Description

Recorded in November 1993, less than six months before singer Kurt Cobain passed away, Nirvana's MTV Unplugged is a watershed document that presents the band at the peak of its powers. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. Kurt Cobain’s songwriting was revealed to be just as emotionally hefty, even without the dynamism of Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl’s normal volume - indeed, the thought of Grohl drumming with brushes is a strange one even now. Recorded in November 1993, less than six months before singer Kurt Cobain killed himself, Nirvana's MTV Unplugged is a watershed document that presents the band at the peak of its powers. Expanded to include 5 rehearsal performances previously only available on DVD, the anniversary release also features an exclusive gatefold jacket including anniversary silver foil detail on the front and back cover.

All songs written by Kurt Cobain and published by The End of Music (SESAC) / BMG Rights Management (UK) Ltd (PRS) except "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam" written by Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee and published by Domino Publishing Company Of America, Inc. This double LP version blows the single disc out of the water in terms of sonics, and is definitely the one to own. It’s a nakedly emotional record, unintentionally so, as the subtext means more than the main themes of how Nirvana wanted to prove its worth and diversity, showcasing the depth of their songwriting.Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since.

This posthumously released live album, recorded at Sony Music Studios, New York on November 18, 1993 for MTV’s Unplugged series, was an intimate, acoustic session that was a definite departure from Nirvana’s previous outing, In Utero. Unlike any other unplugged affair, the diverse album is not a simple stripped-down regurgitation of greatest hits or a cash-it-in set of nostalgic favorites.

Recorded in November 1993, six months before the death of singer Kurt Cobain, and released in November 1994, this mainly acoustic performance by Nirvana for the MTV Unplugged series captures the band at their peak.If In Utero is a suicide note, MTV Unplugged in New York is a message from beyond the grave, a summation of Kurt Cobain’s talents and pain so fascinating, it’s hard to listen to repeatedly. In addition to the 180gm black vinyl edition that will be available wherever fine vinyl is sold, an exclusive, limited edition colored vinyl edition will be available only at Nirvana. Upon finding out that Nirvana would be playing its lesser known songs and covers from bands like Meat Puppets, MTV tried to pressure the band into playing more of their hits, or inviting more popular bands to play with the band.

Regularly heralded as one of the finest live albums of all time, Nirvana’s iconic MTV Unplugged In New York is being re-issued in expanded form to mark the 25th anniversary of its release.

Well, it’s certainly a combination of both, how the version of the Vaselines’ “Jesus Doesn’t Want Me for a Sunbeam” or the three covers of Meat Puppets II songs mean as much as “All Apologies” or “Something in the Way. Almost all of our vinyl discs will include either an original inner sleeve, or a plain inner sleeve, or a printed inner sleeve, which we provide with the sole purpose of protecting the record. The bonus rehearsal material is a nice time capsule extra to boot (Pennyroyal Tea is especially interesting as it is in a different, higher key, the performance version is much better).The album had a huge impact when it came out, selling seven million copies within six months of its release.

Due to inventory and accounting purposes, we do not exchange items received for different items than originally purchased.Save for renditions of 'All Apologies' and 'Come As You Are', the adventurous material includes brooding covers of the Meat Puppets' 'Lake of Fire', 'Plateau', and 'Oh Me' as well as harrowing versions of David Bowie's 'The Man Who Sold the World', and the Vaselines' 'Jesus Don't Want Me for a Sunbeam'.
