Recording Notes:
The included preset is generally not as good as hoped, but is the only known completed version. Some pops were removed.

Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
Unusual start with Ed's solo set and the SY guys joining him for 'Parting Ways.' When it is announced that Sonic Youth would not play and that PJ would start early, some people cheered. Ed comments on Sonic Youth's emergency and absence: "Sometimes it's kind of difficult to play music, believe it or not ... and tonight's kind of like one of those nights, but because of your presence here, it doesn't allow us any option but to play ... we'd probably listen to music to get through itanyway, so might as well listen to it together and play." 'Insignificance' is described as a song about "being small" and Ed motions above his head. 'Wishlist' is dedicated to a friend who isn't there and the mirrorball is lowered. For the second encore, Ed introduces the ukulele, holding it up and saying, "One of the original instruments of rock 'n' roll - and more importantly, heavy metal." He thanks people for registering to vote. He says that if people don't see the need for revolution then they aren't looking and mentions some corporations (dissing Bill Gates and Microsoft, saying 'Soon Forget' was written for him). He makes an analogy about the start of the Republican party and how they got Lincoln elected (and the slaves were freed) and the Green party, and apologizes: "enough from me." 'Soon Forget' is performed perfectly, after Ed asks the crowd to be quiet so they can hear the words. 'RITFW' gets a huge crowd reaction and Ed tosses out two tambourines, ending with crashing a third over the mic stand.

This is being distributed by in tandem with, and is part of a series of the best Pearl Jam shows in existance.
