Pearl Jam Re-Issues Debut Album Ten With 4 Different Special Edition Packages

This announcement has The Blot all kinds of excited. As you all know by now, The Blot is obsessed with Pearl Jam. They’ve been my favorite band since I first heard Ten way back in 1991 (as a sprout 12 year old I might add). According to PearlJam.com, “the reissue of Ten serves as the launch of a planned two-year catalogue re-release campaign leading up to the band’s 20th anniversary in 2011.” (link) There will be four different special edition packages of the Ten re-issue, each with a different price and a corresponding number of extras included.

The four Ten re-issue special edition packages will hit stores on March 24, 2009 but for all you die hard fans you can pre-order the 2008 Ten Super Deluxe Edition here for $140.00 (which includes free shipping anywhere in the U.S.). It’s the largest of the four deluxe editions and includes everything they could come up with. While I’d love to get my hands on one of these bad boys, the price is a little much for me. I think I’ll just be going for the Deluxe Edition, which also includes a DVD of Pearl Jam’s previously unreleased 1992 MTV Unplugged performance. I’ve been dying for a legit copy of their Unplugged performance for years and won’t be passing up on a chance to finally own it!
