out.

  5. Clive Moss says:

    Ross. Down on the upside got a re-issue last year.

    While we’re discussing Soundgarden, and their best songs, I remember one called Heartfist, that I heard off an old file sharing site. Anyone remember that, and know if it’s legit?
