Nirvana - Rough Tapes



Now don't get me wrong , I really like Nirvana. But I don't understand all this hero-worship that Cobain continues to get. They did make some great music and were a particularly powerful live act but Kurt Cobain was not a demi-god by any stretch of the imagination. Having said that, the completist in me owns about 50-75 Nirvana discs (lost count a while back) and I will share this as a first taste. This is great for demo's and rehearsal cuts and is a great introduction to unreleased Nirvana songs. The only complaint about their bootlegs, as well as most otghers - is uneven production and sound quality. Regardless, this one is quite enjoyable and should prepare you to delve deeper into their catalog. Also, all of these cuts are available on the 8 disc 'Outcesticide' box - which comes super highly recommended. Just don't ask me to upload it any time soon - I have way too many other diverse albums in the pipeline for all of you.
