Albums Of The Week: Nirvana | Nevermind 30th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition

The latest edition of the grunge landmark is expanded with four vintage concerts.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “The Sept. 24, 1991 release of Nirvana’s Nevermind touched off a seismic shift in global youth culture. Rising to No. 1 worldwide in a few months, its impact would elevate Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl from a promising Pacific Northwest cult band to one of the most successful and influential artists of all time. Nevermind returned integrity and passion to the top of the charts, and continues to be a singular inspiration to fans and musicians alike over the last three decades — as it no doubt will for generations to come.

The newly released 30th anniversary deluxe edition of Nevermind includes the original album, newly remastered from the original half-inch stereo analog tapes to high-resolution 192kHz 24-bit. The set features a total of 94 audio and video tracks — including a whopping 70 previously unreleased cuts. The bulk of the new material comes in the form or four complete live shows that document Nirvana’s historic ascension on the concert stage:

Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands (recorded and filmed on Nov. 25, 1991 at the famed club Paradiso);

Live in Del Mar, California (recorded Dec. 28, 1991 at the Pat O’Brien Pavilion at the Del Mar Fairgrounds);

Live in Melbourne, Australia for triple j (recorded Feb. 1, 1992 at The Palace);

Live in Tokyo, Japan (recorded Feb. 19, 1992 at the Nakano Sunplaza).

The set also includes a vinyl single with the A-side of Endless, Nameless and the B-sides Even In His Youth and Aneurysm), and a Blu-ray of Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands.”
