Original 1970 UK plum & red Atlantic label 12-track vinyl LP featuring a veritable 'who's who' of UK classic rock heroes – Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, John Bonham, Nicky Hopkins, Noel Redding, etc & produced by Jimmy Page. Superb front laminated picture sleeve. The sleeve has only a few signs of age with only light laminate lift/crease on the edges to show for being over 40 years old, the vinyl has only a couple of light surface marks which has no effect on play. A very respectable copy.
2011 Japanese Super Deluxe Limited Edition 5-disc [4 x SHM-CD / DVD] boxset – Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album's release, it's only right that it is marked with a lavish repackaging. Featuring the original album [with an additional 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. Their full live set from their performance at the Paramount Theatre, Seattle on Halloween 1991 is included on both SHM and DVD. And finally, the '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, all housed in a sealed 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!
Great set of Seven UK LPs comprising the studio albums from Unorthodox Behaviour up to Is There Anything About? plus the live album Livestock, all being small Mad Hatter or Blue Charisma label issues, except Is There Anything About? which was released through CBS. All sleeves remain in at least excellent; the vinyl are predominantly near mint in condition – a great collection at an advantageous price.
