Nirvana’s ‘Live And Loud’ Set To Make Its Stand-Alone Audio Debut
Recorded at Seattle’s Pier 48, ‘Live And Loud’ originally aired on MTV on New Years Eve in 1993.
On 30 August, the complete Nirvana concert video Live And Loud will be released for the first time as a digital live album and as a 2LP set pressed on 180g audiophile black vinyl through Geffen/Ume on 30 August.
Also available will be a limited edition 2LP, 180g colored vinyl set (LP 1 will be clear + red translucent half-n-half vinyl, LP 2 will be clear + blue translucent half-n-half vinyl). Both vinyl editions are housed in a gatefold jacket and include a replica backstage pass as an audio download card.
Filmed on 13 December, 1993, at Seattle’s Pier 48 (less than a month after the band’s influential MTV Unplugged in New York show taping), Nirvana: Live And Loud originally aired on MTV on New Years Eve in 1993. It was initially released as part of the 20th anniversary of the band’s third and final studio album, In Utero in 2013.
The show in its entirety was previously unreleased although a shorter version had been previously broadcast on MTV and the audio of the song ‘Scentless Apprentice’ appeared on the live compilation album From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah in 1996.
Heralded as one of the best live shows from Nirvana’s entire career, Live And Loud features tracks such as ‘Heart-Shaped Box,’ ‘Come As You Are,’ ‘Breed,’ ‘Pennyroyal Tea’ and ‘Radio Friendly Unit Shifter’ that, as Pitchfork put it, “perfectly encapsulate the In Utero ideal of arena-rock at its most anarchic.”
Live And Loud is out on 30 August. Scroll down to read the full tracklist and buy it here.
