This cover is so weirdly on the nose that it sounds like I'm listening to a demo of the original, or something. Not meant as a criticism. It's actually very cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey chris and everyone!

Black Hole Sun gets my vote, if only to piss people (Soundgarden fans) off.
Avatar 12:35pm MenfussMike:

this opening riff is a rip from Sabbath's "Wheels of Confusion"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Rich in Washington:

holy crap - this is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Rich in Washington:

mixed by Martin Bisi. He's a real Bisi guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Cliff (temporarily not) in Prague:

I always liked Rusty Cage
Avatar 12:42pm MenfussMike:

ANYTHING from the first few Soundgarden albums is pretty solid.
Avatar 12:50pm Cecile:

I had to check out that cover of Black Blade. It's killer. Might improve on the original.
  12:53pm Brian in New Orleans:

checking in...great show...dropping in some Soundgarden is key...
Avatar 12:56pm Cecile:

it's pouring here.

Dreams of Entomologist - Scars of Earth
Avatar 12:59pm Cecile:

That's your favorite?
Avatar 1:01pm Chris M.:

@Cecile: is that ok with you?
Avatar 1:03pm Cecile:

I'd prefer you liked OD'd on Life itself or Astronomy, but the heart wants what it wants.
Avatar 1:06pm themutante:

Heyzeus Christie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Greg from ZONE 5:

@Cliff: Me too. I could listen to that opening riff all day.
Avatar 1:08pm Wild Neil:

PEACE All. Badmotorfinger I like better as it was not overplayed to death. And it sounded kinda like Fripp from King Crimson in some ways!
  1:08pm nickrhombi:

mind riot. - bumming hard on the news. - the phrenelith is lifting my spirits.
Avatar 1:08pm Cecile:

Hell, Chris Cornell sang a James Bond theme, too.
  1:09pm nickrhombi:

'i was tight rope walkin in two ton shoes'. - im going to miss that voice.
Avatar 1:15pm themutante:

Holy moly!
  1:16pm nickrhombi:

@chris, thanks for dropping the 'stormbringer' logic. wasnt aware of the boc tune or the books. and now that coverdale deep purple tune has more relevance. - will review all related. (that nargaroth narration was reminiscent of 'dark avenger.')
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Patrick:

chris, no need to go outside, totally getting scorched by this set...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Stanley:

Who doesn't like a bit of death metal, now and again?
I know I do.
Avatar 1:22pm themutante:

This set is the equivelant of opening the Ark of the Covenant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bluh....it occurs that I miss the voice of Layne Staley now as well. RIP
Avatar 1:24pm Cecile:

me too, Ken.
Avatar 1:26pm Cecile:

On this stuff, I like to open two pop up players at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Rich in Washington:

this whole show is exactly what I needed today.
Avatar 1:34pm Chris from DC:

Love that feedback/noise part by Brutal Truth.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Ricky:

Soundgarden at Maxwells NJ, early 90s, Cornell puts down the mic and continues to sing... amazing, mega powerful voice!
  2:07pm nickrhombi:

i remember seeing soundgarden at city gardens in 1990 with faith no more and voi vod, chris was hanging from the plumbing structures and kicking out the ceiling tiles on the stage. it was poetry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Michele:

Such sad news. Glad to hear you doing a tribute.
  2:09pm nickrhombi:

jeezes man, what a voice... - anything off of euphotia morning in the studio? - incredibly good record, start to finish.

Avatar 2:33pm PKNY:

"Hands All Over" is what Pearl Jam's "Even Flow" wants to be when it grows up.

  2:36pm nickrhombi:

i think limo wreck was my favorite off of this one... creeping and spooky.
Avatar 2:36pm V Priceless:

I was just thinking of "She Likes Surprises"...kind of a lost SG classic....
Avatar 2:38pm MenfussMike:

that song he did on the Singles soundtrack was quite good from what i remember even though i don't remember the title of it
  2:38pm nickrhombi:

'seven feathers for my head' - seasons.

I always said Cornell was like Paul Rogers from Free/Bad Company. Great voice, but I rarely felt like the songs were up to it. I still liked hearing them both, though.

  2:59pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Great set. I saw Soundgarden @ City Gardens in 1990. Chris Cornell destroyed the place.
