Pearl Jam Reissue Details Trickling Out

with one comment

We’ve previously covered the forthcoming wave of Pearl Jam reissues from Legacy, this time pertaining to the band’s second and third LPs Vs. (1993) and Vitalogy (1995). It seems that these sets might be closer to stores than previously known, thanks to some Amazon listings.

The retailer has March 29 dates for expanded editions of each album, as well as a box that looks to collate both of them with possible additional material. (This clears up a bit of confusion from a Rolling Stone story that seemed to suggest that there would indeed be a box set of both albums in one package.) Interestingly, there are provisional track listings attached to each page (well, attached to the Vs. and deluxe box set pages, at least) that indicate at least three bonus tracks for each of the albums. Vs. will have three non-LP songs (at least two of which were previously released in some form) while Vitalogy will feature three alternate versions of songs from the original LP.

Presumably, the deluxe box (which has nice-looking packaging) will feature a wealth of riches on par with the Ten box released in 2009. Assuming that’s the case, you might want to place a pre-order; the box is priced shockingly low – at just over $35 as of this writing. Information is certainly still to come on these sets, so tune in to The Second Disc to be ready when it arrives!

  1. Once again, not much extras to make it worth re-purchasing.
