FINALLY! Vs. and Vitalogy 20th Anniversary Editions

The Ten Club has officially announced the release of the Vs. and Vitalogy reissues.  The remastered albums are coming to us in any of SIX different editions.  It makes the Analog/Digital decision look like a walk in the park.  The official release date is March 29th, except for the vinyl which will release on Record Store Day, April 12th.  


All versions are available for presale.  Fanboys are surely going to lament the fact that six songs have been left off of the Opheum show (we don't know which songs yet), but if you preorder now, you can get a digital download of the full show to compliment your box.  Read more about what to expect below.
WHAT BONUS TRACKS ARE WE GETTING?
  • a previously unreleased acoustic version of "Hold On" (Vs.)
  • "Cready Stomp" - a previously unreleased studio outtake (Vs.)
  • the band's cover of Victoria Williams' "Crazy Mary" featuring Williams on backing vocals and guitar (Vs.)
  • the previously unreleased guitar/organ-only mix of "Betterman" (Vitalogy)
  • a previously unreleased alternate take of "Corduroy," recorded by Brendan O'Brien (Vitalogy)
  • a previously unreleased demo version of "Nothingman," taken from the original DAT, recorded at John and Stu's in Seattle on October 14, 1993, featuring Richard Stuverud on drums (Vitalogy)
