2011-09-04 PJ20 Festival, Alpine Valley 2 (with HD, DVD, Blu-Ray)

This is an altogether new audience video, multi-camera edited, youtube based (only HD sources), audio stream is an audience bootleg, 29 songs of 33 included. This is my best and most complicated project so far, hope you like it.
Video is available in 4 variants, you may choose whatever suits you better:
1) 2Gb 848x480 WMV
2a) 4Gb HD 1280x720 h264 (compatible with 4Gb FAT32 limit)
2b) 6Gb HD 1280x720 WMV (highest picture quality variant)
3) 8GB 720x480 mpeg-2 DVD-DL
4) 22Gb HD 1280x720 mpeg-2 Blu-Ray
Best picture quality are HD variants 2b and 4. All variants had been encoded separately from one project, so it means that 2Gb variant is not compressed from Blu-Ray, but encoded from the same project as was the source for Blue-Ray.

As the weather improved from the first night, all things got lighter, the band and the guests got more relaxed and joyful. They played more rare songs for the delight of the audience. Eddie Vedder was so ecouraged that presented a new song, which he wrote in the morning that day. The song is still untitled and likely to stay "one-time-only" experience. Chris Cornell got his 4-songs set during encore 2. Reunited Temple Of The Dog band performed more songs from their catalogue, such as "Call Me A Dog" or "All Night Thing". Also Chris replayed "Reach Down", for he made some mistakes on the previous nigh and twanted to get it right. The entire show was full of jokes and good vibes, Ed was lavishly 'talkative'. The funniest moment was Eddie persuading Stone to play Stone's song "No Way". Stone was reluctant to play, but finally Stone yielded, with a shy smile on his face. Another moment of fun was again about Stone, showing up his hands like if they were the claws, about ups and downs of his long 25-years relationship with Jeff. Definitely it was an epic show!

1996-10-19 Bridge School Benefit 1 (with DVD)

A special night 1 at Bridge School. Pearl Jam played not only entirely acoustic set, but some songs  massively altered. My personal highlight is slow tempo "Corduroy" re-arranged in similar way and rate as "Lukin II" at 2010 MSG. The band was accompanied by an artist playing organ, much more skilled than Boom Gaspar nowdays, and he did really nice job flavouring all the songs.

This is a professional video of the entire show, picture quality is average, since the original source seems to never had been digital.

1996-10-01 Buffalo, NY

The show at Marine Midland Arena. During "Porch" jam a fan managed to sneak to the stage, and Eddie traded his shirt with him. After that the fan performed a spectacular dive into the audience, in Ed's shirt.

This is an audience single-camera video of the entire show, except "Animal" and the end of "Yellow Ledbetter".

Set: Oceans, Last Exit, Hail Hail, Spin The Black Circle, [Animal], Tremor Christ, In My Tree, Corduroy, Lukin, Better Man, Not For You, State Of Love And Trust, Rats, Jeremy, Off He Goes, Footsteps, Whipping, Immortality, Alive, Porch, Even Flow, Daughter, Blood (Heaven) (Fame), Present Tense, Yellow Ledbetter (not up to the end)

1996-09-28 Randall's Island, New York, NY 1

It was the show before a relatively large NYC crowd of 30000. Despite rain pouring down, people were overheated, and Ed had to interrupt "Whipping" because of the fight in the audience. Greatest moment of this show was "Even Flow" jam with a big stout man called John Popper playing harmonica solo.

This is an audience video of the full show. Few gaps in video stream (mostly between the songs) are filled with still stopped picture or blank screen as the sound plays on, but beginnings of "Animal", "Rearviewmirror" and "Even Flow" are omitted. Sound in "Alive" is partly lost. This is what I have. If you have better video, just let me know!

Set: Last Exit, Hail Hail, Animal, Spin The Black Circle, Red Mosquito, In My Tree, Lukin, Not For You, Better Man, Corduroy, Jeremy, Dissident, State Of Love And Trust, Black, Habit, Rearviewmirror, Alive, Blood (Noise of Carpet), Who You Are, Even Flow, Daughter, Whipping, Leaving Here, Indifference

1996-09-22 Toledo, Ohio (with DVD)


This really good show took place in a small venue before very devoted crowd. Ed was in beautiful vocal shape, and closed the show with memorable almost a-capella "Indifference". For "I Got Id" he messed up lyrics and had to restart the song.

This is an audience video of the full show, with very good sound. Picture quality is average VHS copy, couple of gaps between the songs are missing.

Set: Sometimes, Hail Hail, Animal, In My Tree, Spin The Black Circle, Corduroy, Last Exit, Better Man, Lukin, Not For You, Jeremy, Even Flow, Mankind, Daughter, Habit, I Got Id, Alive, Blood, Go, Who You Are, Rearviewmirror, Leaving Here, Indifference

1996-09-21 Toronto, Canada (with DVD)

This show at Maple Leaf Gardens was full of snippets. After "Daughter" Ed sang tags for three The Who songs: Cut My Hair, The Real Me and Young Man Blues. With "I Got Id" Eddie played a teaser of Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl" (and so he did in Toronto in 2006 and 2011).

These are 2 different audience videos of the full show: 1) avi variant good is multi-camera edited video with better sound, but video stream is not smooth, it looks as if it's 15 fps or something, although in reality it's 25 fps video; 2) DVD variant is smooth, but only a single-camera video. Picture quality for both variants is fairly the same and not good, though it's the common problem of 1996 recordings. Anyway you may try both variants and decide which one is better for you.

Set: Release, Hail Hail, Last Exit, Tremor Christ, In My Tree, Corduroy, Red Mosquito, Animal, Jeremy, Habit, Immortality, Even Flow, Not For You, Daughter (Cut My Hair) (The Real Me) (Young Man Blues), Lukin, Rearviewmirror, Alive, Blood, Who You Are, I Got Id, Leaving Here, Yellow Ledbetter

2012-07-05 Berlin, Germany 2 (with HD, DVD)

Second night in Berlin was the show about Mike McCready. He played a part of 'Eruption' solo before "Sad", and then he closed the show with a sort of 'Eruption' based "Yellow Ledbetter" solo. 'This is Miky Van Halen, mmm... Mike McCready right there!' - introduced him Ed. Another highlight was unexpected jam, when prior to "Corduroy" Ed faced some technical problems with his equipment. Other band members after short conversation played improvisational jam with some nice Mike's solo work. Never happened such an amazing live thing since many years, maybe since 90's when Pearl Jam often played live improv compositions. This jam was good, not short, and very smooth, so it could be considered as a piece of their rehearsal work for the new album. Why not?
Ed voice was getting better and better with each night, and Berlin-2 was not bad at all. Audience was very hot, restlessly crowd-surfing, so Ed two times for one show had to urge people in the pit to make steps back.

This is an audience video, youtube based (HD only sources), multi-camera edited (with Vegas Pro 11 as 720p), s-board audio (as for all 2012 shows), 3 songs missing, picture quality is average for couple of songs, good for the rest. Video is available as 720p HD, 480p and DVD-DL 480p. Best quality option is HD, as always.

Set: Oceans, Breakerfall, Animal, In Hiding, Small Town, (Jam), Corduroy, Amongst The Waves, Even Flow, (Eruption), Sad, Present Tense (with falstart), Down, Do The Evolution, Come Back, Go, Mother, Just Breathe, Nothingman, Better Man, Wasted Reprise, Life Wasted, Porch, Blood (War), Alive, Baba O'Riley, Yellow Ledbetter
