Nirvana Bootography Review: Discs five and six get a mixed review because a few of the tracks are defective. The defective tracks only affect the John Peel Sessions, so the show escapes unscathed. It appears that Tribute source for the Peel sessions had errors that make the tracks "click" or leave a split second of silence.
The show that is split between the discs in only available in this box set. It's an excellent recording from an open mic source. The crowd can be heard, but doesn't interfere too badly. The set list, while long, doesn't contain any rare performances. The band appears to be "on" and is more lively than usual. It's nice to have a complete show, especially hearing the band play before it's "home crowd."
The final track is Courtney's eulogy. It's a perfectly clear recording, but can be found on several bootleg discs. It's the type of thing you'll only listen to once.
The John Peel sessions are a shame. An excellent, almost perfect, box set is marred by this error. The good news is that these tracks can be obtained in their entirety on "The Eternal Legacy" as well as many other discs. "The Eternal Legacy" is the best place to replace these and get the '91 Del Mar show at the same time.
