Nirvana Bootography Review: This show can be found on numerous bootlegs. All of the discs containing this show are incomplete and out of order with the exception of Paradiso Lost. Sliver features excellent FM broadcast sound, with "fake clapping" between the tracks.
The fake clapping is difficult to detect at first and I was completely fooled until I did a little research and found the tracks to be out of order. Once you pay attention to the crowd, the additional noise fairly obvious because it swells between the tracks, and dies down once the song begins. The crowd noise doesn't really interfere, and it covers up the splicing between the songs. It's unfortunate that "Come as You Are" is missing because Kurt' screams the entire song. "Territorial Pissings" is cut short, and appears that way on all other commercial bootlegs.
The REAL set list, in order, is as follows:
Floyd the Barber
Smells Like Teen Spirit
About A Girl
Come As You Are
Been A Son
On A Plain
Tracks 17-24 are an added bonus that can't be found on any other commercial bootleg. The sound is good for such an early date and features an early "Breed," "Dive," and a semi rare performance of "Mr. Moustache." Kurt's mic goes out and shortens "Floyd the Barber" significantly. Too bad the entire show isn't here, but the filler on this disc is still quite nice. The best place to get the Paradiso show is Paradiso Lost.
