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. 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.
Slow Hole To China features 15 remastered rarities straight from the West Virginia and Maryland vaults of Neil Fallon, Jean-Paul Gaster, Tim Sult, and Dan Maines! Includes Clutch's dynamic cover of John Coltrane's 'Equinox'. Renews automatically. While I have yet to hear a bad Clutch song, I bought Slow Hole with some hesitation. The tags rare and unreleased (or re-released in this case) can sometimes be warning signs of an only okay, slapped together record. Of course, this is not the case with Clutch. This record rocks as hard as any of their regular studio release.

The original 2003 version, or the remastered 2009 version with three extra tracks, Hale Bopp Blues Ship of Gold (West Virginia) and King of Arizona. After all, the bands decided not to put it out in the first place for some reason or other. Slow Hole To China feels much more like a complete studio album than any rarities collection I’ve ever heard before, with a pretty consistent audio quality and a musical quality up to Clutch’s usual, remarkably high standard.
