Dave Abbruzzese and Jeff Ament are the highlights here. PJ has always had great drummers, and I have a newfound appreciation for Abbruzzese in particular after listening to this particular recording. Ament also sounds magnificent here, which I guess is in part due to his performance on the night, and in part due to Brendan O’Brien’s magical production. Brendan would be my third "star" of this album. He makes this album come to life, resulting in performances which are almost indistinguishable from their studio iterations. Eddie, Cready, and Stone are their normal solid selves, but Abru and Ament are the standouts, along with O’Brien’s amazing production work.

This is not the Vault #1 CD from PJ20. That was Live at the Moore Theater. This is from the reissue. There are 21 songs total, so you don’t get every song. Missing gems like Hard to Imagine, Alone and Dirty Frank.

by SMSimon - 29/11/2016
This was the first release in the Pearl jam Vault Series and was intially only given out to Ten Club members at PJ20, on September 3rd & 4th. This incldues themy favorite version of "Sonic Reducer" and also includes "Immortality" and "Not For You" with their original lyrics. I’m quite surprised to see this being offered on iTunes and highly recommend you purchase this immediately if you’re reading this.
