Nirvana Bootography Review:
This show is AMAZING!!! Check out the setlist... not one or two rarities, half the show is made of songs that were rarely played!!! Kurt must have decided that they were going to change things up a little bit before the show... after all, they were playing in Seattle and I'm sure many of the audience members had already heard them play the regular songs... for whatever reason, they came out and played a Nirvana bootleggers dream. This show contains as many or more rarities than any other.

The show starts out with an early version of Aneurysm with alternate lyrics (One of the lines is "C'mon over and shoot the s*%t!!!! GAAAAAAAWD D#@*n!!!!). "Verse Chorus Verse" is momentarily interrupted by a guy talking, but I can't really complain otherwise (it's still the second best recording of the song). Before "Sliver" someone in charge of the club announce that it is 2:00 and all the alcohol has to disappear... 2:00 A.M!!! Krist thanks everyone for staying instead of slipping out to the 7-11 to buy beer. I would imagine that the band was at it's happiest at this time. They truly sound like they're having a good time, they had the freedom to come up with a bizarre setlist on a whim... it just sounds like they were having a blast. If I could choose any Nirvana show to attend, this would have been it. I've also seen internet rumors that there may have been an encore to this show... I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised.

This disc is one of three discs in "A Season In Hell" part 1, however it is packaged seperately from the other two, so there's a slim chance you can pick it up by itself.

Overall this is an excellent audience recording. Some people might argue that I've graded this disc too highly. As someone who has listened to quite a few Nirvana shows, I recognize what a treat this recording is... even if it isn't soundboard. If you're buying something for sound quality, get Roma... if you want a once in a lifetime show and don't mind an audience recording, this is one of the best available.
