Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
This is the infamous show where Kurt overdosed before the show and Courtney injected him with other drugs so he would be able to play. It's fairly nice show, that is unfortunately ruined by the mic cutting in and out at points. The sound problems are really bad at the beginning of "Serve The Servants" and you can not even hear the first verse of "Drain You." The recording is also incomplete. This version is missing the second half of "Aneurysm", (Some dummy thought it would be funny to edit it so it sounds like the band kicks straight from the "Aneurysm Intro" into "Very Ape" {Yes "Aneurysm" was played in its complete form. And I believe that this was the last time it was played live.} ) Blew, & "Territorial Pissings".

This was also the first time the band introduced an acoustic set to their set list. The crowd starts getting pretty rough during the acoustic set because they couldn't mosh to an acoustic "Something In The Way" :) If you pay attention, you can hear Courtney griping "They can do a f***ing acoustic set if they want!".

The one disc versions of this show sound better than the full version (Only found on "The Heart-Shaped Box Set Vol.2"). It's a lose/lose situation similar to the Reading 1992 recordings (the complete version is from an inferior source).

It is still unclear which came out first, "I Hate Myself And I Want To Die" or "I Love Myself And I Want To Live." A few years later "I Hate Myself And I Want To Die" was re-released with new artwork under Metal Crash's new name "Octopus." All 3 versions of this disc are fairly easy to find, ("I Love Myself And I Want To Live" being a little bit rarer than the other 2) and I would HIGHLY recommend getting any one of these. If you want the complete show but either can not find the "Heart-Shaped Box Set Vol.2" or do not have the money to get it, then obtain one of these titles AND "Make Me Sick." "Make Me Sick" is a one-disc version from the source that "Heart-Shaped Box Set Vol.2" is taken from. It's not the complete show but it does contain the three tracks that were missing on the other one-disc versions that were taken from a better source.
