      Their best album by a country mile, they were never the same after this masterpiece. Sacking Dave Abbruzzese had a lot to do with that.

        I purchased this album in 1994 and at the time vinyl was a 2ndary thing if anything. But...I must say that this vinyl completely blew away the cd version at the time. IMO this is what Pearl Jam sounded like...not remastered...not redefined...not remixed ...just the way it sounded. Thats all.

          It sounds great overall, but sadly the first three (maybe No Code also) albums were cut from digital DAT masters back in the day. So there’s a little bit of punch missing from the original pressings. That said it still sounds great. I bought my copy new in ‘02 with all the same matrix numbers so I’m assuming Epic did non-distinguished represses. Oddly my copy had visible scratches on side b when I opened it up which is a bummer, as I like to take care of my records. But it still plays well and is enjoyable for sure.

            Wondering does this entry include promo? I do not see any other entries with cat. # E 66900.

            My copy has a clear rectangular sticker similar to Pearl Jam - Vitalogy but with rounded edges and over the plastic (still sealed) that reads "pearl jam" and underneath in extremely small font is "66900-S1".

            Also has a white rectangular sticker with blue print in the upper rightmost corner on back that reads:

            Ownership Reserved By Sony
            Sale Is Unlawful".

                I have a sealed vinyl copy with the bar code 074646690017. Nothing comes up on Discogs for it. Would this be a counterfeit and how would I be able to investigate further without opening it up?

                  I’ve found that original Pearl Jam vinyl sounds rad. They were recorded and mastered well for vinyl and the vinyl releases really exemplify their sound. Ten, Vs., Vitalogy...all sound downright exceptional on vinyl. With a rich, full, thick sound that is clear and concise with beautiful clarity. The vinyl versions really hone in on the intimate details of the recordings. I never thought hard rock could translate so well into vinyl but after hearing these original Pearl Jam vinyl releases, I’m a believer. Deep bass, punchy drums, full low end and crisp/clear highs make the records a joy to listen to for the fans. The records just seem to pull you in and Vedder’s voice is more up front and direct than anything I’ve ever heard on CD. Really in-your-face, kick-in-the-gut sound on this Vitology LP. Heavy and defined. Perfectly balanced and aimed to please. Nothing wrong with this recording.

                    Anyone else have a version of this that skips during the first 10 or so seconds of "Last Exit"? It's been like that since the day I bought it in 1994.

                      Does anyone have any info on an early 2000s pressing of Vitalogy? I purchased a copy brand new in around 2004. It says E 66900 on the spine, just like the 1994 version.
