[antiquiet.com] Check out a thrilling little taste of what Pearl Jam fans can expect when the Vs/Vitalogy reissue box sets arrive in our hot little nostalgic hands next month. Bassist Jeff Ament leads a quick discussion on the band’s ideas for the box set reissues of PJ’s second and third albums, set for a March 29 release. Check out the video HERE.
As previously reported, the highly anticipated updated releases, remastered by Adam Ayan, are set to coincide with Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary celebration. Accompanying will be a feature retrospective film (directed by Cameron Crowe), a festival weekend getaway for fans and other unearthed musical gems.
Expected in the reissue packages are remastered albums, live performances, a cassette from the band’s Monkeywrench radio series, a composition notebook (similar to those which frontman Eddie Vedder pens his lyrics) and a memorabilia-filled envelope. Extended versions of the reissues are planned as well, which will include Record Store Day vinyl editions for each album. The limited edition collector’s box set will feature a double vinyl LP and CD of Live at the Orpheum Theater, Boston, April 12, 1994 plus an exclusive digital download of the concert.
