Sublime’s ‘Greatest Hits’ Set For Vinyl Reissue

From Udiscovermusic

Originally issued in 1999, Californian skate punk legends Sublime’s career-spanning, gold-selling Greatest Hits is set for vinyl reissue through Geffen/UMe on 7 June.

The 10-track album includes the band’s signature hits, ‘What I Got’, ‘Wrong Way’, ‘Santeria’ and ‘Doin’ Time’, in addition to tracks from their first two albums, 40 oz. To Freedom and Robbin’ The Hood.

Formed in Long Beach, California, formed in 1988, Sublime consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass), and Bud Gaugh (drums), with their line-up remaining unchanged until Nowell’s tragic death brought the band to an end.

Sublime’s first two albums, 40oz. to Freedom (1992) and Robbin’ The Hood (1994) established the band’s fanbase and brought them cult-level success in the US, but the band didn’t experience major commercial success until 1996, when their self-titled third album, released two months after Nowell’s death, peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 and eventually went quintuple platinum. Sublime spawned the single ‘What I Got’, which remains the lone No. 1 hit single (on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart) of the band’s career.

Greatest Hits is out on 7 June and can be bought here, and you can read the full story at Udiscovermusic
