2005 Canadian Tour Compilation

Eddie started this tour at not his best vocal form, but improved show by show. So, vocally the best songs are to be found at the end of the tour. Also mark Winnipeg - it was the really nice show. Highlights for this tour are some funny band-audience interactions like "Let Stone sing!", or many other kinds of 'pearls', such as "sitar-like" jam on "Even Flow", 2005-only tag "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", Ed's solo presentation of "Gone" and more. Also this was a Ramones-tribute tour with some songs to remember, and don't forget that Canada is Neil Young's home land.

  2. Wishlist (tag: you've got to hear the truth)

2005 Latin American Tour Compilation

2005 Latin American tour is the first and the last one so far to visit Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Spanish and Portugeese speaking crowds are maybe the loudest singers in the world so this tour on stadiums is very special. No surprise that my compilation is full of chants and great singalongs - this was the main focus in song selection. The real pearls are It's Ok tag in Spanish (called Esta Bien) performed in Mexico and fantastic stadium crowd singing after Yellow Ledbetter in Buenos Aires.
As for the shows, my favorites are the ones in Santiago de Chile and Buenos Aires. Brazilian shows were even more intense, but plagued with Ed's vocal problems. After all South American madness Monterrey show was not the one to remember, but Mexico city audience performed as always well.
  1. Given To Fly
  2. Jeremy
  3. Improv (Santiago ole-ole)
  4. Better Man (Modern Girl)
  5. Black (We Belong Together)
  6. (Improv) Save You
  7. Interstellar Overdrive
  8. Not For You (Mexico chant)
  9. Daughter (Esta Bien)
  10. Untitled + MFC
  11. Kick Out The Jams (with Mudhoney)
  12. Rockin' In The Free World
  13. Yellow Ledbetter (Buenos Aires chant)

1995 Mirrorball Tour Compilation

In 1995 Pearl Jam had an interesting experience to serve as a backup band for Neil Young's album "Mirrorball". In summer Neil Young embarked on 11-date tour in Europe and Israel to promote this record, and his touring band consisted of Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, Jack Irons and Brendan O'Brien on keyboard (producer of many Pearl Jam albums). Only Eddie Vedder was not present.
Set-lists for this tour were pretty much the same. Only audience records exist. Making this compilation, I tried to avoid performances with a long exhausting 15-20 min jams and focused on achieving nice easy listenig. Of course, the great "Cortez The Killer" is on the list.
  1. Mr. Soul
  2. Peace And Love
  3. Scenery
  4. Don't Let It Bring You Down
  5. Mother Earth
  6. Cortez The Killer
  7. (band presentation)
  8. Powderfinger
