20th anniversary edition of Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ to be released

If you ever wanted an excuse to feel old, figure this. Some twenty years ago Nirvana released an album that would catapult them into the pop mainstream and launch the Seattle based punk band to mega stardom.

Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ etched Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl into the rock history books reaching #1 across the globe, becoming one of the biggest bands of the 90s and selling 30 million copies to date.

To commemorate this 20th anniversary Universal Music Enterprises is releasing a full spectrum re-release of ‘Nevermind’. The highlight of the package is a 4 CD/1 DVD Super Deluxe Edition that unearths literally dozens of previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings including a Halloween 1991 concert at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.

This edition will also include the first full official release of the pre-Nevermind demos recorded at producer Butch Vig’s Smart Studios, as well as boombox recordings of subsequent rehearsals.

Release date: 27th September 2011

UPDATE: Nirvana’s VEVO page on YouTube has been posting excellent high quality videos of Nirvana performances from 1991/92, including Reading Festival ’92 and Live at the Paramount ’91. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/user/NirvanaVEVO
