IMPORTANT CHANGE TO TEN CLUB MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
DECEMBER 27 2018

Beginning January 1, 2019 the Ten Club Single will be discontinued.

We hope that you have enjoyed these special collectibles over the past 25+ years.

All members who purchased or renewed their membership in 2017 and/or 2018 will still receive the MP3 downloads of the Ten Club Single for those years. Members who purchased or renewed their membership at the Analog level in 2017 and/or 2018 will also receive the limited edition vinyl for those years once physical production is complete.

Pearl Jam and all of us at Ten Club appreciate the loyalty and dedication from our members. It has been amazing to watch the fan club evolve over the years into the tight-knit community it is today, and we’re excited to see what the future holds.

Thank you,

Pearl Jam & Ten Club

    Still not explained:  is the analog membership level being discontinued and if not, what will be the benefits of paying at a higher analog level with no vinyl single?

    How is this good? These are one of the things the 10 Club was based on, pretty sure everyone looked forward to it. I'd love a better explanation by them I think they owe us that

    I totally misread the email at first and thought the ten club was disbanding and my heart sank. Then when I realized it was about the single, I had this overwhelming feeling that I was old and another part of my youth was gone. I never stressed about the single, so I was always happy when it came. It’s a sad day but let’s hope there’s still a long road ahead for the band and its fans. They still matter and we need them now more than ever.

    Ok! Here comes my cancellation to auto-renew.
    The band should contemplate to retired, and focus to release their SBD/PRO A/V material.

  • to me the single was one of the big benefits of the analogue membership - having it removed without substitution feels very strange - I'll miss those!

    Woah... this is a little sad. I didn't mind the wait either. I loved collecting them. End of an era.
    But whatever the band needs to do to continue their longevity!

    When will the questions be answered that pops up amongst your fanclub members after a statement like this, that you know will arise when you put this out? January 10th? Or later? Good to know.

    I JUST (Dec. 12) renewed my analog membership.  I never minded the wait.  I will definitely not be renewing.  I don't care about the shirt, it was a bonus but not worth that price.

    I understand it's a pain and I'm sure this was discussed at 10C endlessly, but regardless, I am very disappointed.

    Super super sad, especially because I finally joined at the beginning of this year. I’m glad that they finally said something though.

    Hopefully this is the beginning of a new chapter of better communication between 10C and it’s members! I really really smhppw they’ll answer our questions on what analog benefits will be now, etc.

    "Viva la vinyl."  Et tu, Eddie?
    What a pathetic joke.  Why do I have a feeling I'm never going to see the physical singles that this message is promising "once physical production is complete"?

  • the end of an era. I have been collecting these, sans record player (I know, I know!) since 1996. I will continue to look forward to whatever form of music Pearl Jam grants members to have through our membership. I ain't going nowhere.

    Is there no way that Mike McCready's Hockeytalkter Records company could take over Pearl Jam's 10club annual Christmas 7" Single?
  • tenbobtenbob Posts: 66
    This Sucks! What happened to Viva la Vinyl? 
    Surely it’s not that hard to meet once a year to record 2 songs and then press some vinyl? Or just use live material like last couple have been.

    The band owns a few record labels. That would have already happened had they cared. 
  • Can't seem to find any follow-up E-mail about a decrease in membership renewal prices....

  • So what’s the discount on analog for next year? I assume you don’t just take away something and charge the same price. 

    Oh oh wait I bet that’s what happens. 
  • Jason PJason P Posts: 18,263
    Not a huge loss considering I can only think of a handful of times in the past 15 years that the single actually showed up on my doorstep.

    i don't think it's pressing the vinyl that's the issue. it's the band not wanting to record material they won't make money on. and i gotta be honest, it's surprising to me it took this long. songs on vinyl hasn't been an 'exclusive' since file sharing began in the late 90's. so the band is essentially giving music away for free to anyone that wants it.
