Listening Post

My trip down memory lane reaches its inevitable end with six-and-a-half minutes of absolute perfection.

One of my all-time favorite songs -- Mother Love Bone's Crown of Thorns -- performed live not by the original band but by the band it evolved into: Pearl Jam.

And as a bonus, my favorite Pearl Jam song, performed live in Italy and set to images from the show.

Here's Release.

nice, pearl jam don't often get their due reverence from the rock world. but they put on the best rock n roll show I have ever seen.

Me too. Cameo Theater on South Beach back in '92. Hands down the best show I've ever seen. I got chills and teared up more than once.

Holy shit. I thought I was the only one on the east coast who even heard of Mother Love Bone. Thanks for once again making my Friday a success before it even officially begins.
