An extremely rare example of Pearl Jam's uncensored Angel/Ramblings single, featuring the original recording with curse words intact. Found to be too offensive by Epic/Sony executives, subsequent pressings of the single were censored with bleeps. A handful of copies with the curse words were distributed among the band members, this is one of those examples.
