Product Description

Released as part of the Nirvana Nevermind 20th Anniversary, this special performance was recorded in the band's hometown of Seattle on 31st October 1991, capturing Nirvana in the early stages of their ascent to one of the most important bands of their generation. It is the only known Nirvana concert shot to film and so is the only high definition footage of the band known to exist. This is the first time the legendary gig has been available in it's entirety.

The concert has been transferred from 16mm film and multi-track audio and is available in 1080p high-definition picture with uncompressed 5.1 surround sound and stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Shine a light" for Generation X 30 Sep 2011
After allowing my right index finger to hover over the "buy" button for the 75 Nevermind 20th Anniversary box set that includes this film but in DVD format, I decided to indulge in just a little taste. After pre-ordering, the excitement I experienced reminded me of the release of the live Reading festival DVD & CD. Those who purchased either may have like myself been slightly disappointed. Although those I know who attended Reading on that August Sunday back in 92 either became true believers or simply had their faith cemented for the Church of Nirvana, the reproduction quality for Album & DVD was not "quite" there. This was down to Kurt who had started his descent into his suicidal drug abyss. Dave & Krist's performance were as tight as ever but as I was to learn from certain biographies both official and unofficial, they had not rehearsed as a group for at least a month before the reading set. Indeed the show nearly did not go ahead. Throughout the Reading DVD there were moments when you could see the odd flash in Kurt's playing, singing & general body language which seemed (to me) to remind him of what made him fall in love with live music and this is what probably ignited the crowd to create the atmosphere which helped produce a concert which was widely regarded as a high contributing factor to the band's "Seminal" acclaim. And I love every moment of both DVD & CD! I guess after so many years I wanted just a bit too much pleasure from a source that only had so much to give and at the end of the day is simply no longer with us.

Or so I thought?

Nirvana Live At The Paramount whether it be on disc, DVD or Blu-Ray must, I repeat MUST be amongst the collection of any true Nirvana fan. It is brilliant! Furthermore it is the band at their peak!

2.0 out of 5 stars Still sync issues 28 Dec 2013

Great gig and only Nirvana concert captured on film.

2 years after release the bluray is still out of sync... Universal refuse to fix .... Sadly, you need to stick with the DVD.

I have waited YEARS to see this concert after the clips included in the "Live! Tonight! Sold Out!" VHS (yes, VHS) from years ago gave me hope the whole concert will one day be released.

I was bought this for my birthday at the start of this month and after reading the review on, I was majorly disappointed to find the audio sync was out, just as had been stated in their review.

The video quality is stunning. The audio is stunning. They're just wildly out of sync, VERY much so. Such a shame.

I must state that whilst a lot of people have complained about the issue, some people haven't noticed it. Also, these issues are NOT present on the DVD from what I have heard nor the many TV broadcasts (including one I watched last night on BBC Four during their 'Nirvana night').

Universal released a statement, which seems to have helped no one with this issue.

"If you are experiencing issues with playback of your Nirvana "Live At The Paramount" Blu-Ray, it is likely due to a Settings issue. The master and test discs have been QC'd numerous times on multiple players to confirm that they are correct. Here are some trouble-shooting solutions to consider:
1. Please make sure your player is running the latest firmware available from the manufacturer of your device. If not up to date, please update according to the manufacturer's guidelines.
2. Please try to power down your player (reboot) as this sometimes clears the cache of the player and remedies a playback issue.
3. If you are using a separate audio system for sound, please check to see if your system supports the audio configuration listed on the disc's packaging.

Great concert. If you're a Nirvana fan you must have this in your collection. I would have liked a few more bonus features, but the content is so good it doesn't matter too much.
