Editors’ Notes

The 2004 three-CD box set With the Lights Out was the long-awaited holy grail for Nirvana fans who’d been waiting for better-fidelity versions of rarities for so long that a decade passed. True to record-company form, three additional rarities were “discovered” as the label put together this highlight reel of the box for those who didn’t want to wade through the band’s every utterance. Those bonus cuts are an excellent 1985 demo of “Spank Thru” (from when Kurt Cobain’s band was called Fecal Matter), a 1990 studio demo of “Sappy,” and a raw boombox demo of “Come As You Are.” The highlights include a brutal live reading of Led Zeppelin’s “Heartbreaker,” acoustic solo demos of “About a Girl,” “Lithium,” “Rape Me,” “You Know You’re Right,” “All Apologies,” and “Sliver,” and rehearsal demos of “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Rape Me,” and “Heart Shaped Box.” Sound quality can be wobbly due to sources often being old cassettes, and many of the best moments here are Kurt Cobain's solo performances.

Customer Reviews

One word - WOW.

I've been waiting for this to come out for a LONG time and I wasn't disappointed. Definitely worth buying if you're at all a fan of Nirvana. I'd heard people talk about some of the tracks on this, but hearing them for the first time is amazing - Do Re Mi, the Heart Shaped Box demo, Sappy... They're all great insight to a band that wasn't around quite long enough and will live forever in our hearts. Simply put, amazing stuff here.

Justice For Kurt

O my goodness I was reading the comment by the supposedly Courtney Love and I fell out of my chair laughing hysterical,Sad thing is that was so true. Overall this was a rip of all Nirvana songs

Stupid Geffen

Geffen is definitly trying to milk Nirvana for all it's worth. I'm a die hard fan of Nirvana, but I don't suggest buying this if you have the box set, unless you have an obsession and NEED every Nirvana CD. Something a lot of people aren't realizing is that this has 3 new songs. The version of "Sappy" on this hasn't been released. Anyway, I'm just waiting for the fecal matter demo to come out.

Biography

Formed: 1987 in Aberdeen, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

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...
