  • [X] Pig Meat Papa
  • [X] Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

A recording is known to exist, but is not circulating.

Hit it or Quit It Editor, Jessica Hopper, assisted in recording this impromptu session while visiting the Cobains at their 11301 Lakeside Ave. NE rented home, One day they had me hold a microphone while they recorded some songs together. They did Pig Meat Papa by Leadbelly, and I was holding the mic and Frances at the same time, and she was crying a little. You could hear it in the recording. They were singing it together. Kurt was playing. They did two Leadbelly songs, that other one they ended up doing on MTV Unplugged and then she tried to get him to play something else. (1)
