Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
This is the type of bootleg that is somewhat disappointing. All of the tracks fade in when they begin and fade out at the end of the song. The in-between song banter and crowd reaction that makes a live show fun to listen to have been edited out. The sound quality is above average, and live collectors do possess various uncut versions of this concert.

There's no point in buying "Bleach Pop" because you'll get the same continuity with better sound quality if you buy a disc like "From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah." This bootleg had the potential to be very good, but was ruined by whoever mastered the disc for Halloween Records.

However, the 11/11/91 concert is one of the very best of the tour, and despite the flaws on this release, is still well worth considering.

This disc contains a solid audience recording as the band was just hitting peak form.
The highlights are a really powerful version of Aneurysm, a monstrous start to Breed, a perfect opening verse and chorus of Lithium, and a slow but steady Pennyroyal Tea. Blew is also played very well.
Some of the songs are cut in, which is annoying, but very little is actually missing - in fact, on listening to ANA3 of the master on CDR, it is apparent that the cuts actually help the flow of the show by removing ridiculously long tuning breaks.
Although the sound is a little muddy, the drums sound gloriously powerful and upfront, especially the cymbals. If you like your recordings to be heavier in the low-end frequencies (like 10/24/90), then this is another essential one for you.
One of my favourites, and surely one of the best shows of the era.

"Sliver" Labeled As "Take Me Home"
