As Pearl Jam’s summer North American tour is unfolding (setlists available in our On The Road section, official bootlegs from the spring leg are all on sale at PearlJam.com), Ten Club Analog members in Europe are currently receiving the 2015 Annual Vinyl Single & the new Deep Magazine. Both releases are also available for all members (Digital and Analog) in digital format over at PearlJam.com under My Account > My Membership > Downloads. Side A features a previously unreleased rendition of Free’s Wishing Well, which they’d recorded back in 1991, during the Ten sessions. Side B is a cover of Bob Marley’s Redemption Song, performed by Eddie Vedder with Beyoncé at the Global Citizen Festival in New York on September 26, 2015.
In the meanwhile, new major releases have been announced.
Live at Third Man Records
On June 9, Pearl Jam performed a secret show inside the Blue Room, the live venue of record store/label Third Man Records in Nashville owned by Jack White (The White Stripes, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs). Attended by a few Ten Club members and a few dozen other guests, the short set was recorded live direct-to-acetate. On July 1, Third Man Records announced that it has been selected as their 29th quarterly Vault Package, in the form of a beautiful box set that includes: a black-and-gold, split-colored vinyl version of Pearl Jam’s set packaged in a custom jacket, a 7″ clear vinyl recording of Eddie Vedder singing an unreleased song (“Out of Sand”) inside the famous Voice-o-Graph booth (where Neil Young recorded his album “A Letter Home”), a hardcover photo book featuring photos of the evening, plus commemorative pin and patch. Ten Club members as of June 30 have already been emailed a discount code and instructions on how to purchase this limited edition recording. Deadline to pre-order is July 31. Non-Ten Club members can pre-order the package as well by signing up for a normal TMR Vault Platinum Subscription. The cutoff date to get Vault #29 is July 31. After that date, this special item will no longer be available in any other way.
