Nirvana-Nevermind-550354NIRVANA Nevermind

2011 Japanese Super Deluxe Limited Edition 4-SHM-CD/DVD boxset – Celebrating 20 years since the album's release, it's only right that it is marked with a lavish repackaging, and sure enough a four SHM-CD-and-one-DVD sethas been assembled. Featuring the original album [plus a spread of B sides from its singles, and live versions of non-Nevermind tracks Sliver, Been a Son and School] alongside a collection of cuts from the band's Smart Sessions – when Chad Channing was still their drummer – and a number of ear-piercing rehearsal takes taped directly onto a boombox. A full live set fills one of the remaining discs, recorded live at the Paramount Theatre, Seattle for Halloween 1992. This also makes up the Region 2 DVD [certain clips were taken from the performance for the band's 1994 video, 'Live! Tonight! Sold Out!!'], along with the iconic 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' music video and those for the rest of 'Nevermind''s singles. And the final CD is home to perhaps the most fascinating tracks: 'Devonshire Mixes' of 'Nevermind', running in the order of the final album, albeit without 'Polly' and 'Endless Nameless'. Butch Vig put these together as the album was coming together, so they're as much his vision as the band's – which, to fans, will be welcomed after Andy Wallace's heavy-handed mixing of 'Nevermind' wiped clean some of its rawness. A fantastic and unmissable set pressed on the Japanese-exclusive audiophile SHM [Super High Material] discs, presented in a deluxe box with a beautifully constructed accompanying 90-page booklet full of rarely and never-before-seen photos, documents and various other visual artifacts of the Nevermind era, with Japanese liner note booklet and custom stickered factory shrink.
