    Will we get a reissue for Record Store Day on Black Friday for the 25th anniversary?

    I didn't think it was that hard to find one of the original 7" 's?

    Would still like a new one. And also do a CD one also. Would like this to be celebrated either way. Maybe Mirrorball as well

    Long Road was the first song I ever saw Pearl Jam play live. It's very special to me for that reason, and I loved the song anyway. Will have it at my funeral (hopefully whoever is able to find it and not play another song instead LOL). Apologies for morbidity-thankfully seem ok healthwise (well if I stay home during these times haha).

    What ARE the odds on Merkinball being rereleased for Record Store Day one day? Sounds like a good idea.
    Stars are suns to other people.

    Ed's story of how it came to be at whatever the show was was amazing, best intro to a song ever.

    How he was strumming the chord over and over, amd the band juat came in without prompting and just started playing......  San Diego some year about an old teacher Clayton dying.

    5 min in story starts, then video cuts, so someome else find the full video

    I suppose, but given that used ones of both the cd and vinyl are pretty cheap, I don't think there would be a lot of demand for a repress.   It's something that's already in most peoples collection, and easily obtainable for those that didn't.  Probably because it came out during PJ's hey day, and thus lots of copies were sold.  The odds of the band putting the effort into rereleasing something that doesn't need it are slim?

    unless.... there are more than two songs from that recording session?  If there's some hidden extra tracks, an extended version would sell.

    Or release Mirrorball with those 2 songs. I don't have my cd anymore. And I never had the vinyl

    There is a picture of Ed's handwritten lyrics and even that is indecipherable. I really need to know what he is saying in the "And I'll_____ " part. What exactly is a "blue eyed scene"??  Learning that the lyrics were "Walked in light" and not "Walked the line" was  a revelation to me, and an improvement.
