Alive Coming to Record Store Day

To celebrate their 30th Anniversary and Record Store Day, Pearl Jam will be releasing TWO Alive singles on July 17th.  

The first is a 12" single, that appears to be different than any previous release.  (18,500 copies)
The 12” features the original promo single version of “Alive” plus three rare b-sides: “Wash”, “Dirty Frank” and the Beatles’ cover “I’ve Got A Feeling”, which is currently not available anywhere else. All four tracks are included on side A while side B contains an etching of the band’s Stick Man logo.

Side A: 1. “Alive (promo single version)” 2. “Wash” 3. “I’ve Got A Feeling” 4. “Dirty Frank”
Side B: Etching
The second is a cassette single, replicating an original promo single. The closest thing already in existence is the 1991 Australian release. (6,300 copies)
The “Alive” cassette single is a replica of the promo cassette that was originally used around the album’s release. It includes the promo single version of “Alive” plus “Wash” and “I’ve Got A Feeling”, repeated on both sides.

Side A: 1. “Alive (promo single version)” 2. “Wash” 3. “I’ve Got A Feeling”
