Top Ten Pearl Jam Moments of 2022, #7


This year we were excited to get two Pearl Jam compilations reissued.  First, and possibly most exciting, Live on Two Legs got a Record Store Day release on clear vinyl.  This was the first time that album was available on vinyl in almost 25 years.  If you can find a copy in your local record store bins, don't hesitate, it contains some of the greatest Pearl Jam performances to date.

The other reissue was a new release of Rearviewmirror: Greatest Hits 1991-2003.  Previously release in 2004 as a 4-LP set, the album has now been split into two volumes, Volume 1 (the "Up" side), with fast paced rockers, and Volume 2 (the "Down" side), with slower songs.  Both volumes are still available as Walmart exclusives on either black vinyl or with a colored vinyl option.
