Soundgarden’s very first releases are being reissued on CD, double vinyl and as a digital set. The music will drop on November 26th through Sub Pop Records, the legendary label that was the band’s first home.
The set will include the band’s entire debut EP, “Screaming Life”, as well as bonus tracks from its “Fopp” EP and songs that appeared on the “Sub Pop 200″ compilation. All of the sets originally came out in the late ’80s.
All the tracks have been remastered and the LP versions are the first time the songs have been pressed to vinyl since the original releases.
Just after “Screaming Life” was released, A&M Records offered the band a major label deal.

Badfinger’s “Baby Blue” closed the finale of “Breaking Bad” and that led to the track moving into the Top 25 on iTunes’ top songs list. It’s also set to make a return to the Billboard charts this week.
The song has had an increase in sales of almost 3,000%. It sold almost 5,000 downloads right after the “Breaking Bad” finale signed off. That one-day figure should give the 1972 track earn its largest digital sales week ever. It has never sold more than 1,000 downloads in a single week.
The song was originally a top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hit for the band and reached No. 14. The track was featured on the British group’s album “Straight Up,” which was produced by Todd Rundgren and George Harrison. It was released on the Beatles’ record label, Apple.

Nirvana fans can now buy the childhood home of late frontman Kurt Cobain, complete with his mattress. His mother, Wendy O’Connor, is putting the 1.5-story bungalow on the market. The house is located two hours southwest of Seattle.
To help sell it, the family is showing pictures of Cobain’s early life inside the house, including one of a chocolate-frosted birthday cake for Kurt and a shot of a teenage Cobain smiling with a guitar in his hand in his messy room.
The home was last assessed at less than $67,000. It’s being listed for $500,000.
It’s a short walk from a riverfront park dedicated to Cobain’s memory and the family said it would welcome a partnership to make the home into a museum.
His room still has the band names he put on the walls, as well as the holes he put in them.
A statement from the family said: “We’ve decided to sell the home to create a legacy for Kurt, and yes, there are some mixed feelings since we have all loved the home and it carries so many great memories. But our family has moved on from Washington, and we feel it’s time to let go of the home.”
The house was built in 1923 and has bad carpeting, water-stained wooden shingles on some interior walls, and a recent coat of yellow paint. Cobain’s parents bought it in 1969, when Kurt was 2. He lived there until they separated when he was 9, and again with his mom during his later teen years. The home was last lived in by a family friend four years ago.
