3-CD rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path was released on November 24, 2014.

Disc 1, dubbed “ORIGINALS,” is filled with Soundgarden-written songs, mainly B-sides along with some soundtrack and compilation selections in addition to two unreleased songs, which go back as far as “Sub Pop Rock City,” originally included as part of the 1988 compilation, Sub Pop 200. The two unreleased tracks on this disc are “Kristi,” a 1996 outtake from the Down on the Upside sessions and “Storm,” a brand-new track recorded earlier this year.

Disc 2, “COVERS,” includes songs  from The Beatles [“Come Together,” “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey”], the Rolling Stones [“Stray Cat Blues”], The Doors [“Waiting for the Sun”], Black Sabbath [“Into The Void (Sealth)”], Jimi Hendrix [“Can You See Me?”] and Sly and the Family Stone [“Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)]” to punk pioneers The Stooges [“Search and Destroy”], the Ramones [“I Can’t Give You Anything”], Fear [“I Don’t Care About You”] and DEVO [“Girl U Want”]. Showing their sense of humor, Soundgarden also cover songs by Spinal Tap [“Big Bottom”] and Cheech & Chong [“Earache My Eye”]. The two unreleased tracks include the Beatles’ “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide…” and the Sly Stone track, both of which were originally recorded for a BBC Radio 1 John Peel session in 1989.

Disc 3, “ODDITIES,” offers a wide-ranging combination of instrumentals, remixes and demos. The unreleased tracks include “Twin Tower,” penned by Matt Cameron, which was originally recorded at Seattle’s London Bridge studio in December 1988 during the sessions for Louder Than Love. “Night Surf” is an instrumental performed by bassist Ben Shepherd which the band used to open their 1994 tour in conjunction with an introductory film which screened before they took the stage. Steve Fisk’s new remix of “The Telephantasm (Resurrection Remix),” a song originally released for 2011 Record Store Day, has also never been available on disc before.

Designed by Josh Graham, the set features three separate thematic discs in a clear plastic slipcase with three separate mini-jackets, each sporting its own unique art, a booklet and inserts, allowing collectors to mix and match their own album graphic layout.
