The Concerts In Italy

Nirvana Bootography Rating: A-  90%

Nirvana Bootography Review:
The Concerts Of Italy is a re-release by the On Stage label of three of it's titles. The packaging is quite interesting and consists of three double-sided panels. Each panel contains a picture on both sides, a disc, a tracklisting insert (with a familiar Italian stamp on each one), and a paper wrapper to hold the collection together. While it looks great, the packaging is inconvenient at best and makes pulling out a disc very difficult.

The first disc is the second of two commercial releases of the 11/27/89 Piper show. The first being Piper 1989 by the same label. This disc is the highlight of the set and contains the show where Kurt quits in the middle of Spank Thru and has a nervious breakdown.

The second disc is the almighty 2/22/94 show that has been released too many times to count. The sound quality is very reasonable and while I wouldn't rate it ahead of Roma or XXII II MCMXCIV, it might not be worth buying either of those discs if you own this one. You can also find this on On Stage's Last Concert In Italy.

The third disc is the lowpoint for the set. It's a re-release of On Stage's 2/25/94 release Concert In Milan 25/2/94, which is a double CD (they could have fit it on a single disc). Kobra's Suicide Solution is a worthy acquisition to substitute for this piece of junk.

You can get this set through On Stage's other titles (which are reviewed in greater detail), but the packaging makes it unique and worth owning. Two of the discs received low "A" ratings and the third was rated a solid "F". The packaging gives it a boost, thus the rating of this 3CD set is greater than the average of the discs included in the set.
