Pearl Jam 9/14/20

FInally coming to CD on October 22nd is Pearl Jam‘s 1992 performance on MTV Unplugged. The new set will be also be reissued on vinyl following last year’s Record Store Day’s Black Friday event.

Pearl Jam posted about the upcoming set on its official website:

Three days after completing their first American tour, Pearl Jam headed to New York to strip back songs from their debut album Ten, well on its way to becoming one of 1992’s top rock albums. For the first time on vinyl, relive all seven songs featured in the MTV Unplugged broadcast.

The tracklisting to Pearl Jam – MTV Unplugged is:  “Oceans,” “State Of Love And Trust,” “Alive,” “Black,” “Jeremy,” “Even Flow,” and “Porch.”

Guitarist Stone Gossard told us why he thinks Pearl Jam remains strong after 30 years together: [“I mean, I think we all really respect each other. We’ve been together long enough that we know how lucky we are to be in this position. So I think there’s a lot of gratitude in the band and a lot of like, when we show up together we’re like, ‘Wow, we have our own warehouse and we get to plug in our amps and we’re gonna write some new songs and somebody cares about it and, y’know, we’re gonna put a record out and we sold some tickets and . . . ‘ I mean, these things are not just things we take for granted, because we’re totally aware of how fortunate we are.”] SOUNDCUE (:25 OC: . . . fortunate we are)

TL; DR

  • Finally coming to CD on October 22nd is Pearl Jam‘s 1992 performance on MTV Unplugged. The new set will be also be reissued on vinyl following last year’s Record Store Day’s Black Friday event.
