Classic Acoustic Broadcast Recording from the 1996 B.S.B. Concert.

Following Pearl Jam’s tour in support of their 1994 album Vitalogy, the band went into the studio to record its follow-up, No Code. Eddie Vedder said later, ‘Making No Code was all about gaining perspective.’ Released in August 1996, the record was initially seen as a deliberate break from the band's traditional sound, which they had employed since their debut, Ten, in 1991.

Although the album debuted at number one on the Billboard charts, it quickly fell from the top spot; featuring the singles ‘Who You Are’, ‘Hail, Hail’, and ‘Off He Goes’, Pearl Jam only toured sporadically in its wake, largely due to their refusal at this juncture to play in Ticketmaster's venue areas. A European tour did take place in the fall of 1996 however, and on their return to the US Pearl Jam performed at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit Concert on 19th & 20th October. The third time, since its inception a decade before, that the group had performed at this worthy charity show, their performance across the two days - both sets are included here - are long felt to be among the best acoustic shows Pearl Jam ever performed.

Pearl Jam - Bridging The Gap is an album I had never heard of, however it's a great acoustic album.

Thanks for the quick and accurate delivery.

Great Era and Great Album

Really happy that I made this purchase. I wish I had grabbed the one from the 1999 shows when it was available. Hoping it resurfaces some day.

A Must Have

If you got this for only one reason, it would be for track 4, the alternate version of Corduroy. I have tons of PJ bootlegs and shows, and this one is one of PJs defining sets not just during this era, but throughout their complete body of work to date. And the audio quality is top notch. Enjoy!
