Long Road displays Pearl Jam's ability slow it down a bit and make really beautiful music.
I don't really think these 2 songs quite mesh with any of their full lengths in style. But this cd is a must for anyone who likes Pearl Jam, in my opinion... the versions released on the live cds still don't compare to these recordings.
It's a subject he would revisit in later years, ( Light Years ) but this release, in between Vitalogy and No Code is a perfect mark for the 2nd phase of Pearl Jam's work. Neil Young lends his experience to both songs, as Mike + Stone did not play on either track. It's a release that is probably owned by most dedicated Pearl Jam fans, it's a release that should be in all homes.
As for the songs, both are tremendous in every single way and seriously under-rated.
«I Got ID» (also known as «I Got Sh*t») is a very emotional and strong song, much to the style of Eddie Vedder in Pearl Jam's earlier years. Ed's raw and angry voice contrasts with beautiful lyrics and music, producing an amazing and inspiring song. I really lack words to describe this song and to be very honest, it's one of the best and deepest songs I have ever heard and I don't say this any often, so you can see how I feel about this song.
«Long Road» is not as under-rated as «I Got ID», but still is very unknown for the 'common audience'. This is also a truly amazing song and I cannot pick which of the two is best.A very intimate, calm and beautiful song and I just can't pick which of the two I like the most. A pearl for the band's fans. This songs has also been re-recorded with the World Music pakistani artist, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, to feature on Dead Man Walking's soundtrack (this version is significantly longer) and later, in 2001, for the benefit album «America: A Tribute to Heroes» (in a beautiful acoustic version, featuring Eddie Ceddr, Mike McCready and Neil Young=.
If you like Pearl Jam, I strongly suggest you to go and get this single. Even though it only has two songs, it's perfectly worth purchasing since these songs, especially when combined in one record, are true pearl's of the 90's music scene (and these versions of both songs can't be found elsewhere).

I had to buy this again because someone borrowed it and didn't return. That is heart-wrenching for such a frugal maggot as myself, but these tracks are worth the added expense.Published 16 months ago by A. Rutherford

first track skipped a lot, unplayable. Disc has no marks, looks brand new so maybe recording was off. Very disappointed.Published on December 10, 2012 by janice

This two song CD is really a hidden jem of the complete Pearl Jam collection. In my opinion, the slow and dark, "Long Road", is the outstanding piece off this release. Read morePublished on June 29, 2007 by Scottie73
