Pearl Jam, who have released live recordings of most shows dating back to 2000, have teamed up with nugs.net to release every performance from the Seattle rockers’ recent 14-show European Tour through nugs’ LiveDownloads.com portal in a number of formats (CD, MP3, FLAC, ALAC, FLAC-HD and ALAC-HD). Each multi-track recording was mixed by longtime Pearl Jam recording engineer Brett Eliason and have been mastered for CD. For audiophiles, the FLAC-HD and ALAC-HD files are sourced from uncompressed, non-limited 24 bit / 96KHz mixes.
The band will unveil one show each week following yesterday’s release of the first Pearl Jam show of 2012 from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England on both LiveDownloads.com and PearlJam.com. Also, look for goodies from Pearl Jam’s archives to appear on both sites in the coming months. Pearl Jam has three U.S. festival appearances (Made In America, DeLuna and Music Midtown) as well as a headlining show in Missoula, Montana scheduled for September.
