Live Nirvana Bootography Rating:

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
This is a great disc (As with all the Kiss The Stone discs). It's very common (It contains two of the most commonly bootlegged Nirvana performances) and should be considered a classic. It belongs in every Nirvana collection.

The tracks were taken directly from the MTV broadcasts, thus you are only getting the 12 tracks from unplugged and the 10 tracks from Live & Loud that were aired. These track's are different (and in my opinion better) then the official Unplugged release because they sound like they are supposed to. They weren't tweaked and remixed/remastered like the official release was. That being said, don't let the "directly from the Mtv broadcasts" fool you, I would even go as far as to say that this sounds good enough to be a official release. Awesome disc, great artwork. A MUST HAVE for any collection.

Well, what can I say? Sure it's great to get a Nirvana bootleg, but it's almost a rip off. The first 12 tracks are just MTV's unplugged in a more raw form. The best thing about the album are the tracks following the unplugged. These are live and very audible. It's the highlight of the album because these are some really good quality tracks from the In Utero/Nevermind era. Overall, this disc is worth buying.

buy this disc for the stunning Quality of the 11/18/93 "unplugged" tracks, the sound mix is noticeably different to the official geffen release, this is the best sounding of all the unplugged bootlegs i've heard - the stereo separation is stunning, though not the most complete: there has been some editing to fit it on the disc but nothing of any importance has been chopped just a bit of the banter that appears on the official version - thankfully they left intact the banter that isn't on the official cd the 12/13/93 filler is utter garbage it is badly mixed and pretty much mono(the sound level also varies a bit) and this show has been edited badly to fit on the disc- a huge chunk has been removed from the "demolition" track so just another almost perfect KTS disc ruined by a few stupid mistakes still reccomended
