Pearl Jam Offers Free Streaming Preview of ‘PJ20′ Soundtrack
In conjunction with Pearl Jam's forthcoming Cameron Crowe directed documentary 'PJ20' comes the companion two-disc soundtrack of the same name. The 'PJ20' soundtrack -- a career-spanning collection of live recordings, rarities and unreleased tracks -- doesn't hit stores until Tuesday (Sept. 20), but it's currently streaming in its complete form here.
Boldly kicking things off with the 'Ten' album's final track 'Release' and moving on from there, the set includes rarities like 'Walk With Me' with Neil Young, a cover of 'Say Hello 2 Heaven' by Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament's pre-PJ band Mother Love Bone, a demo version of 'Nothing as it Seems' and a delicately gorgeous previously unreleased tune simply titled 'Acoustic 1.' Check it out, you won't regret it.
Meanwhile, 'PJ20' movie director Crowe told Rolling Stone "We went about as personal as we could get" when making the flick, which doesn't avoid difficult subjects like the fatal heroin overdose of Mother Love Bone's Andrew Wood or the tragic trampling deaths of nine fans during the band's set at Denmark's Roskilde Festival in 2000.
