Singles (Deluxe Version) [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

This newly expanded 2LP edition of the ‘Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ features the album’s original 13 tracks newly mastered and freshly pressed across four sides of collectible 12″ vinyl with a bonus CD insert of rarities and unreleased tracks.

The bonus CD features previously unreleased recordings by Mudhoney, Paul Westerberg, Mike McCready and Chris Cornell in addition to rarities such as Cornell’s 1992 EP ‘Poncier’ (debuting an early rendition of Spoonman”) and tracks from the film not included on the original soundtrack album.

This expanded edition includes, for the first time on CD, “Touch Me I’m Dick,” the signature track from “Singles” performed by Citizen Dick (a fictional band created for the film featuring frontman Matt Dillon backed by Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament).

Also included are revelatory liner notes–and a track-by-track description of the album’s musical contents–written especially for this collection by Cameron Crowe, the screenwriter and director of “Singles.” The film’s soundtrack is produced by Danny Bramson and Cameron Crowe.

List Price: $ 23.62

    a welcome reprisal (weird coincidence?), May 21, 2017

    This past Thursday, May 18, I heard radio news that Cornell died the night before. The first song that came to me was “Seasons” from this soundtrack. I had the cassette way back when, and I have loved that song all these years.

    That Thursday night, my wife said it was time to replace her lost copy of the CD. I visited Amazon and discovered this 25th anniversary version. It arrived this morning, in hot Phoenix.

    No need to speak of the original (disc one), so brief comments on the extra disc.

    I had no knowledge of the “Poncier” ep, which resides here. Cornell demos, one of which (Spoonman) would find life on Soundgarden’s superb album Superunknown a few years after. The three other songs from this ep should interest those who appreciate Cornell’s music (though I assume most have heard these). Flutter Girl is wonderful, and sounds like it could have been a template for Black Hole Sun. The final song from this ep, called Missing, has a bit of mid-90s power pop vibe (Plimsouls-esque), and very different than any recordings Cornell made before or after.

    Next, after the Poncier ep, comes live recordings from AIC (the timeless and phenomenal Would?, followed by It Ain’t Like That). Then, live rendition of Soundgarden’s equally timeless and phenomenal Birth Ritual. Truly a snapshot of a fertile period in the history of rock music in North America in the 90s. And, to my jaded ears, still sounds vital.

    That this edition was released 48 hours after Cornell died seems a bit of a weird coincidence. Personally, I feel more saddened by his death than I do other musical icons deaths during the past two years. Chris’s lyrics and otherworldly howl will resonate in my heart and soul as long as I live. His art touched my heart.

    I encourage anyone who appreciates this amazing time of great music exploding from this country to revisit this compilation. In some ways, it hits harder now than it did 25 years ago.

    RIP, Chris. Why’d you do it man?

    This review is from: Singles (Deluxe Version) [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] (Vinyl)
    Classic soundtrack. Both records sound great and I did not have packaging issues like some other reviewers. The bonus CD was included and two separate records were in there. The only bad thing that I could possibly say is that the paper inserts were very basic, but that’s kinda a minor point. So happy with this purchase.
