2010 US Tour Compilation

2010 US Tour started off in New Orleans and ended up with two Madison Square Garden shows. The band was fantastic, Ed showed his peak vocal form and audience support was terrific. Even in Kansas City it was surprisingly loud audience and in Hartford, Boston and New York people completely screamed their lungs out. So I think it was the one of the best Pearl Jam tours ever. Every show of the tour was great, but the very best was Madison Square Garden 2 and maybe MSG1 and Boston. Hartford was extremely loud and my favorite set-list show is Newarc.
This tour provided so many special performances that I had nothing to do but to create a long show-emulating compilation with three peaks and two sections to drop off some pressure. Check for completely re-arranged slow version of Lukin, altered tags for Better Man and Black, alternative ending riffs for Daughter, Alive and Porch (for the last two songs it was the same riff played). As always, some great covers including legendary Hunger Strike (from MSG2) with Ben Bridwell from Band Of Horses.

  2. Why Go
  3. Once

Vitalogy Live

Vitalogy sounds great live. Many songs differ from their album sisters quite significantly. Nowdays Better Man has got very long outtro, Mike likes to improvise playing Immortality. Nothingman has become a campfire song with damn loud audience singalongs, Better Man is even louder, Corduroy and Not For You also greatly evolved.
I was always unsure about songs order for this compilation, changed it couple of times and now this is a new, almost perfect version. But I still haven't found my favorite performance of Better Man (as criteria of the "best" version evolves in my mind), so the song with the full tag of Save It For Later would be here for some time. Same for both versions of Not For You with different tags (the last one is a proper one to close this compilation).
  1. Whipping
  2. Last Exit
  3. Spin The Black Circle
  4. Corduroy
  5. Tremor Christ
  6. Better Man (Save It For Later)
  7. Not For You (Modern Girl)
  8. Nothingman
  9. Immortality (acoustic)
  10. Bugs
  11. Satan's Bed
  12. Out Of My Mind
  13. Not For You (improv tag: love that remains)
Updated to ver. 1.03 (2012-12-13): Replaced "Better Man".
