Nirvana Bootography Review: This Outcesticide disc contains some of the rarest of the rarities. Tracks 20-22 are of lesser sound quality than what is typical of the Outcesticide series because they are the only recordings available of a particular song (Curmudgeon has surfaced in a little better quality). This is an excellent compilation disc for collectors and contains a number of tracks found on only a few other discs. Outcesticide III was released in late 1995.
This disc grabbed tracks 14, 15 and 19 from the 11/25/90 show. These tracks aren't bad, but I think the Season in Hell Vol.1 set has them in a little better quality. A couple of tracks (6, 7, and 23) are from the 12/24/88 studio sessions and I've heard versions that are a little more crisp... still not bad though. The first 3 tracks are from the 2/4/94 French broadcast and are excellent. There is a discription of the remaining tracks below.

Outcesticide III is an excellent disc to pick up. It contains songs of varying sound quality, but all the recordings are listenable. Opinions on the disc vary widely. Some collectors feel that the CD is the best of the Outcesticide series, while others feel that the rare early recordings of poorer sound quality detract from the disc.
Most Outcesticides are counterfits... which isn't necessarily bad, but it matters to some people. Compare the artwork on your disc to the artwork you see here. True Blue Moon Outcesticide III discs have the title "backwards" on the spine of the inlay, meaning that when you stack it with your other discs, the words will be facing the wrong way. The backwards spine, listing of known matrices, and the artwork to compare your disc to should give you enough to tell whether or not your Outcesticide III (or one that you are planning to purchase) is a genuine Blue Moon disc, or a clone. The most recent pressing of Outcesticide 3 has subtly different disc artwork.
