Soundgarden – Live On I-5 (Universal Music Canada)

Having seen Soundgarden live on a few different occasions back in the 90’s, I can confidently say that the only aspect of their performance that was never quite up to snuff was vocalist Chris Cornell. Though he tended to be a vocal powerhouse on record, the live show was an entirely different beast and nowhere is that more evident than on the band’s first live record. Recorded while on tour in 1996, what I like the most about this effort is rather than going only with their commercial hits like Spoonman, Black Hole Sun and Outshined, the band offers a nice slice of catalogue tracks including Slaves & Bulldozers, Boot Camp and Ty Cobb.

  1. I totally agree with what you are saying about Chris Cornell’s voice. It seems to become slightly more worn with every band he is in.
