This comprehensive set includes Mother Love Bone’s seminal grunge album Apple and debut EP Shine, both remastered for the first time by Ed Brooks at RFI Mastering, together with over 20 rarities. Among the B-sides, alternative and live versions and unreleased songs are Andrew Wood’s demo of Chloe Dancer and a live recording of Stardog Champion featuring Chris Cornell and Pearl Jam.

The 1992 compilation Mother Love Bone didn’t contain everything the doomed Seattle grunge band recorded — far from it, actually, as the 2016 set On Earth as It Is: The Complete Works makes plain. Sprawling out over three CDs and a DVD, On Earth as It Is pairs the 1990 LP Apple and the 1989 EP on the first disc, essentially replicating the 1992 comp, and then over the course of two CDs it serves up all the B-sides, alternate takes, demos, and unreleased rarities. Some of this material, particularly the B-sides, are as finely honed as Apple, but the tracks that really kick are the rougher material on the third disc. Here, the band seems ragged and rangy, a low-rent Seattle spin on Guns N’ Roses — not just for the loud songs, either; when Andrew Wood sits down at the piano for “These R No Blues,” it seems prescient, pointing toward such Use Your Illusion ballads as “November Rain” — and that only winds up underscoring how Mother Love Bone was both thoroughly of the pre-grunge moment but also forward-looking. For anybody who wore out the original 1992 disc, that’s reason enough to pick up this set. –AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
