Nirvana Bootography Review: This double CD doesn't have much in the way of artwork. The cover is one panal with the same picture on the front and back. The inlay is double sided .
Disc 1 The first thirteen tracks from disc one are an average (B) audience recording. The tape source from which this recording came has a couple of bad spots at about 5 minutes into track 3 and at the beginning of track 10 and 13, the bad spots don't interupt a song. There is editing between songs 11 through 13, so the continuity isn't 100%. The show is somewhat lackluster... nothing spectacular happens, the recording is average and no real rarities were played. It's still nice to have an early 90's show, even if you won't listen to it many times. The quality of disc one from this box set is a little better than this.
The rest of the songs on the second disc are a compilation from various sources. Most songs are of good sound quality (track 16 is great), however a few of the tracks are lacking (track 18 is bad), but all will suffice. Sifting is the early version without lyrics.
Disc 2 Disc two is a compilation of demos are rare live tracks. Not much can be said for compilations except for the quality if the recordings. This disc is probably a little better than the average compilation disc quality-wise and contains a couple of songs many compilations do not include. Banzai definitely tries to give you your money's worth with two discs averaging about 76 minutes in length.
