Live Nirvana Bootography Review: Well, here's something a bit different! This 2 disc set first became known to collectors in October 2006. Disc 1 is a fairly decent version of the 04/17/87 show but disc 2 is a DVD of Nirvana's Appearances on Saturday Night Live.
Some British DVD production companies seem to have found a loophole in the law that allows them to produce "Legal Bootlegs" similar to the shortlived situation in Australia that occurred around 1994 with the unauthorised live cd's and these DVD's are now cropping up in normal high street record shops in the UK. the DVD has a square blue "Nirvana Broadcasting live" logo in the bottom right corner of the picture throughout and songwriting credits are superimposed on the screen at the the start of the song as required by the law. Rape Me is in very good quality, likely ripped from the offical official SNL DVD. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Territorial Pissings" are from a very generated tape and badly encoded with lots of digital artefacts on sound and vision and overall quality on a par with a VCD.
The final track "Heart Shaped Box" is slightly worse quality than "Rape Me" but no where near as bad as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Territorial Pissings"
The first Bar of "Rape Me" has been cut, presumably to disguise the origin of the footage (The Official SNL DVD). Points have been deducted as both discs are very short.
