The limited edition 4-CD Deluxe Edition of Chris Cornell holds 64 songs with 11 recordings previously unreleased from all stages of Chris’ career including Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and his solo works. Creative Director for the project is Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog) who oversaw the project design including the 54-page booklet with unreleased photos. Liner note contributions by Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, Tom Morello, Mike McCready and Brendan O’Brien. The slipcase with 4 CD-sized mini-jackets is wrapped by a custom die-cut o-card that showcases Seattle with tree-line graphics on the front and other various cities Chris lived in throughout his life on the back.
The centerpiece to the collection is the newly discovered, unreleased track “When Bad Does Good” found in Chris’ personal audio archive which was performed, recorded and mixed by Chris himself. The additional ten unreleased live performances include Chris’ duet with Yusuf/Cat Stevens on “Wild World” and another duet with his daughter, Toni Cornell, on Bob Marley’s indelible classic, “Redemption Song.” Temple of the Dog’s 25th anniversary reunion/first-ever-official tour in 2016 is highlighted with hometown performances of “Reach Down” and the Andy Wood/Mother Love Bone favorite “Stargazer,” Chris’ personal arrangement of “One” featuring the lyrics to Metallica’s song set to the music of U2’s song of same name, and a first ever album release of Audioslave’s 2005 ground-breaking performance on Cuban soil of “Show Me How To Live.” Also in 2016, one of Chris’ personal career-topping moments was performing at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London where he covered The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.” The three additional live selections from Sweden in 2006 “Wide Awake,” “All Night Thing” and Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You” are from the very first show Chris performed by himself with an acoustic guitar in front of an audience which became the creative spark for his future, highly successful Songbook tours.

Great photos and booklet and rarities make total of at least 20 songs I didn’t have. This is a great box set from the great Chris Cornell !
Still miss him and having drinks with him at Saltys in the old days..It is what it is.I was hoping for more.
Top international reviews
So sad that it exists...he was the voice of a rock generation...his masters voice...very dearly missed.
The new song used to promote this anthology is wonderful...and hard to take at the same time...
The entertainment in his new world will be in for a treat...of the highest kind...
Ahinoi, ci sono anche un paio di pezzi del periodo di "Scream", l'album dance prodotto da Timbaland ("Talento sprecato", ne scrivemmo al tempo): il remix di Steve Aoki di "Part of me" è, se possibile, ancora più brutto dei pezzi del disco. Tra le varie chicche c'è pure "Lies", che Cornell incise con il collettivo italiano Gabin nel 2010.
11 gli inediti, a partire da "When bad does good", canzone usata comne singolo. Sono presenti "Reach down" e "Stargazer" (cover dei Mother Love Bone) tratte dal concerto a Seattle del tour della reunion dei Temple of Dog, "Hey baby (Land of the new rising sun)", che Cornell incise insieme ai M.A.C.C. (progetto formato insieme a McCready, Ament e Cameron) per un disco tributo a Jimi Hendrix e un duetto con Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam su "Wild world".
Mancano inevitabilmente molte cose - ne facciamo notare una, una soltanto: "Fell on black days" da "Superunknown", canzone centrale della produzione dei Soundgarden, che Cornell ha praticamente sempre cantato dal vivo.
"When bad does good", l'inedito centrale: paerte voce e organo, con l'acustica che si unisce, poi entra la batteria. Un'interpretatazione vocale da brividi, perfetta. Una gran canzone che lascia intuire cosa avrebbe ancora potuto fare.
"Chris Cornell" cerca di mettere d'accordo tutti: i fan, offrendo una raccolta con brani inediti e rarità; e l'ascoltatore casuale, che può avere un'immagine completa della "legacy" di questa voce, che ne ha fatte veramente di ogni colore.
Cominciavo a temere che non l'avrebbero mai fatta uscire.
Eccezionale ogni pezzo, come sempre, per chi l'apprezza. Riposa in pace.
