Founding Pearl Jam member Jeff Ament recalled the recording of Ten
magazine March 2009: "We went to Michael Goldstone at Sony and said, We don't want to spend a lot of money making this record, we want to get out and play, do it the way were comfortable, doing it with somebody local."
"There were two sessions at London Bridge in Seattle, probably of a day or two each, and after that we went in to record the record proper, because we had four or five new songs," he continued. "'Deep,' 'Jeremy
' and 'Porch
' were probably the last three."
"I think we went in March or April . Ed had moved up here in November. It happened pretty quick. I remember there being a lot of snow on the ground, which is pretty rare for Seattle. We were stuck in the city, stuck in our basement."
