In The Bloom

Live Nirvana Bootography Rating: A  96%

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
"In the Bloom" is a clear soundboard recording and contains a nice set list (Paper Cuts and Sappy are played). The disc is very solid in all aspects (complete show). It can also be found on "It's All Going Wrong," which is less difficult to find. "In the Bloom" is issued in a slip case.... a little box that holds the regular jewel case. It's believed that this disc first surfaced in 1992.

Except for Kurt's sickly intro, the band seems to play well even though this was the tail end of a grueling tour. Kurt starts the show with his "screaming "intro", like the one on the Wishkah album - except he has to stop to cough. After the first song of Nirvana's set, Chad's (Chad Channing is the drummer) snare drum breaks and Kurt and Krist perform an impromptu Led Zeppelin cover (Dazed and Confused). Krist slaughters the vocals (similar to his singing before Territorial Pissings). The rest of the show is good, and Nirvana's performance is complete and unedited.

Not included on the disc is Kurt's performance with Tad earlier in the night. He played two songs with them after Tad (the lead singer) passed out during their set. The weird circumstances around this show make it unique. Bleach tours, and early Nevermind shows are the best. They're certainly the most interesting. A complete soundboard recording from this time is pretty nice. Great disc of the band in this era. Highly recommended if you like the early stuff.

I recently stumbled across a "Blue Issue" of this disc ... Neither Cory or myself have ever seen one of these before. We've both seen the regular "purple issue" on many occasions, so it's assumed that the Blue version is not as common. We'd appreciate any additional information someone can give us.

"Dazed And Confused" Labeled As "Jam"
"Sappy" Labeled As "Another Rule"
"Spank Thru" Labeled As "Freedom Of Choise"
