'Pretty Noose' made it to SG's A-Sides...sentimental value for me, too; Chris Cornell actually played this for our 'on the rail' group during his encore on a recent solo tour, trashing the intended set list, just because we had signs requesting that he play it - & he did!!! Gotta love a (great) musician who loves his fans right back ; )
