The easiest way to spot the clone from the original release is the lack of a full booklet AND if you look on the disc itself the octopus on the REAL one is in a different color (blue) where the one on the fake is the same color as the rest of the disc.
Yet another release of the 02/22/94 show. To the best of my knowledge this was the second release of the show. All clones are made from either this disc or ROMA with the exception of the ones with a mixed up setlist. "The Man Who Sold The World" is taken from the 11/17/93 New York Unplugged show. This is a show that is very common, sounds good enough to be an official release, and should be bought on one title or another by every Nirvana fan.
In a recent conversation in the Nirvana Collectors' forum, the sound quality of this disc was determined to be slightly better than that of Roma. For this reason, "XXII II MCMXCIV" receives a grade of 100% while Roma gets 99% (one point subtraction). This is the best disc to get the highest quality complete version of 2-22-94.
