Pearl Jam
Acoustic 'Better Man' at Bridge School
Matthew Perpetua

Reprise Records is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts with retrospective DVD and CD sets featuring some of the best performances at the shows from over the years. In this clip from the DVD set, Bridge School mainstays Pearl Jam play a muted, haunting rendition of their hit "Better Man," with Eddie Vedder putting a slightly different spin on his usual melodic phrasing.

The sets, which include acoustic performances by superstars such as Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, R.E.M., Tom Petty, Metallica, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, will hit stores on October 24th. All the proceeds will go the Bridge School charity.
