nirvana

The Wishkah show was alright, and the Unplugged performance has never really faded into the background, so now comes news that the (arguable) pièce de résistance of Nirvana performance footage — their infamous headlining performance at England’s annual Reading Festival on August 30, 1992 — will bow as a limited edition CD+DVD (and singular DVD and CD versions) on November 3, 2009. A 2 LP version will follow two weeks later on November 17, 2009.

According to the press announcement, “only 2 of the 25 performances” of the set captured on the Nirvana at Live at Reading DVD “have ever been released before.” In addition to most of Nevermind, a handful of Bleach material and two cover songs (“The Money Will Roll Right In” by Fang and “D-7” by The Wipers) the band also treated the audience to “early performances of three as yet unrecorded songs which wouldn’t be released until 2 years later on In Utero: ‘All Apologies, ‘Dumb,’ and in its first ever public performance, tourette’s.’”
