Product Description


Seventy-one minutes of live Pearl Jam plus an unreleased song? It's aural nirvana for fans of the reclusive, integrity-driven Seattle quintet. Pearl Jam are nothing if not passionate and unabashedly rocking, and this 16-track offering, recorded during their Yield tour, illustrates why the mumbly voiced rock deity and his band of merry men inspire such ardor in their followers. Eddie Vedder's emotive vocals, Mike McCready and Stone Gossard's raw and raging fretwork and edgy, catchy, whisper-to-a-scream dynamics are deftly and inspiringly captured. Though a few staples (including "Jeremy") are missing, songs running the gamut of the band's seven-year career--from "Corduroy" to "Nothingman" to the Neil Young-penned "F*ckin' Up"--more than make up for any exclusions. The breadth and scope found on Live on Two Legs (a take on the Queen song, "Death on Two Legs"?) proves the once über-"alternative" Pearl Jam have struck a loud chord in the mainstream...and that's not a bad thing. --Katherine Turman

This Pearl Jam live album was recorded during the Yield tour in 1998. At the time like everyone else I was disappointed by the setlist because it didn't have some of their bigger hits (Animal, Jeremy, etc) Years later I have stopped lamenting what should have been on here and focus on the great songs that are on here.
1. Corduroy. Great song from Vitalogy. Starts this live album off right.
2. Given to Fly. My favorite of all Pearl Jam songs. Taken from the Yield album this live version soars and gives me chills. Amazing song.
3. Hail Hail. Great fast paced rock song taken from No Code.
4. Daughter. An acoustic driven song that has a special addition part added on while played live. Taken from Vs.
5. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town. Another acoustic song taken from Vs. One of the better tunes to sing along too.
6. Untitled. This song is not from an album and can be considered as the intro to MFC.
7. MFC. Good midpaced rocker taken from the Yield album.
8. Go. This is a really fast punkish song taken from Vs. One of my favorites.
9. Red Mosquito. Great opening guitar and really good song from the No Code album.
10. Evenflow. Hit song from Ten. The guitar interplay and solos are wonderful.
11. Off He Goes. Great acoustic song from No Code.
12. Nothingman. Another acoustic singalong from Vitalogy.
13. Do the Evolution. Fast paced punk rocker that really scorches. Taken from Yield.
14. Betterman. Big hit off of Vitalogy. Starts slow and acoustic before they crank up the amps.
15. Black. Perhaps the greatest version ever recorded. Taken from Ten.
16. F*ckin Up. Neil Young cover. Great album closer.
This is a realy good CD to start your Pearl Jam collection. I reccomend getting all of their albums.

Known by its fans for its stunning live performances and having flooded the market with seemingly endless (146 as of now) live albums, selecting a live Pearl Jam record can be a bit of a chore. "Live on Two Legs" has two distinctions the other live work doesn't-- it's the only live record from the 1998 tour and its a compilation of shows rather than a single show.

What does this mean? Simply put, the performances are stunning start to finish-- there's no flub ups, there's no forgotten lyrics, and there's no songs that feel a bit flat. But with that, there's a sort of lack of coherence in performance-- Pearl Jam is one of the few bands that's translated well from a live act to record BECAUSE their live albums don't edit out the goof ups, the crowd chats, and so on, well, except for this one. But because it's a compilation, it is rather well polished.

Still, it's a good set-- fantastic perforamnces of, among others, "Daughter" (featuring parts of "Rocking in the Free World" and "W.M.A." on the tag), the "Untitled"/"MFC" suite boils and blows over, and "Do the Evolution" is always just a monster at the live shows. And with each album that was then-available represented (with four from the then new "Yield", three each from "Vs." and "Vitalogy", and a pair each from "No Code" and "Ten"), fans of any of the material are likely to be happy.

Still, I'd check out any of the commercially available 2003 shows (particularly the mostly acoustic Benaroya Hall show) before this one, but if you're nervous about where to jump in and want a polished but somewhat inauthentic feel for the band's live show, this might be a good place to look.

The songs on this live CD were performed amazingly well. New bass lines, endings and guitar solos turned old songs into new power. I did have a couple problems with this CD however, the main one being I thought the selection of songs was not that great. There were a lot of songs that were too soft to really rock the house off on the album. The only other thing that bugged me was poor sound quality. Any true Pearl Jam fan that does not get this is making a mistake but for newcomers I would reccomend holding off until you are more aquintated to the band.

I went to see them on the tour this album was taken from and can honestly say I've never seen them more at ease with themselves. Of all their albums, and there's not a bad one in the bunch, I find myself listening to this one most. Where the albums themselves go for certain moods, this one just goes for energy and has it in spades. I'm really glad they chose to use many of the songs that weren't hits, per se, but were more represetnative of who they are as a band. If anyone remembers, the band put out a three disc import set of live material consisting of just about everything from the first two albums, no need to rehash those songs when they have moved so far ahead in songwriting. All things considered, it just rocks.

Live On Two Legs (1998.), the Pearl Jam's first live CD release

During the 1990's, the Pearl Jam released some remarkable and classic material. However, after the release of their critically acclaimed fifth album, 'Yield', in February 1998, the one thing the band lacked was an official live release. However, this all changed during the band's tour to support the Yield album. The tour, as the band themselves agreed, was a resounding and extremely fulfilling success for all involved so, as a result, the band decided to have their first shot at producing a official live CD towards the end of the tour, with the release of 'Live On Two Legs'. Due to this, loads of fans of the band, especially those who had never seen the Pearl Jam live before, had an opportunity to hear them live on CD.

The 'Live On Two Legs' CD, without question is a capture of an exceptional live performance from the Pearl Jam. I myself am a massive fan of the Pearl Jam and own a lot of their studio albums, however I was unsure about how well they translated live until I bought this album. Like other legendary bands, the Pearl Jam are simply awesome live and in many parts their performances sound just as flawless as the studio recordings for the albums! This is over 70 minutes of Pearl Jam greatness to put it mildly. The band do a perfect selection of stuff from all their five albums which they had released by Nov. 1998 when this CD was first released. Each of the first five albums gets a 2/3 track representation plus there are a couple of other songs including a new song, written by Neil Young called 'F*ckin' Up'.
