To commemorate their 20th anniversary, Pearl Jam are releasing Live on Ten Legs – a sequel to their 1998 live album, Live on Two Legs. Out January 18th, the 18-track LP is taken from shows between 2003 and 2010 and features hits ("Alive," "Jeremy") mixed with fan favorites ("Yellow Ledbetter," "Porch") and a cover of PiL's "Public Image." Pearl Jam wrapped a lengthy world tour in July, but "nothing is confirmed for next year," says guitarist Stone Gossard. "We might play some shows, but probably not that many."

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
