Nirvana: Reading Festival 08-30-1992
I haven't revisited Nirvana since their box set came out in 2004, but I recently stumbled across this recording from the Reading Festival in 1992. If I remember my Nirvana lore correctly, this was the show at which Kurt Cobain was wheeled on stage in a wheelchair wearing a blond wig amid much speculation that the band was breaking up. The show itself is a beautiful disaster - in other words, it's classic live Nirvana. The set includes pre-In Utero versions of "Tourette's", "Dumb" and "All Apologies" along with b-sides "D-7" and "Spank Thru".
