Pearl Jam Keep It Analog

June 15, 2016
Before their recent headline appearance at the Bonnaroo Festival, Pearl Jam performed a surprise show at Jack White's Third Man Records - and with White himself joining the band on stage, too.

Pearl Jam recorded their performance direct-to-acetate in front of 200 fans in Nashville On June 9. Third Man's Live Series records live performances onto one-inch 8-track tape which is eventually used to cut the vinyl master thus ensuring the recording remains in the analog domain and is never transferred to a digital signal.
