Pearl Jam Launch Massive Live Archive Site
Deep spans two decades, 186 shows and 5,404 individual tracks
Published May 07, 2021Always ones willing to share, Pearl Jam are updating their past with a massive new undertaking called Deep — an online hub that will serve as the new digital home to the band's seriously massive archive of live recordings.
Launched today, Deep features a digital collection of music from 186 live shows that include 5,404 individual tracks. It spans two decades of Pearl Jam concerts, featuring bootlegs from fan favourite tours during 2000, 2003, 2008 and 2013, among others.
A press release lays things out like this:
By accessing this hub, fans may search their favourite shows by category and listen to fan-curated playlists, including "Best of" Tours, "Covers," a politically charged playlist "Know Your Rights" & many more. Deep will enable easier discoverability across the catalog and allow newer audiences to experience the best of the band suited directly to their personal preferences. Each live bootleg on Deep has the added bonus of show descriptions written by Ten Club superfans adding a personal fan story to each and every record.
There's also a something called the Custom Setlist Generator, which allows you to create your own PJ setlist. "By inputting your name and birthday, you can receive a custom streamable setlist playlist and setlist graphic generated in Eddie's instantly recognizable handwriting for sharing across your social media," the press release explains.
It adds: "The Setlist also transforms into a streamable, custom playlist that has the added bonus of various Ten Club superfans written personal descriptions for the bootlegs, adding a personal fan story to each and every record."
