Cameron Crowe captured the Seattle Grunge music scene so vividly with his epic film, “Singles” in 1991. As memorable as the movie was, the soundtrack probably left more of a lasting impression. The groundbreaking collection of songs was the first time artists like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Alice In Chains, and Mother Love Bone all appeared together on one record. It ignited the Grunge Era and suddenly bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam were dominating the charts and airwaves. On May 19th this year, a new double album reissue of the “Singles” Soundtrack will showcase a full disc of rare songs that didn’t make the first album. Matt Dillon’s fictional band, Citizen Dick, featuring Eddie Vedder is included on the release as well as Chris Cornell’s (Soundgarden) EP, Poncier. Two Alice In Chains live recordings (including “Would?), a couple Paul Westerberg acoustic numbers, and a solo song by Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready highlight the second disc.
“WOULD?” ALICE IN CHAINS
“STATE OF LOVE AND TRUST” PEARL JAM
