Notes for AUD #1a: In March 2009 a 2nd generation tape surfaced, replacing the 'Before And After The Storm' bootleg as a source. 'Floyd The Barber' is cut within, so that the recording is missing the second chorus. This source can be found on the inferior quality bootleg 'Before And After The Storm'; see Live Nirvana's Bootography Guide To Nirvana Bootlegs for more information on commercial releases of this show.
Notes for AUD #1b: Less complete but of higher quality than AUD #1a. Includes only 'Negative Creep', 'Blew' and 'Endless, Nameless'. Bootleg release; see Live Nirvana's Bootography Guide To Nirvana Bootlegs for more information on commercial releases of this show.
Notes for AUD #2: This source is only available on the bootlegs 'Smells Like NIRVANA' and 'Reading 1991'; see Live Nirvana's Bootography Guide To Nirvana Bootlegs for more information on commercial releases of this show.
Notes for AUD #3: 'Drain You' is cut within. Older ANA(2) versions of this source are also in circulation.
Notes for AUD #4: It's a unique source until the end of 'Love Buzz'. After 'Love Buzz' it becomes AUD #1b. Bootleg release; see Live Nirvana's Bootography Guide To Nirvana Bootlegs for more information on commercial releases of this show.
Notes for AUD #5: Surfaced in May 2013. The recording is distorted due to hot levels. 'Drain You' is cut within.
