pdiamant91, you are incorrect. These were released as albums and as such charted on albums charts. At the time Pearl Jam broke a record for the number of albums they had charting during one given period.

Please revert your deletion of Album. Again, the 2000 and 2003 official boots were released as albums. Please refer to RSG §6.10.

Beck - Sea Change MedozK

January 16, 2017
Actually both US and EU versions were plated at Pallas (Germany), hence the Pallas job numbers and P.USA for the soon to be assembled US versions. The Optimal numbers were added once the plates got to Optimal and the Pallas information scratched out. The EU where then pressed there.

Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run MedozK

January 14, 2017
This version is Steve Hoffman's favored mastering - discussed here

EAC levels: 73.4, 89.4, 69.8, 72.1, 66.7, 61.0, 58.2, 74.5 EAC time: 39:34:07

Matrix must include the letter 'A' to have this mastering (for example 31A8) not 'B' if a B is present then you have the later mastering.

Pearl Jam - Live At Third Man Records MedozK

December 11, 2016
New Release from Third Man pertaining to show:

On June 9th, 2016, Third Man Records was humbled to welcome Pearl Jam for a performance in our Nashville Blue Room live venue. Kept secret until the absolute last moment, the crowd of only 250 included lucky Ten Club members, mayors, NBA superstars, country music royalty, and possibly even a few stowaways. To call it a "warm-up” for their headlining set at Bonnaroo two nights later would be to vastly undervalue the evening. The band tore through a clutch collection of songs that spanned both deep cuts and fan favorites. A classic like “Deep” from Ten sits comfortably next to “Life Wasted”from their self-titled album Pearl Jam, and set-closer “Let Me Sleep” was originally recorded in 1990 (and was the band’s first-ever Ten Club release). The highlight of the performance came when Pearl Jam invited Jack White and his guitar to the stage to join on a song that clocked in at over seven minutes and featured wild dueling solos between White and Mike McCready, this epic performance left every mouth in the audience agape and every face on stage all smiles. Those seven minutes were truly some of the most memorable and historic in seven years since the Blue Room opened its doors

Elvis Presley - A Date With Elvis as reviewed by MedozK

August 10, 2014
Featuring newly recorded 1958 tracks along with a few Sun Sessions and rare EP burners, "A Date With Elvis" went on to become one of Elvis' most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of albums. Thanks to his smash hits "Baby, Let's Play House" & "(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care," this southern rockabilly sounding Elvis Presley was just what the fans were screaming for.

The Beatles - Yesterday And Today MedozK

July 15, 2014
Take a few left over Rubber Soul tracks ("Drive My Car," "Nowhere Man," "If I Needed Someone," and "What Goes On"). Add two old Help! tracks that had been issued as a single ("Yesterday" and "Act Naturally"). Pour in a single from late '65 ("We Can Work It Out" and "Day Tripper"). Then supply a bonus of three songs from the still-unreleased NEW British album ("I'm Only Sleeping," "Doctor Robert," and "And Your Bird Can Sing"). What do you get? The appropriately-titled Yesterday...and Today, another popular album in the good old USA.

The front cover to the "new" album was the same shot that was used in England to promote the "Paperback Writer" single: an unfinished photograph of the Beatles wearing butcher smocks and holding cuts of meat and dolls. The picture was part of a group of three that was meant to shatter the Beatles' image. Instead, this picture became an instant collectors' item! Radio stations began to remark about the album immediately, and Capitol issued a withdrawal notice before the actual release date.

Some copies (less than 60,000) got out with the original cover intact. Many more were reissued the same week with a new photo (the Beatles around a steamer trunk) pasted over the original one. Later copies feature only the "trunk" cover. The pause in Capitol's plans didn't stop this album from hitting #1.

NOTE: "We Can Work It Out" and "Day Tripper" had been mixed for stereo for an Australian album. So they ARE in true stereo on this album.

NOTE 2: Most releases on vinyl feature the three Revolver songs in rechanneled stereo. Capitol didn't want to wait the week it would take to get the stereo mixes. But all tape copies, the "record club" issues from the late 60's and 70's, and some later copies of the album, do feature the Revolver songs in stereo--although the mixes differ from the UK mix, as usual.

The Beatles - Rubber Soul MedozK

July 15, 2014
Two of the four left over Help! songs, "I've Just Seen a Face" and "It's Only Love," found their way onto the US Rubber Soul album. The other two songs were released as a single. By now, US albums were beginning to resemble their British counterparts, at least to some extent, although the United States did receive its own special mixes of quite a few songs. On this album, "The Word" and "I'm Looking Through You" (stereo mixes) are noticibly different than in England. This album hit #1 in the US without any singles being issued from it.
