Disappointing Nirvana live recordings
on 26 September 2004
I was fortunate enough to see Nirvana preform live (supported by the Buzzcocks) in Grenoble, France on 18 February 1993. It was not long after that Nirvana played their last ever concert.
The band played an absolutely fantastic gig before a small crowd of people. The performance was loud, polished and very powerful. There certainly did not seem to be anything wrong with Kurt (although he was a little withdrawn).
Either way, the performance I saw was much better than what has been captured in this live CD. The song recordings stretch over the duration of their live career and includes an interesting selection of songs. However, the quality of many of the tracks is not particularly good and genuinely lose the power of the band in concert.
I look forward to hearing some more substantial releases over the next few years.
