Nirvana’s mere few years as a group have been well documented, From their raucous 1992 set at UK’s Reading Festival, to the funereal Unplugged. This is the first vinyl release of the recording of their seminal Halloween 1991 show. Live At The Paramount encapsulates another moment in their career - but this treat has tricks lurking close behind. Nevermind was released about a month earlier and went gold immediately, and the band’s couldn’t have been more popular - or terrified. Kurt’s singing is at the peak of its power, fully committed to every last growl and shout. These recordings are the definitive live versions of Nevermind tracks such as "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Lithium" and "Endless, Nameless", in addition to Bleach cuts "Love Buzz", "Negative Creep", and "About A Girl". Pressed on double 180g colored vinyl, this release includes a foldout poster.
