Pearl Jam Stream Entire Soundtrack To ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’
The upcoming documentary ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ will not only explore the untold story of the band, but it’s soundtrack is filled with select live tracks, rarities, and previously unreleased demos. You can stream the whole thing now ahead of it’s September 20th release date.
The double disc set for ‘Pearl Jam Twenty‘ plays more like a 29-track journey through the band’s lesser known material. The first disc is comprised of 14 live tracks that were handpicked by director Cameron Crowe. Among the bright spots are a rare performance of ‘Walk with Me’ featuring Neil Young, and perhaps the best version of ‘Betterman’ to date (except maybe for the one from the PJ20 festival)– which was taken from the Madison Square Garden DVD.
Disc two is one for the hardcore fans featuring unheard vault goodies like ‘Acoustic Demo #1′, and an unfocused (yet not so serious) cover of Alice in Chains‘ early track ‘It Ain’t Like That’. The disc also features early versions of Temple of the Dog tracks ‘Say Hello 2 Heaven’, ‘Times of Trouble’. In addition the disc includes original demos of ‘Nothing as it Seems’ with bassist Jeff Ament on vocals, and ‘Need to Know’ as recorded by drummer Matt Cameron — who’s lyrics were replaced on the song that eventually became ‘The Fixer’.
‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ is available starting September 20th, while the accompanying film will hit theaters the same day for one night only. The film will also be available on DVD and Blu-ray on October 25th.
