Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
This is a reissue of Heart Shaped Box Vol2 Discs 3& 4, except it was badly pressed and and disc 7 won't even play/copy properly! Tracks 1-2 are from official releases. Track 3 is from the MTV Promo Vid of All Apologies, Tracks 4-15 are the 12 track MTV Broadcast Version of the Unplugged show, the rest of disc 3 and most of disc 4 is the infamous 7/23/93 "overdose" show, the setlist is like no other show Nirvana played. They are joined on stage for a few songs by "Big" John Duncan, formerly guitarist of Scottish punk latecomers "The Exploited", a fact that the exploited's record company were quick to exploit (no pun intended!) on the liner notes of their reissues.
But you wouldn't know anything about this show from listening to this cd! this is the worst recording i've ever heard in 12 years of listening to Bootlegs, the source tape is as F****d up as Kurt was during this show!
The tape suffers from every tape problem you could possibly imagine! Wow, Flutter, phasing, flanging, azimuth problems, over use of noise reduction, i listened to the whole thing last night and i couldn't tell you anything about this show! The Volume varies from inaudible to deafening, If any of our older British readers remember trying to listen to Radio Luxembourg on a bad night, well this was worse than that!
The complete version of this source only appears here, Thank heavens for that!

The Heart Shaped Box set is the most pathetic excuse for a bootleg ever to be inflicted on Nirvana fans, (8 discs of pirated official releases and an unlistenable show)Listening to the whole thing is like being forced to sift through the contents of a public toilet which hasn't been flushed for 6 months.
Been A Son is ripped from the "Lithium" Single, Get the 7/23/93 Show on "I Hate Myself And I Want To Die". | all documents, unless otherwise noted, © 2001 - Present | Contact webmaster
