5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of history, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live in Buenos Aires 1992 (Audio CD)
At last an early Nirvana gig at a great price and in its entirety. I'd read about this concert in several Cobain biographies as the band were deeply aggrieved with the audience for booing off their support act "Calamity Jane". Throughout the concert the band seek to annoy and tease the crowd. Opener "Nobody knows I'm New Wave" is described on the CD as a jam and the lyrics are clearly being improvised on the spot with Cobain shouting that he can defecate on stage and on their heads ! I feel he's claiming that as part of Nirvana he could play anything and get away with it while the previous act was unfairly sent packing. Whatever the case he doesn't sound too happy. Twice the band play the intro to "Smells like Teen Spirit" before heading off into other songs. A kind of "Here's what you could have had" as the band choose not to give the audience their best known tune. The sound quality isn't too bad considering it is not an official release but is obviously inferior to most of the live recordings on the box sets, Reading and Muddy Banks releases. However the appeal of owning this concert is that you add a piece of history to your collection. This is one of the greatest rock bands of the last 40 years at the height of their fame on great form. The setlist is fantastic (aside from the deliberate exclusion of Teen Spirit) and the band sound heavier and angrier than on the studio albums. Songs such as Breed and Drain You are taken to a new level and as each song flies by you realise how great a live act these guys were. The whole gig (which is only 58 minutes long) can be watched on You Tube. Come As you Are is one of several comedy moments with Cobain either forgetting the lyrics or perhaps just choosing to grunt his way through the first verse. Also check out the mock techno introduction to Been a Son ! A fantastic addition to any Nirvana collection.

I totally agree with this great review, but please note this is not the entire gig. This version is missing the last 4 songs: 'Negative Creep', 'Blew', 'All Apologies' and 'Endless, Nameless'.
