Live Nirvana Bootography Rating: D- 

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
This is a 11 track version of the 12-28-91 show. That's all that is on this disc. Not the complete show and no filler tracks. This is a disc that everyone but the completist should avoid.

Most of these 11 track discs contain the same source (Ripped straight off the US radio broadcast of March 15th 1992). The exception is the "Psychotic Reaction" disc which is cloned from the pre-fm radio disc of this broadcast which was sent to radio stations.

Do yourself a favor and just get "Psychotic Reaction" or "Live". But if you must have this show then any one of these 11 track post-FM versions will be able to hold you over, but once you do get "Psychotic Reaction" or "Live" chances are all this disc will do is attract dust. The sound quality on this disc is just OK, less harsh than "San Diego '91" and it's clones, less generated/butched than the Australian titles.

The Del Mar show is a short but solid performance from Nirvana's short December 1991 tour with Pearl Jam and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The band don't say much and no rare songs were played, indeed 12/31/91 is arguably the better show of the tour. However the Del Mar show was pro-recorded by Westwood One and broadcast on the radio numerous times in various differently edited forms, hence the proliferation of titles containing this show.

SPECIAL NOTES: Due to the large number of sources for this show the sound qualities have been calculated more precisely than for other shows in the Live Nirvana Tour History. In addition an entire guide has been written to radio discs featuring this show, evaluating each on sound quality and completeness: click here to read the 12/28/91 Radio Disc Guide.
