Top Ten Lesser-Known Smashing Pumpkins Releases

Most fans of the Smashing Pumpkins are familiar with all their studio albums and a few EPs and compilations, but there's a few that some haven't heard of. You can find them on RateYourMusic or YouTube and this list covers some of them

The Top Ten Lesser-Known Smashing Pumpkins Releases

1 Moon

In truth, Moon is the first actual LP that the Smashing Pumpkins release, not Gish. Moon was made in 1989, the quality of sound isn't as great, but has a few demo versions of songs from Gish and Pisces Iscariot. - NuMetalManiak

2 Earphoria

This is a 2002 live album.There aren't really any live releases by The Smashing Pumpkins that are actually commercially available, and Earphoria was in fact heavily bootlegged. Regardless it's probably the best live album that the Smashing Pumpkins made. - NuMetalManiak

3 Oceania: Live in NYC

This live album is a little more commercially available than Earphoria, probably after the release of the album itself, but it isn't as good as Oceania overall. Still, it not only is a live performance of the entire Oceania album but also live versions of several other hit songs as well and it worked quite well. - NuMetalManiak

4 Nothing Ever Changes

1988, this is the earliest thing the Smashing Pumpkins released. It's a 4-track EP, somewhat bad quality, but it's the earliest thing ever recorded by The Smashing Pumpkins. - NuMetalManiak

5 Lull

Another 4-track EP that fell by the wayside, actually was released the same year as Gish and features an alternate version of Rhinoceros. - NuMetalManiak

6 Peel Sessions

This time we have a very obscure 3-track EP which also was released the same year as Gish, both being heavily bootlegged releases. The songs Siva and Girl Named Sandoz were on Gish and Pisces Iscariot, respectively. - NuMetalManiak

7 Live at Cabaret Metro 10-5-88

Wait, is this the earliest Smashing Pumpkins release? Well the album itself is a live EP album, released in 2000 but the date says 1988 so who knows. Regardless the album actually has songs not on other studio albums so it's very interesting and obscure. - NuMetalManiak

8 The Smashing Pumpkins (Pink EP)

I call this one the Pink EP because if you go to their page on RateYourMusic, this is the album cover's color of a self-titled EP. Not to be confused with a greatest hits album of the same name by the way. Some of the songs on Live at Cabaret Metro 10-5-88 got their origins from this EP, or is it the other way around? - NuMetalManiak

9 Live in Chicago 23.10.95

Once again, another live bootleg EP that this time had mostly hit songs from Mellon Collie and Siamese Dream. Actually good quality. - NuMetalManiak
