Nirvana Bootography Review: This is an average audience recording... fairly consistant, but not the greatest sound in the world. So why would anyone spend big bucks on a double CD with an average audience recording?? 2 reasons... This is the only commercial bootleg containing the only surfaced recording of "You Know You're Right," AND it's a very tough find.
The Small Clone label is probably the best bootleg label I know of for finding obscure and valuable Nirvana recordings. Unfortunately, Small Clone is a Japanese label and their boots are usually hard to find. This disc set gets part of it's "A" rating due to it's relatively high value in collectors circles.
Other things to note are the fact that this is a complete recording of the show. There is a blank span of a few seconds on the first disc immediately after the bands introduction and "About A Girl" gets muddy at one point. The last track is something you won't find anywhere else. The last track is a phone message recording of Kurt Cobain. The tape is a tad slow, but you can tell it's Kurt. He sounds drunk/stoned and pissed. Apparently he's speaking to a reporter he's not very happy with.
This is not a disc for the beginning collector. Nirvana fans who have a decent collection will appreciate a rare recording of a complete show despite the audience recording sound. "You Know You're Right" isn't found on many bootlegs. I highly recommend this version.
