Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
"Seattle Wa. September 21 1991" contains a raw performance by the band just before they broke into the mainstream. The set list contains some nice rarities. Only 5 of the18 songs performed came from the album that this tour was supporting (Nevermind). After Nevermind became popular, the set lists became a lot more standardized. The sound is excellent and appears to be a professional open mic recording... it's good enough that novice collectors will enjoy it even though it's not a soundboard recording.

The disc has a little editing after "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Breed." Otherwise, it seems to be complete. There are equipment problems throughout the show. "Here She Comes Now" is extended due to Kurt's guitar going out. Blew is performed twice (on the same track)... the band starts and Kurt's guitar goes out leaving Dave and Krist jamming on the song until Kurt is ready again. It sounds like Krist starts singing the lyrics at one point and does the chorus in a falsetto voice. The audience is great and there were some dedicated fans who knew to ask for songs like "Spank Thru" and one guy who yells "Donkey Show" several times... The band started saying "Donkey Show" on their 1989 tour in Europe as thank you (sounds like the German "Thank You" that I'm not going to try to spell).

"Seattle Wa. September 21 1991" is the preferred disc for this date. "Playing at the Moon" is nearly identical, but this recording is less bass heavy. "Seattle Wa. September 21 1991" is out of phase, Phase corrected versions are availabe in trading circles.

"Breed" Labeled As "Bleed"
"Been A Son" Labeled As "Been A Sun"
