Arranger: Soundgarden.

The 2012 box set Classic Album Selection rounds up all the albums Soundgarden released between 1989 and 1996 -- Louder Than Love, Badmotorfinger, Superunknown, Down on the Upside -- and adds the 2011 live album Live on I-5, which itself is comprised of recordings from the 1996 tour supporting Down on the Upside. All five of the albums are presented as mini-LPs in paper sleeves, making this a handsome, easy way to acquire the prime of Soundgarden's career. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
