Dive Into Hole

Live Nirvana Bootography Rating: F  22%

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
Dive Into Hole is a Japanese disc and in its original pressing can be somewhat difficult to find (not rare, just uncommon). In 2005/6 it was repressed and should now be fairly easy to find. Reluctantly I have to fail this disc because like every other disc this label has released, this disc is defective.
The February 15th tracks appear to be (badly)cloned from Supersonic and the May 13th tracks are a bad copy of "Mindblower".
Like all "Lithium" discs this one suffers from an unacceptably high noise floor and high-end distortion throughout the disc. The filler show (05/13/90) on Dive Into Hole also suffers similar deterioration problems.

Most collectors will prefer to pick up Heaven Can Wait for the Febrary 15th show. The filler tracks from the May 13th, 1990 show can be found in better quality on Stiff Drinks or Saturday Night Sonic Attack. The disc isn't completely worthless, but there are better alternatives.

Special thanks to Max and DJ Watson for their contributions to this review.

See the review for "Rare Take and Tracks Vol.1" for more details of the defects on all this Label's releases.
