Nirvana Bootography Rating: B  86%

Nirvana Bootography Review:
This disc suffers from a LOT of editing ( between every song) and rough sound quality. It's a real shame because it sounds like this CD was taken from a generated tape source, and there might be a high quality audience recording floating around (without the editing). The recording, while rough, lacks the crowd noise usually found on audience recordings. If not for the relatively early date for this show, and the fact that it can't be found on any other commercially available CD, this disc would receive a lower rating. It's believed that this disc first surfaced in 1992.

The show is similar to the other 1989 European shows with some variety to the setlist including an early "Breed" and a good "Mr. Moustache" which wasn't played very often. The continuity is destroyed by the editing, so it's difficult to tell how the band was feeling... the song performances are good though.

There are mastering errors on tracks 7, 11, and 13 where the sound drops out for a second early in the song. "Negative Creep" is cut in the beginning of the song. There are several variations of this disc that can be distinguished by the different color writing found on the inserts. The known color variations include yellow, green, and purple. All known variations contain errors on those three tracks.

This isn't a disc for a beginning collector or someone who cannot tolorate a rough audience recording. The rating is very generous.
