space

Fans of grunge should be delighted to learn that during its 20th anniversary year the excellent Temple Of The Dog album is available on MP3 as part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 Album Deals.

Following the death of Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell wanted to put together a tribute to his late friend. The roots of grunge behemoth Pearl Jam are here with Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard finally joining up with future Pearl Jam bandmates Eddie Veddar, Mike McCready and Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron (who is now Pearl Jam’s drummer). The result was this: the eponymous album Temple Of The Dog.

MP3 Album Deal: Pearl Jam’s ‘Ten’

Pearl Jam - Ten

The MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon today is Pearl Jam‘s 1991 debut album Ten for only $3.99.

Math time: Typically, MP3 songs sell for $.99 each, which means in order for the $3.99 MP3 sale to be worth it for the buyer, there has to be at least four songs on the album worth having. In my opinion, every song on this album is awesome, but here’s a few: There’s the hits “Even Flow,” “Alive,” and “Jeremy”; throw in any other song on the album (e.g., “Black,” “Why Go,” “Porch,” “Garden”) and there’s your justification for shelling out a mere 4 bucks for 12 songs.

The album is also available on CD for only $6.99.

While on a flight recently, I caught an airing of VH1 Rock Honors – The Who, a 2008 tribute concert to the British classic rock band that featured performances by Incubus, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Flaming Lips, Adam Sandler, and Tenacious D. The surviving members of The Who — singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend — also performed their hits “Baba O’Riley,” “Who Are You,” “Behind Blue Eyes,” and “My Generation.”

The entire concert is actually online at VH1, and you can watch it all here below.

Continuing with the twentieth anniversary celebrations for grunge-lords Pearl Jam, this year will see the release of the documentary Pearl Jam Twenty.

Director Cameron Crowe, who burst onto the movie scene with his brilliant indie debut Fast Times At Ridgemont High and also directed award-winning movies Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous, was given full access to the band. Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready said the director would have free reign over “….all our footage, with all of our existing footage that we have.”

There will also be a book and soundtrack album to accompany the documentary.

Pearl Jam
Live On Ten Legs
Monkeywrench
Released January 17 (UK) January 18 (U.S.: CD | MP3) 2011

I hate Pearl Jam. I’ve spent many hours on my guitar trying to sound as good as Stone Gossard and Mike McCready. I gave up a long time ago trying to play the bass like Jeff Ament and I have as much chance of being a better drummer than Matt Cameron as I have of finding a voice like Eddie Vedder in my armpit. I find them sickeningly good and I can barely stand it.

Of course, I am joking about my ‘hatred’: I adore Pearl Jam. This year Pearl Jam has lined up a list of surprises to coincide with the 20th anniversary of its debut album, Ten. To kick things off comes the release of new live album, Live On Ten Legs. Recorded at various concerts during 2003-2010 and at 18 tracks long it’s a good collection of Pearl Jam songs with at least one track from all of its back catalogue (with the exception of No Code).
