On Earth As It Is: The Complete Works is a reissue of the works from Mother Love Bone and it will be available in two formats:
- 3 LP Box Set – featuring remastered vinyl of Shine and Apple along with new artwork, rare photos, and other memorabilia
- 3 CD/1 DVD Box Set – featuring both Shine and Apple remastered plus b-sides, demos, and unreleased songs (including Stradog Champion performed by Pearl Jam & Chris Cornell at Alpine Valley in 2011). The box set will also include Love Bone Earth Affair – available for the first time on DVD, and includes bonus features of rare unseen live Mother Love Bone performances and more. Both products will feature new artwork by Jeff Ament.
