Soundgarden - Live On I-5: Wikipedia Album Entry

Live on I-5 - a reference to the Interstate 5 which runs up and down the West Coast - the new collection compiles live tracks from a 1996 run by the band and captures the band at the height of their recording and touring career. This carefully selected compilation includes fan favorites like Spoonman, Rusty Cage, Burden In My Hand, and Black Hole Sun (performed by Chris Cornell solo), as well what insiders are calling the definitive live performance of Jesus Christ Pose. As a bonus, the disc includes two brilliantly inspired covers: The Beatles Helter Skelter and The Stooges anarchic proto-punk classic, Search and Destroy. Soundgarden took out recording engineer Adam Kasper with them on the West Coast leg of this tour- the first time they ever recorded any live shows. They rented a mobile 24 track machine/truck and recorded the gigs on 2" tape. Soundgarden had always intended to release it as a live record soon after the tour, but alas, they disbanded and the tapes were left in the closet of Studio X in Seattle, until now.
