Pearl Jam – Hail, Hail

I’ve made a bit of a hobby out of collecting Pearl Jam’s releases. I’m nowhere near a completist but I still do fairly well. I mean, who has the funds for keeping on top of things, when they release every show from every tour, not to mention side-projects and everything else? I wish I did.

But I can’t remember ever seeing this single from No Code before, so of course I picked it up. Neat! And it’s the second single of theirs I now own that was made in Austria. Interesting. The collector-geek in me is drooling…

So there’s only two tracks to be found here: First is the title track of the single as it appeared on the album, and what a great rock track it is! I love it when Eddie yells about love, although that line “are you woman enough to be man” always makes my lovely wife laugh at its silliness. Second is a previously unreleased (in 1996) track called Black, Red, Yellow, which is a slinky little number to which you can’t help bobbing your head and tapping your feet to the beat. So cool that most of their b-sides put a lot of other bands’ a-sides to shame.

This was a cool find.

Track Listing:
01 Hail, Hail
02 Black, Red, Yellow
