A year before Soundgarden would release their seminal Badmotorfinger LP, the Seattle band gave listeners a taste of what was to come with this “bonus release” in the Sub Pop Singles Club series. While they’d later up the ante by writing a song with a spoon solo, “Room A Thousand Years Wide” notably contains a wild saxophone solo from Black Cat Orchestra’s Scott Granlund. The jury’s still out if this means Kenny G can qualify as a grunge musician.
