Well look what has just turned up – the latest in the TMR Vault releases (and my first one ever due to the band in question). The first thing I notice, is that Third Man Records don’t do discreet, with a nicely branded TMR record mailer to protect whatever gems lay inside.
Third Man Records Vault #29 represents my first foray into the TMR subscription service – and for good reason – as it is the first TMR vs Pearl Jam collaboration,recorded just before their Bonnaroo headline set earlier this year.
So to the contents, and I will start with the records, as that is the whole point of this blog. The main part of the package is of course the 12″. Dissapointingly it only comprises of 8 tracks, but on the plus side it is a beautiful gold (translucent orange) black 50/50 split disc house in a super stiff gatefold sleeve. The sleeve features metallic printing.
Next up, is the “record booth recorded” 7″. A single side clear record that features Eddie Vedder performing ‘out of sand’.
