Vs./Vitalogy Reissue Promo Hits

by Kathy Davis on February 20, 2011

Several tidbits of Vs./Vitalogy “product placement” and promotion are fingering their way into the eager marketplace.

Here’s a great promo video featuring interview clips with Jeff Ament and Brendan O’Brien:

Also, it seems the Record Store Day UK official website have listed an exclusive-to-the-day 7″ vinyl single of Vitalogy’s “Immortality” backed with “Rearviewmirror”.   They hold their day same as in the States – on April 16, 2011.  The band mentioned in their official news post regarding the release that their releases for Record Store Day would be:

4. Record Store Day Vinyl Editions (LP) – Available April 12th

Vs. and Vitalogy will be available at independent record retailers in new commemorative, vinyl editions on April 12th in time for Record Store Day 2011 (April 16th).

- Vs. (single LP) and Vitalogy (double LP) – both remastered

So whether this combo single makes it to our grubby little collector hands or not remains to be seen.

Finally,  a great way to expose the mind-blowingly powerful music from the Vs./Vitalogy years to the gamer nation, “Rearviewmirror” is effectively used as a soundtrack in video game company 2KSports Official trailer for MLB2K11.  It’s a great fit, given Ed’s passion for baseball, Mike performing the national anthem at an upcoming Mariner’s game and the band’s overall passion for sports (btw ever catch a glimpse of all the baseball action figures Jeff’s tech George Webb used to keep on his side-stage command center? Pirates fan till death, I reckon!) Here’s the vid:

Reissue Rock!
