16 Songs, 1 Hour 15 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Live at the Orpheum Theater, Boston, April 12, 1994 was originally issued as the bonus live album that accompanied the three-disc expanded edition of Vs. and Vitalogy. That show—recorded just a week after Kurt Cobain's death—features covers of Dead Boys’ “Sonic Reducer” (with Mudhoney’s Mark Arm) and Neil Young’s “F***in’ Up,” as well as early versions of “Immortality” (with mostly different lyrics), “Not for You,” and “Tremor Christ,” which would appear on Vitalogy later in the year. The setlist was assembled by the road crew and is considered by serious Pearl Jam fans as a special night on the band’s limited tour. (Pearl Jam were battling against playing arenas and using Ticketmaster.) This was the third and final show in Boston and by far the smallest. (The previous two shows were at the 15,000-seat Boston Garden, as opposed to the 2,700-seat Orpheum Theater.) The band are in explosive form throughout: young, hungry, and determined to make a difference.
