Nirvana Bootography Review: It's hard to imagine that the Nirvana Bootography could get excited over a disc containing a performance that is available on some 20 other titles. Paradiso Lost is the ONLY commercially available disc to ever be released with the complete/uncut 11/25/91 show. Why has a performance this good with such solid sound has never made it's way to a commercially available disc before?
In case you missed it on Live Tonight Sold Out, the officially released Nirvana video, this is the show where Kurt screams the Come As You Are lyrics while his guitar is terribly out of tune. The song is massacred and Kurt's reaction makes this a classic concert moment for the band. Incredibly, this track has NEVER been available on a commercial disc until now. All other 11/25/91 discs are cut and out of order - none contain the Come As You Are track and if they contain the Territorial Pissings track at all, it is cut.
Paradiso Lost contains the tracks all the other discs lack, and the performance is unedited. The soundquality appears to be a generation or two down from the soundboard or FM broadcast - which is excellent! This is a staple that belongs in EVERY collection. If you enjoy live Nirvana discs, you'll be more than satisfied with this one.
