Pearl Jam‘s iconic MTV Unplugged is available now on vinyl for the first time ever.
The session was recorded in the days following the band’s first-ever European tour. The performance saw the band perform six cuts from their debut record, Ten.
“We literally got off the plane from Europe, spent all day in a cavernous sound studio in New York, and did the show that night,” explained bassist Jeff Ament. “It’s pretty powerful, and Ed’s singing great. Yet it’s kind of naive, which is awesome.”
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RECORD STORE
There are a lot of independent stores that participate in Record Store Day. Not all of them will choose to participate in all promotions, or carry all releases. Just because a store is listed here does NOT mean it will have the goodie or PJ record you’re looking for.
That said, find a store near you and check with them directly.
It’s always a good idea to be BFFs with your neighborhood record store.
