One of the best series of concerts they've done.
I bought this through the Pearl Jam fan club mainly for the box art and the poscards they gave with the pre-order, and not as much for the music, simply because I already own a few dozen other Pearl Jam concert albums... I was mistaken... this is an unbelievable set. The 2005 show has them playing at the gorge a night before Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and Eddie repeatedly leads the crowd in singing out to Tom at his hotel nearby. His goal was to get Tom to come join them for the party. There are familiar songs done in new ways, sometimes with new vocals as in the anti-war version of Yellow Ledbetter. This set reminded me once again what an amazing live band Pearl Jam is. If you are a fan of the band, you owe it to yourself to pick this up... Maybe from their website :)
