This remixed and expanded reissue of Soundgarden’s Ultramega OK is a long-planned ‘correction’ of the legendary band’s Grammy-nominated debut full-length.

The album was originally released in 1988 on SST Records. While the band enjoyed working with the original producer, Drew Canulette, they soon realized they weren’t quite happy with the final mix. Thus, shortly after the album’s release, they decided to remix the album for subsequent pressings. However, success intervened: the band rapidly scored a deal with A&M and began work on their major label debut Louder Than Love, and the Ultramega OK remix project fell by the wayside as Soundgarden climbed to stardom.

In 2016, after worldwide success, a breakup, a reunion and many albums and tours, the band finally acquired the original multi-track tapes to Ultramega OK and carved out time to dig into the remix. They handed the tapes over to longtime friend and engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, Skin Yard), who worked with the band to create a fresh mix of the album that, for the band, ties up this persistent loose end and remedies the sound of their debut full-length.
