We’re in the awkward post-tour stage where Ed Ved and Co. are no longer on tour (at least in this country), but the official bootlegs aren’t out yet. Well, thank goodness for YouTube, audience bootlegs, and (more recently) PJ Radio bringing us the songs we want immediately after the shows. I know it’s childish to need this much this soon, but at this point in their touring career, every show packs with it such unbelievable energy and excitement and one can’t wait to relive it.
So these aren’t the official bootlegs, but they’re not far off. (Thanks, Yonah!) Due to copyright concerns, I’m only going to stream these tracks. But that’s ok – they’re awesome enough for you to stick around and listen.
Pearl Jam – Hunger Strike (MSG II)
Pearl Jam – Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love (Hartford)
