Nirvana Live At Reading 180g 2LP
Ranked #1 in Kerrang Magazine's "100 Gigs That Shook The World" and voted as "Nirvana's #1 Greatest Moment" by fans in an NME poll, Nirvana's historic August
30, 1992 headlining appearance at the UK's Reading Festival is one of the most
bootlegged concerts in the annals of rock'n'roll.
Fans now have an opportunity to own a copy of this never-before-released 1992
performance on 180g vinyl!
While the show’s centerpiece was a performance of nearly the entire Nevermind
tracklist, also noteworthy were early performances of three as of 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." The
career-spanning setlist also reached back to the band’s 1989 Sub Pop debut
album, Bleach, for “Blew,” “About A Girl,” “School,” “Negative Creep” and even
further back to the mid-'80s for “Spank Thru.”
"Nirvana headlining at Reading in 1992 was something you had to see, and if
you didn't see it then it was something you pretended you saw." - Kerrang
"The staggering energy and intensity radiating from the stage never let up...
Cobain's ravaged pop songs coming off like some dream marriage of the Sex
Pistols and the Beatles, borne on bracing waves of distorted guitar noise."
- Rolling Stone (October 29, 1992)
