Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
This has got to be one of the best/most energetic shows ever recorded. The sound is a near perfect Soundboard recording. In my opinion this is the best version of the show you can get. "Saturday Night Sonic Attack" and "Stiff Drinks" are from the same source... the only difference is the bonus tracks included on the discs.

On this disc you get the Lincoln show AND the Palace show! The Palace tracks are much easier to find on this CD, but they don't sound as good as they do on "Mindblower". In fact this disc and "Mindblower" contain the same songs EXCEPT the Palace tracks come first, and sound better on "Mindblower" and the Lincoln tracks come first and sound better on "Saturday Night Sonic Attack." Unless you are a major completist you will only want one of the 2 discs. "Saturday Night Sonic Attack" would probably be the best one to choose.

This date was Chad's second to last show (the loud drums make him sound great). At the end of the show, Krist thanks "the 20 odd people who showed up to their show in Omaha last Fall" (yeah, the hoarded one). You can hear some of this CD on "Outcesticide IV." "Outcesticide IV" uses "Here She Comes Now" and "Pay to Play" from this show. "Pay to Play" is arguably the best performance of the song ever recorded.

The only complaints might be the missing track (Blew) which is missing from all commercial bootlegs of this show.
