Step out on the porch to discuss Pearl Jam's music, tour, appearances, causes they support, etc. It's all about Pearl Jam here.
Really like the studio cover of "Wishing Well" by Free from way back... and I also like Eddie doing "Naked Eye"..
I'm gone ..Long gone..This time I'm letting go of it all...So long...Cause this time I'm gone

Sonic Reducer, RITFW, Baba, Gimme Some Truth, Hide Your Love Away...All fantastic covers. Lately I have been really enjoying the shit out of "American in Me, Arms Aloft, and Public Image" I also dig "Driven to Tears" When they played this at the Gibson 10/1/09 I was blown away. Such a great song!!
Seen the Best Rock Band on the Planet a few times here and there.

Lately I just CAN'T get enough of Masters of War from Bob Dylans 25 anniversary show......Can't play it often enough or loud enough(your welcome neighbors)....Ed's voice in one of it's best showcases I think...Makes the hair on my neck stand up...LOVE that feeling
I will walk w/my hands bound
I will walk w/my face blood
I will walk w/my shadow flag
Memories back when she was smooth and strong
and waiting for the world to come along...

"Trouble" and "Dont Be Shy" are my favorites, and I dont like Cat Stevens, so Ill take PJ's version anyday of the week.
I also dance with my Mom at my wedding to their version of "Forever Young" which is awesome.
As far as songs with the whole band playing I have to go with "Let My Love Open the Door".
If you have never seen/heard Bruce and Eddie do "No Surrender" and "Darkness on the Edge of Town" those are must listen as well.

I think those are 2 of their worst, relative to the kickass-ity of the originals. Mother is in a weird spot for EV's range and nobody does the solo like Gilmour can.
Little Wing comes off as heavy handed to me. Such a delicate and nuanced tune and that's really missing in PJ's version. The older version with Maggot Brain is a pretty good version but it still doesn't begin to approach the greatness of the original.
Having said that, they do top or equal some of the original versions, and most of them are tunes they've played since the early days. And there are quite a few Ed solo tunes but as cool as some of those are it's usually just the basic chord progression and the singing, whereas a full band cover has alot more to it to be pulled off well.

Generally speaking, Throw Your Arms Around Me is my favorite.... But I was at the Who tribute when they absolutely nailed The Real Me. That was awesome. Best studio cover is Crazy Mary. I think it's actually their best studio performance, period.
Least favorites are any Dylan/Beatles covers.

World Where You Live (Crowded House cover) has got to be my favorite. Then Throw Your Arms Around Me.

It's got to be Sonic Reducer - still after all those years.
I bought some boots just because Sonic Reducer was on the setlist.
PJs versions blow me away every time.

Big fan of Dock Of The Bay - only to be played once and probably never again. Just a great version of it and great song nontheless.
Also a fan of I Believe In Miracles.
