1001 7" Records You Must Own No.31 Pearl Jam – Alive / Once

On the intro to ‘Habit’ Eddie Vedder utters the phrase “speaking as a child of the 90’s” well I was a child of the 90’s and Pearl Jam were my soundtrack, I remember borrowing their ‘Ten’ album from my brothers friend on cassette and being blown away by just how good and album I was hearing, they say home taping was killing music, to me it was introducing me to many bands that I would go onto collect a lot of records by. Here we have their biggest single of probably their entire career ‘Alive’ and if you don’t know it shame on you, backed by album opener ‘Once’ which is an understated gem and quite a bit darker and heavier.
