one of the best around... except it's too short!

Pearl Jam live rarely disappoints and this collection of songs straight from their first smash Ten (save for the State of Love and Trust song which you'll recognize if you've listened to enough rock radio over the years but for some idiotic reason was left off the album) is one of their classic shows. They're so into the swing of things, as are the audience, that nothing goes wrong. It's one of those cases where the only real flaw is a typical limitation of television: it's only 35 minutes long! Even on the recently re-release on DVD (it comes with the deluxe package of the Ten reissue) there are no extra songs, no extra pieces of fat like when Nirvana or Alice in Chains had their unplugged performances released. It is what is is, and gives the MTV folks perhaps TOO much time for commercials.

And yet, for 35 minutes, Pearl Jam fans or just anyone looking for a solid rock show get their minutes worth. We get, for example, one of the finest and most energetic performances of any song of the 90s, with their number Porch. But of course it's impossible to neglect the classics like Alive, Even Flow or Jeremy which after being played out on radio for so many years still pack a wallop when given the ferocity and harrowing spirit of the live performance. In fact just looking at Eddie Vedder's face is a show unto itself: he's a lead singer to rank with the greats, aside from the vocal power from projecting so much on his face (you don't know whether he'll kill someone, have an epileptic fit, or just pet a sheep), and he has a lot of joy in his performance, at one pointy riding a wave or something on his stool! This is what fans want to see, and circa 1992 the most versatile and perhaps just flat-out talented Seattle band deliver the goods. Seek this out!
