San Francisco 1993

Live Nirvana Bootography Rating: A  95%

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
"San Francisco 1993" features one of the first shows where the band incorperates a lot of "In Utero" material. The setlist is a mix of old and new songs ranging from "Dive" and "Negative Creep" to "Milk It" and "Serve The Servents", which makes the setlist very unique. The sound is from an above average audience recording. Crowd noise can be heard throughout, but doesn't obstruct the songs.

Kurt seems to be picking the songs as the show progresses. He plays the opening chords to several of the In Utero songs to let the band know which song they were going to play next. Kurt also screws up the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" solo and "All Apologies" is a little rough (guitar errors).

The performance was a part of at Bosnian rape victims benefit and the band started the show with "Rape Me" (missing from this disc). Some fans didn't understand that it was an anti-rape song, and were angry with the band. The disc is also missing the second song, "School", and the show finishing "Endless Nameless".

San Francisco 1993 is a solid, yet unspectacular disc. It's the only commercially available disc from this date, and is incomplete. There are better "In Utero" shows available with better sound quality. Most bootleg fans will appreciate this one.
The other CD of the same name listed in the bootography is a later repressing by the same company under their new name (Live Storm). This one, bought in late 1993 is the original first pressing.
"Rarities & Few", "Red Line", "Post Script" releases were latterly repressed by "Live Storm", using the original insert design and films (no scans, no blurred artwork). This is confirmed by releases from many bands.

"Milk It" Labeled As "Test Me"
"Dumb" Labeled As "Ain't Over"
"Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle" Labeled As "Francis"
"Serve The Servants" Labeled As "Sundown"
"All Apologies" Labeled As "Mary"
"Heart-Shaped Box" Labeled As "Wait"
"Scentless Apprentice" Labeled As "Away"
