Sonic Youth

Goo (4LP deluxe box)


The Deluxe Edition of Sonic Youth’s 1990 album Goo includes the original eleven track album in super remastered form but what makes it Deluxe? It's the inclusion of a further nineteen songs that give a behind-the-scenes peak at Goo's evolution, that's what!

The additional tracks are the band’s original 8-track demos (remixed and remastered); the album outtake “Lee #2” (previously unheard with vocals); rehearsal outtakes “Tuff Boyz” and “Isaac”; “Can Song” (a never-before-heard demo of “The Bedroom”); the Beach Boys cover “I Know There’s an Answer”; “Dr. Benway’s House” (the band’s contribution to William Burroughs’ Dead City Radio); B-sides “The Bedroom” and “That’s All I Know Right Now” (the latter a Neon Boys cover, Richard Hell & Tom Verlaine's pre-Television group) and finally, the promotion-only “Goo Interview”.

And just to make it ever more deluxe - a 16-page book is included with an interview-essay by Byron Coley, an essay by Mark Kates, and never-before-seen photos.
