Nirvana Bootography Review: "San Francisco 1993" features one of the first shows where the band incorperates a lot of "In Utero" material. The setlist is a mix of old and new songs ranging from "Dive" and "Negative Creep" to "Milk It" and "Serve The Servents", which makes the setlist very unique. The sound is from an above average audience recording. Crowd noise can be heard throughout, but doesn't obstruct the songs.
Kurt seems to be picking the songs as the show progresses. He plays the opening chords to several of the In Utero songs to let the band know which song they were going to play next. Kurt also screws up the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" solo and "All Apologies" is a little rough (guitar errors).
The performance was a part of at Bosnian rape victims benefit and the band started the show with "Rape Me" (missing from this disc). Some fans didn't understand that it was an anti-rape song, and were angry with the band. The disc is also missing the second song, "School", and the show finishing "Endless Nameless".
San Francisco 1993 is a solid, yet unspectacular disc. It's the only commercially available disc from this date, and is incomplete. There are better "In Utero" shows available with better sound quality. Most bootleg fans will appreciate this one.
