    Like other posters have mentioned, Man of Golden Words is good. This is Shangri-La, and Star Dog Champion for starters. Bone China is also good in my opinion. I would just download the whole album, give it a listen, and see what sticks.

    I still have my fingers crossed that one day PJ will cover MLB's Man Of Golden Words.

    Cornell does it acoustic and tags it with Comfortably Numb. I'm hoping to hear it again 2 weeks from today :thumbup:

    Same here!!!

    With you 100% on that. Such a good song, wonder if it was in the pipeline for album #2? Far too good to have remained unreleased forever.

  • I'm glad I picked up the deluxe set. It deserves more chatter on here than it gets or has gotten.

    Exactly - man there are some killer grooves on that recording. 
    MLB was a phenomenal band. They'll always be one of my favorites.

    ^^Totally agree with you guys, the MLB reissue was way cooler than the TOTD one but didn't get nearly as much buzz.

    I liked the ToTD one better.   The MLB big reissue seemed to have the same songs as the reissue a few years before that (in fact I think the original reissue a few years back has 2 extra songs on the vinyl).   I liked the fact the ToTD one came with video, especially the bluray of the pj20 ToTD reunion. 

    Like ToTD's music more than MLB though.   I'm a little biased.

    ToTD had Mike. Mother Love Bone didn't, so that's a big advantage when comparing the two. But MLB has some great songs. Chloe/Crown and This Is Shangri-La are both awesome. I remember hearing Stardog Champion on the radio after Andy died but before we knew what Pearl Jam was. If events had unfolded differently I doubt I would have fallen in love with them the way I did PJ but they are a fun band to revisit today.
