Nirvana Bootography Review: This is one of the more attractive bootlegs and uses semi-reflective gold ink on the inserts ( it doesn't show in the scans). This disc is also a tough-to-find Japanese bootleg (it says it's made in Australia but also contains Japanese writing). Another unique feature is that the artwork includes both as OBI strip and a UPC barcode.... those things are only needed for mainstream commercial discs. Unfortunately, those are the only nice things that can be said about the CD.
The title of the disc isn't clear.... the OBI strip says "Live in San Diego", the cover says "Nirvana - Come As You Are - Rape Me," and the spine says "Dynamic Live".... since the disc also contains the words "Dynamic Live", that's what we'll call it. "Dynamic Live" is a made-up concert... this disc contains tracks from other live shows as well as studio tracks with fan noise dubbed in. Somebody spent a LOT of time carefully editing the tracks to make it sound like a continuous show. The recordings differ slightly in sound quality, so even without the "fantasy set list" that would NEVER have been performed, a careful listener should still know that something funny is going on. The fake crowd noise tends to swell between tracks. If you already have any of the shows this disc steals from, you'll recognize some of the middle tracks ending with "demolition"... the band is killing their instruments... miraculously, they're playing the next song a few seconds later :)
There are quite a few bootleg discs that combine studio tracks with fake crowd noise to sound like a live show. Very few of them use live tracks the way this one does. Somebody put a lot of effort into this piece of junk. It is highly recommended you avoid this disc.
