[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pearl Jam[/lastfm] has revealed a few new details about the upcoming re-release of their early hit records Vs. and Vitalogy.
While speaking with Rolling Stone, the band’s manager Kelly Curtis said that they will issue both albums separately and also bundled in a three-disc collection.
“When we put out the Ten box-set a few years ago we had enough content to justify the cost of a box-set,” Curtis explained. “We didn’t have enough content this time, so we put the two albums together so there’s value for the fans.”
The new edition of Vs. will include a previously unreleased track titled “Creedy Stomp,” along with several other rare gems. Bassist Jeff Ament says that the outtakes come out of a fertile time for the band.
“The first two weeks we were making Vs. we were pretty cranked up and we were writing music faster than Ed could write lyrics,” Ament told Rolling Stone. “That was a pretty solid piece of music that Ed didn’t get to. Mike McCready came up with the riff. It’s a powerhouse song that showcases Dave Abbruzzese on drums quite a bit.”
