Pearl Jams Preps Live Album
Eddie Vedder and crew cull 76 tunes for Live at the Gorge 05/06.
Seattle’s alt-rock stalwarts Pearl Jam have collected 76 tunes from performances at Washington State’s scenic Gorge Amphitheatre over the last two years for Live at the Gorge 05/06, a seven-disc album dropping June 26 courtesy of Pearl Jam’s own Monkeywrench imprint, Billboard.com reports. The collection features material from online bootleggers’ favorite performances — Sept. 1, 2005, and July 22-23, 2006 — the former, the band’s first Gorge appearance in over 12 years, which Pearl Jam opened with a nine-song acoustic set, including classics like “Off He Goes,” “Crazy Mary,” and “Black.”
Fans can now pre-order a limited edition box set of Live at the Gorge 05/06, which includes an exclusive four postcard set showcasing images from event posters and album art, via pearljam.com. Details regarding a complete tracklisting have yet-to-be announced. A band spokesperson was unavailable for comment at press time.
