Years before they began recording and releasing their every live utterance, Pearl Jam’s first live album came in the form of three import EPs. The original discs were released separately – the first coming in a handsome fold out cardboard case that would hold all three discs, if you bought the next two. Now that’s marketing. It worked because this live show, recorded at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre on April 3rd, 1994, was a living testament to Pearl Jam’s fully developed stage prowess and the blockbuster material on their first two albums, Ten and Vs. The first track is the studio version of “Dissident,” the next 22 comprise almost all of the Atlanta show, as mixed by Brendan O’Brien. All three are at Amazon (HERE), (HERE) & (HERE). The first one goes for pennies, the other two do not.
