Amazing to put a picture to the sound
id listened to the CD audio version of the recording and that was good, but seeing them playing and the chatting in between songs just makes it a much better experience. Awesome DVD, recommend if your a fan of nirvana 100%!

I bought the dvd as I have seen the show on tv and wanted a copy for myself. the dvd is great there is nothing to dislike about it. It's a different type of music to what I normally listen to but this is acoustic and i love that type of music.

a taste of things to come....?
Apart from Jsne's Addiction in 1989, Sonic Youth in '87 and Big Black, also in '87 - Nirvana are probably the best band I ever had the pleasure of being in the same room as. Saw them on their first UK tour in '89 with Chad still on drums, then again a year later with Dave (he nearly blew my ear drums out - I've NEVER seen anyone play the drums so hard). They rocked in the best possible sense of the word on both occasions and School still never fails to make me laugh, 20 years down the road. The humour was, I guess, lost on a lot of people as they seemed too engrossed in the car-crash that was Courtney Love and the effect she seemed to have on people in and around Nirvana but, anyway, she's not the issue here. The unplugged session puts an unfliching light on the band at what was probably a bit of a crossroads for them. There was a lot of talk about divorce, band break ups, heroin etc before and after but this performance - this, to begin with, slightly uptight, nervy performance - showcases a man of remarkable talent backed by a handful of remarkable musicians. Some of them were friends way before this was recorded and it's kind of sad to see the band keeping each other at a distance, almost at arms length, emotionally throughout the show. And WHAT a show. About A Girl through to Where Did You Sleep...classics and covers alike delivered with panache and soul; the unplugged setting giving an almost forensic clarity to Cobain's songs and showing the cleverness behind the choice of covers. Stripped of the fuzzboxes and thunderous drumming, Cobain's songs reveal themselves to be beautifully crafted, deceivingly simple tunes that lodge themselves in your memory as effectively as their noisier incarnations. Surely the sign of a master tune-smith? (if you listen to Steve Albini's first mixes of the In Utero tunes then try them against Scott Litt's radio friendly re-mixes you might almost think you were listening to two different bands). The cello. The "Brothers Meat". The flowers. The candles and the knowledge of the awful loss just a few months later add up with so many other things to give us a snapshot of a man and his band who, given the chance, could have gone on to give us SO much more. Although it would have had to have been on his terms, when he wanted to give it. We should have allowed him a bit of space but now we'll never know. Savour this document, with all its flaws and baggage, for what it is - a brilliant band playing brilliant tunes, the like of which we will probably not see again. (I had one fool try and tell me that Blur's "Girls and Boys" captured the "zeitgeist" in the same way Smells Like Teen Spirit had a few years before....oh, please.......BLUR????) Read full review
