Listen: Newly Discovered Eddie Vedder Demos (1989-1990)

Written by Marc Zanotti on January 30, 2013

A new collection of early demos from Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has made its way online. As reported by Antiquiet, the previously unreleased demos are believed to have been recorded around 1989-1990, meaning some tracks predate Pearl Jam.

This new collection of demos have come to light thanks to Antiquiet getting their hands on a tape that Vedder dubbed for a colleague at the singer’s old job at San Diego Petroleum. Within the 13 tracks unearthed on the tape, there’s some ‘new’ material, Pearl Jam classics and covers.

There’s an early recording of Pearl Jam classic Betterman and covers of Kenny Rogers’ Something Inside So Strong and What A Wonderful World by Sam Cooke. This new collection also has better quality demos from Vedder’s first band Bad Radio.

As noted by Antiquiet, hardcore Pearl Jam fans are no strangers to Vedder demos. A few 4-track demo tapes made by Vedder in 1988 and 1989 comprised of solo recordings and Bad Radio recording sessions have been digitized by able collectors.

You can listen to the new collection of Vedder demos below or head over to Antiquiet and download the whole thing.
