Pearl Jam Revive Intimate, Pre-Bonnaroo Gig for Third Man Live LP
Two days before Pearl Jam‘s headlining Bonnaroo show, the rock legends performed a career-spanning set for 250 fans at Third Man Records’ Nashville venue, Blue Room. The results were recorded direct to acetate and will be released as a limited edition live LP through Third Man’s Vault subscription service.
Vault Package 29 will include a black-and-gold, split-colored vinyl edition of the concert, along with a seven-inch featuring a solo Eddie Vedder acoustic song recorded at Third Man’s Voice-o-Graph recording booth.
Rounding out the set is a hardcover photo book featuring shots by the label’s in-house photographer, Jamie Goodsell; a metal lapel pin featuring a custom Pearl Jam/Third Man mash-up logo; and a circular patch with the same design.
Pearl Jam performed 10 tracks during their wide-ranging Blue Room show – opening with a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Interstellar Overdrive” and spanning their own catalog, from Ten deep cut “Deep” to 2006′s “Life Wasted.” The band kicked off their encore with unreleased track “Of the Earth,” bringing out Third Man founder Jack White to trade guitar solos with Mike McCready. A preview of the thunderous latter song is available below.
Members of Pearl Jam’s Ten Club will receive a single-use coupon for $15 off the Vault package. The official deadline to subscribe to the service is July 31st. Full details are available at the Third Man Records website.
Last month, Vedder performed a surprise set of hits and cover tunes at Chicago benefit concert Hot Stove Cool Music. During Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In the Free World,” Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist-New York Yankees centerfielder Bernie Williams joined the singer.
