Editors’ Notes

This album is Mastered for iTunes. In coordination with the group’s recent reunion news, Telephantasm established Soundgarden’s reputation as one of America’s heaviest and most influential rock bands of the ’90s. Along with hits “Black Hole Sun” and “Spoonman”, live versions of “Jesus Christ Pose”, “Get On the Snake” and “Blow Up the Outside World” are unearthed.

Originally from the 1987 Screaming Life sessions recorded by Jack Endino, “The Telephantasm” blends mouth sounds, sound effects and guitar flourishes from other recordings into a trippy remix constructed by longtime Soundgarden remix producer Steve Fisk.
