Slow Hole to China: Rare and Unreleased is an album by the band Clutch, consisting of various previously unreleased recordings, released in 2003. Clutch has since released a remastered reissue of the album on April 28, 2009, re-titled Slow Hole to China: Rare and Re-Released.[1]

Album information[edit]

The album was released on CD by River Road Records, and 3,000 copies were printed on 12" LP by Emetic Records, with 2,000 of these regular black vinyl, while 1,000 were rare red marble vinyl.[2]

It is an album of rare recording of songs (that have been extensively bootlegged over the years), with cover versions and some of the rare singles by the band. It also has some 'alternate' earlier versions of songs that were released on albums in a different format to what was originally recorded, something the band have done, with albums such as Jam Room, before. The remastered reissue has 3 more of such tracks added to the original.[3][4][5][6]

This is also the era of Clutch recording the Pink Floyd song "Money" for the cover album Sucking the 70s, which was released October 8, 2002.
