Editors’ Notes

Legend has it that Nirvana’s first album cost all of $606.17 to record, and no one in the band had the money to pay for it except “second guitarist” Jason Everman, who didn’t play on the record and was only briefly a member. The Seattle label Sub Pop—very deliberately marketing a Pacific Northwest “grunge” scene—determined the running order (after only requesting an EP) and, according to Kurt Cobain, influenced his writing toward the dark, negative, and outrageous. Fair enough, but there’s pure inspiration in the rage of “Negative Creep,” “School,” and “Mr. Mustache” and signs of pop in “About a Girl.” The 20th-anniversary deluxe edition features a March 2009 remastering from the original tapes by George Marino. It also adds a pre-fame live concert from the Pine Street Theatre in Portland, Ore., in February 1990; it's an early look at the group’s live abilities based on a repertoire of Bleach and early tracks such as “Sappy,” “Spank Thru,” a cover of The Vaselines’ “Molly’s Lips,” and “Been a Son.”

Customer Reviews

great music, over produced

why remaster the songs? I had the original cd and was way better. Leave raw Nirvana alone. Can i still get the old one?

Remastered crap

Why must everything be remastered? It goes against all that was lost to soon. I have the original copy, raw untouched and beautiful in a way that only few could understand. def not remastered. Shame on those who wish to profit on a man who never would have approved this. I shall listen to my well over 20 yr old copy and relish what the good old days used to be. Rip kc

Prior to Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores, and major labels considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band's second album, 1991's Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing them into the American mainstream like no other band to date. While their sound was equal parts Black Sabbath (as learned by fellow Washington underground...
