30th Anniversary Remastered 180g Black Vinyl Double LP!
A Snapshot of the '90s Seattle Grunge Scene!
Featuring Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney & More!
Mondo and Vinyl Films are proud to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe's 1992 sophomore film Singles, with an all new, remastered filmmaker-approved vinyl re-issue.
The Singles soundtrack was released in early 1992, a full three months before the film opened, and it was an instant hit, eventually selling over two million copies. It's the perfect snapshot of grunge, and of Seattle at a certain place and time. Cameron Crowe made Singles a full year before grunge became one of the last cultural phenomenons of pre-internet times. The soundtrack is phenomenal, featuring every Seattle band that was hot at the time (except Nirvana).
Alice in Chains delivers "Would?", a dark gothic grunger about former Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood (who died in 1990 of a drug overdose). The spectre of Andrew Wood looms large on this soundtrack; his band's fingerprints can be heard throughout the score. Their epic "Chloe Dancer / Crown of Thorns" closes out side A, and both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden (featuring former MLB members) turn in some of their best songs. Paul Westerberg, fresh from the breakup of the incredible The Replacements, has two solo songs, including the mini hit "Dyslexic Heart". Also featured are Screaming Trees, The Smashing Pumpkins, Jimi Hendrix, and The Lovemongers, and let us not forget the incomparable Mudhoney with the barbed "Overblown".
Undoubtedly one of the greatest soundtracks ever released.
