Pearl Jam Unveils Four Massive Reissues of 'Ten'


The '90s nostalgia marketing machine is in full force. Even scarier, I read reference today of Pearl Jam readying for their 20th Anniversary. How's that for making you feel old and mushy today?

The kids at Billboard have all the details on Pearl Jam's plans to reissue their bazillion-selling debut, Ten. The four different options (available for pre-sale now, hitting the streets in March) are stockings-full of PJ goodies packaged as if they're kickbacks for donating to your local PBS station.

At the $140 level, for example, you get the Super Deluxe Edition, which includes everything but Mr. Vedder's bodily fluids (you gotta hold something back for the 25th Anniversary, right?). On 2 CDs, 1 DVD, and four LPs, you get:

  • Remastered version of the original
  • Producer Brendan O'Brien's re-mix with early versions of "Breath" and "State of Love and Trust," "Brother," "Just a Girl," "Evil Little Goat" and "2,000 Mile Blues
  • Jeff Ament and Andy Fischer's revamped artwork
  • A cassette of "Momma-Son," that early demo featuring "Alive," "Once" and "Footsteps"
  • The Sept. 20, 1992, concert at Magnuson Park (two vinyl LPs)
  • A replica of Vedder's composition notebook with notes, photos, and memorabilia
