Notes for SBD #1: Complete pre-FM soundboard recording. Professionally mixed by Phil McKellar in 1992. This is the best sounding and most complete source overall (it is just missing some drumbeats at the very start of the show that are present on SBD #2). This pre-FM source can be found on bootlegs, but bootlegs are sourced from the trading circle version and so should be avoided; see Live Nirvana's Bootography Guide To Nirvana Bootlegs for more information on commercial releases of this show.
Notes for SBD #2: Incomplete post-FM radio broadcast. Professionally remixed by Phil McKellar in 1999 and broadcast on Triple J Radio in 2005. Includes 9 songs only: 'About A Girl', 'Come As You Are', 'Lithium', 'Breed', 'Polly', 'Lounge Act', 'Love Buzz', 'Negative Creep' and 'Blew'. Lower quality and less complete than SBD #1 overall but this version besides being an alternate mix does include some additional drumbeats at the start of the show.
Notes for SBD #3: Incomplete post-FM broadcast. Original live mix, aired in 1998 on Triple J Radio. Includes 3 songs only: 'Negative Creep', 'On A Plain' and 'Blew'. In July 2010 a FM>DAT(2)>FLAC version was circulated, replacing older FM>ANA(1) versions.
SPECIAL NOTES Special thanks to Tim Bucknall, Kris Sproul and Javier Diaz for their painstaking analysis of these sources. | all documents, unless otherwise noted, © 2004 | Contact webmaster
