Stardog Records has released a collection of Mother Love Bone songs titled On Earth As It Is: The Complete Works. The collection features 40 tracks covering nearly 3 hours, and includes remastered tracks, B-sides, demos, and some unreleased songs.
Mother Love Bone formed in Seattle in 1988 and were one of the earliest band’s to be credited for creating the “grunge” sound. The band members included Andrew Wood (vocals), Stone Gossard (rhythm guitar), Bruce Fairweather (lead guitar), Jeff Ament (bass), and Greg Gilmore (drums).
The group released its only studio album, Apple, in 1990. Unfortunately, they only lasted a couple years due to Andrew’s heroin overdose that same year. A posthumous self-titled compilation album known as Stardog Champion was released in 1992. Jeff and Stone would go on to join Temple of the Dog with Chris Cornell before joining with Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready to form Pearl Jam.
