Cameron Crowe is just getting warmed up for what will be a very busy fall and winter. He’s got his next feature film “We Bought A Zoo” being prepped for a December 23rd bow, and early in the new year will see HBO release his Elton John documentary “The Union.” But before that, he’s got “Pearl Jam Twenty,” a comprehensive look at the band in celebration of their twenty years of making music.
After playing some festival dates and getting a limited release last month, “Pearl Jam Twenty” arrives in your local record shop today, and to help spur the nostalgia, a previously unreleased, Cameron Crowe-directed video for “Not For You” has arrived. For the the band’s second single from Vitalogy, the clip finds Crowe focusing purely on the band’s presence as a live act, cutting together concert footage and other archival bits and pieces. It certainly captures the energy of the band, who, at the time, were riding arguably their highest point of popularity, with the album finding the group taking some stylistic diversions from their well-worn alt-rock sound. You can check the video out below for a trip back to Pearl Jam’s much younger days. Meanwhile, “Pearl Jam Twenty” is available on demand or on DVD and BluRay from your local retailer.
