Pearl Jam have just released expanded and restored editions of their classic 2nd and 3rd studio albums, VS. and Vitalogy. Both albums broke all initial Soundscan records and secured the band’s reputation as a preeminent force in American rock music.
Vs. and Vitalogy are now available in new Expanded Editions (featured three bonus tracks on each) or together in a three-disc Deluxe Edition (featuring Live at the Orpheum Theater, Boston, April 12, 1994) and Limited Edition Collector’s Box Set. Each album will also be released in new commemorative re-mastered vinyl editions on April 12th to coincide with Record Store Day 2011.
