20 days of Pearl Jam: Day 3

Pearl Jam are hosting their PJ20 Destination Weekend in Alpine Valley, Wisconsin this weekend; PJ will be joined by The Strokes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mudhoney and almost 10 other acts.

You can stay up to date on all the happenings on Twitter here.

It’s Day 3 of the “20 Days of Pearl Jam Countdown” leading up to the release of the “Pearl Jam Twenty” film and soundtrack on September 20.

Today’s item is a video – provided by Record Store Day - with some guy in Seattle unveiling the goodies inside the “Pearl Jam Twenty” soundtrack. 29 rare and unreleased tracks, handpicked by filmmaker Cameron Crowe, are just a part of what’s waiting for Pearl Jam fans as part of the soundtrack.

It's not the most riveting video: they should have actually shown the contents up close – what you get is to be able to watch a guy open a CD….and that’s it. Really? Record Store Day couldn’t have spent any time shooting this in a more compelling way?

And, for some reason, Record Store Day and Vimeo think the content is so strong and unique that they have restricted embed access to the content – hardly in the spirit of what Pearl Jam represent, don’tcha think? Shameful.

If you want to spend 60-seconds watching a guy open a CD whose contents can’t actually be seen, click here...but you’ll enjoy the video below much more.

Links to Days 1 and 2 are below in the “See also” section.
