Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
If You've always wanted a jumbled up copy of the 8/17/90 show with a Pearl Jam show inserted randomly then this is the disc for you!
For a 1990 date, the sound on this disc is great. It isn't perfect, but you can't expect recordings from this time period to be perfect anyway.The live show features Dale Crover on drums, and they play two songs which would later be released on Nevermind, one of which is also played at soundcheck! So you also get to hear Dale Crover play a few songs from Nevermind. That's worth the price alone.

Track 2: The show starts with Krist jamming. He starts playing without distortion, then switches it on. Kurt introduces the band: "We're Nirvana and we really don't particularly like heavy metal." They play Love Buzz. It's a cool version, but the cymbals sound a little "washy," they blend together and kind of overpower the song.
Track 2: They play Floyd The Barber next. Kurt's guitar goes out during the solo. He burps once instead of moaning, though! He gets his guitar to work for the last verse only to have it cut out again near the end of the song. Krist comments that things are "just a little out of control." He plays another, really cool bass solo.
Track 3: Scoff is played next. This is an awesome version! They sound like they're really into it. Afterwards, Krist says "Thanks a lot." He fools around on the bass some more, then Kurt fools around with his guitar. Dale says "Hit it!"
Track 4: They play Dive. As the bass starts in the beginning, Kurt says "this is new" really fast.
Track 5: Next, they play About A Girl. Dale sings the "I do" parts. In fact, he sings all the harmony parts on the songs! It sounds really cool. After the song, Krist says "Got a new song." Not sure what he was refering to since they play Spank Thru next.
Track 6: Kurt starts and stops the first few chords of Spank Thru. Later, he plays a real "gnarled" solo. It's weird but good. Krist says "Back there on the drums we got Dale Crover from the Melvins" to which Dale replies "Yeh, I'm the slut drummer for hire so...." Someone in the audience calls out "Play Molly's Lips." There's a cut.
Track 7: They play Imodium really fast. Kurt sounds like he's really into it. After the song, Krist asks "who the hell is that?" Dale says "this song is called Negative Creep. ... Turn it up! Turn it up!" But Kurt corrects him. "No, this is a new song. It's called In Bloom. It's about reproduction."
Track 8: They play In Bloom of course. Afterwards, Krist fools around on the bass some more.
Track 9: Either the band launches into School or there's another, less noticable cut. It sounds like Kurt says "your attitude again" during the refrain at the end (but doesn't it always?) Krist plays yet another bass solo, then asks "ready?" Kurt replies "Readah! Readah!" It sounds like there's another cut!
Track 12: They play Negative Creep. After the song, Kurt says "Thanks!" Then Krist says "Thanks a lot. You guys were really great!"
Track 13: They end the set with Blew. At the end, Kurt says "Good night!"
