Pearl Jam will reissue their debut album Ten in a big way next year, remastering it, remixing it and stocking it with demos, live performances and even a cassette tape. Four different editions of Ten will be released on March 24th, 2009, ranging from the double-disc Legendary Edition to the absolutely stacked Super Deluxe Version, which features 2 CDs, a DVD of their 1992 MTV Unplugged performance, 4 LPs and a replica cassette of the band's famed Momma Son demo tape. Plus, a remix of the album will be overseen by producer Brendan O'Brien, who worked with the band on four albums. The reissue is just the first of many as Pearl Jam gears up for their 20th anniversary in 2011.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
