Nirvana Bootography Review: Pretty good early show, but it sounds kind of "muddy" & "drowned out." It is an audience recording from the "Sub Pop 200" release party. It is missing the intro to the show which is available on the disc "Live In Seattle." An extremely nice "important" show which Nirvana played. Too bad the recording isn't that dynamic.
I think the art is pretty good.... better than the disc "Live In Seattle" anyway. The sound quality of the two discs is about the same. "Live In Seattle" combines the "Intro" with the first track... the Intro is an excerpt from "The Raven," some added commentary and an introduction of the band by one of the head Sub Pop guys (Poneman??).... you might want to listen to it twice, and then you won't care about it again. "Christmas In Seattle 1988" does include the bonus tracks and the art is a little nicer... I would recommend it slightly over "Live In Seattle," but either way, it's a very cool performance by a fledgling band.
** Thanks to Soundgod for the alternative disc pressing scan (located on the additional artwork page)
