There is going to be a new mix and the original mix available and 4 deluxe versions. There is a super duper deluxe box to pre order for $140 I think it was. This is part of a 2 year re issue of their catalogue. I might have some of this wrong. I just came in and noticed no one posted anything yet and thought I should share. I didn't see that much info about this but maybe there is more out there that others could add.

That looks like it's strictly for the die hard groupie.

There will be a more reasonably priced Deluxe Edition for $31.99

Amazon.com: Ten (Deluxe Edition) (2CD/1 DVD): Pearl Jam: Music

If done right the remix might be interesting. As much as I love the music on this album I was never impressed with the mix or the mastering of the original.

While I agree that the band has gone off the deep end on the commercial side of things, I would welcome a version of Ten that actually sounded good.

Not sure, how Pearl Jam has gone off the deep end. They just give their fans (who are the most rabid, devoted fans I've met) what they want. Personally I would never spend $140 on a Pearl Jam record, but I'm just a casual fan of theirs.

I disagree. They aren't giving fans what they want...they are exploiting fan loyalty with what they think they can sell -- knowing they already got the fanboy who just has to own every piece of insipid stage banter in existence.

Fan loyalty doesn't justify what is happening here. There are plenty of bands that have just as loyal a following...but you don't see those groups with nearly 100 live recordings for sale (of essentially the same stuff over and over again). And all of this from a group that at the time only had 7 albums worth of original material. It's a joke, and the joke is on the fans.

It might be different if we were talking about a jam band like The Grateful Dead where a lof their live shows offered fresh interpretations of their classic material or the performances featured a lot of improvising -- but Pearl Jam is not that kind of band. How many sound-a-like performances of Even Flow does one really need?

I don't agree they are exploiting fans. To say that you have to believe they are explicitly attempting to take advantage of fans for the cynical purpose of filling their pockets with money. I don't think the band is doing that. In a similar vein, I don't think fans were being exploited when the Beatle's Anthology series and Live at the BBC CDs were released. Those fans who want those things happily chose to have them by spending their money. No one is forced to do so however.

I do agree with you that the many releases by Pearl Jam aren't worth the money. To each their own, but I have no interest in those. On this remaster of Ten, I guess I have a wait and see attitude. I always liked the original, so I have no pent up desire for a better version of that.

That has to be some of the most tortured logic I've seen on this forum. Methinks you have exploit confused with coerce. I never said fans were coerced into buying anything.

In any event, you are all entitled to your opinions and we will just have to agree to disagree.
