Nirvana Bootography Review: This is a great disc. The sound appears to have come from an open digital microphone. It's a very clear stereo recording.... It's a little overdriven and the crowd can be heard, but it doesn't interfere. Bass feedback interferes with Smells Like Teen Spirit, most likely because of sensitive microphones.
"About a Girl" is listed twice because it's spread over two tracks. The first 8 seconds are on track 6. Whoever was indexing these songs made an error because track 7 begins when the drums kick in. This "extra" track screws up the remainder of the track listing. I wouldn't consider the "Jam" track a real jam... the band was just messing around while preparing for the next song. Sliver and Breed also share a track. The show fades at the end of "Lounge Act" and abruptly continues with "On A Plain", breaking the continuity.
Kurt isn't very talkative, but the band still plays a great set with plenty of energy. An early "All Apologies" and Lounge Act are the highlights. Overall this CD contains a solid recording of a good performance. Like many Japanese bootlegs, this one is lacking in the artwork department and doesn't have a picture on the back of the cover. This disc will make most collectors happy.
** According to SoundGod of the forums, this disc was likely pressed in late 1997.
