Nirvana Bootography Review: Before you read this review, know that Digital Nirvana did not have anything to do with the production of this CD. We're as surprised as anyone to find a disc that is named the same as this domain... maybe it's a coincidence, maybe it's an encouraging nudge by some bootlegger out there who likes this site (I like to think that). Whatever the reason, nobody associated with Digital Nirvana has anything to do with the sale of bootlegs, bootleg production, or the endorsement of bootlegs. We just report the truth folks... this is only a guide.
While Digital Nirvana is a very short disc, it is complete. The sound quality is excellent and every bit as good as anything circulating today ("A quality" audio). This isn't a soundboard recording as advertised on the cover, but it leaves nothing to be desired for most bootleg collectors. Nothing spectacular occurs during the short 35 minute set. The band begins the show teasing the audience by asking if Pukkel means zit and whether or not this was a "zit popping festival" (this was the Pukkelpop festival). The band roars through all 11 songs including Endless, Nameless. Oddly, Polly is the opening song (bands usually open their shows with songs that move the crowd into a frenzy)!! They opened with Polly only a handful of times in the band's career.
The sound quality is excellent and this is the only commercially released title of this performance. Two points were deducted from the grade because it's not a soundboard and because there is no additional filler (35 minutes isn't enough!). This is an excellent disc and collectors should be happy if they find this one.
This disc was first discovered by the Nirvana Bootography in Japan in November of 2000.
*Kurl provided a list dates where the band opened with Polly: 6/13/91 6/18/91 6/19/91 6/20/91 (8/24 and 8/25, obviously) 9/1/91
