PJ Bootlegs ...

Since I raved about how cool Live Phish is a while back, I thought I just must rave about Pearl Jam's similar service.

Riding in this morning to work, blasting CDs of the Pearl Jam show I was at two weeks ago, I was grinning. I JUST went to this show and already have fully mastered high quality CDs of the show. How cool!

Pearl Jam in the past has been releasing CDs of all of their concerts from their tours for the last few years. This tour they decided to do it on the fly. They opened up Pearl Jam Bootlegs where you are able to order any of the shows from the current tour right away.

I did this a week before the show I went to. A few days after the show, I got an e-mail with a link to un-mastered low quality MP3s of the show. Even though these were supposed to be low quality and were un-mastered, they sounded damn good. Yesterday, when I got home I had a package waiting for me, which had fully mastered high quality CDs of the same show.

Totally digging this service. I wish more bands did cool stuff like this. Now, I just have to go back in and get the other MA shows, as Pearl Jam pretty much played everything they know how to play between the 3 MA shows :)
