Nirvana

In Utero, the third and final Nirvana studio album, turns 20 next month, and Universal is planning a massive box-set reissue of it, complete with a truckload of extras. And this morning, we learn what all those extras are. As it turns out, the massive three-CD/one-DVD version of the reissue includes the complete album, various much-loved B-sides and compilation tracks from the era, the December 1993 Seattle live show that broadcast on MTV as Live & Loud (on CD and DVD), live tracks, demos, and the Steve Albini-mixed versions of “Heart Shaped Box” and “All Apologies.” Confoundingly, the set also includes a second full version of the album, the remastered “2013 mix.” This demands the question: Who in the fuck needs to hear a remastered version of In Utero? Did they think they could make it sound better than the original? I guess we’ll see! Check the full tracklist below.

  1. I have most of these from outcesticide bootlegs from my youth. #Iam30

  2. “Forgotten Tune” / “Jam” … SOLD !

  3. As someone who hasn’t heard any demo or unreleased song from this era, I am SO excited for this! In Utero is arguably the best Nirvana album (or at least the best-sounding album).

  4. As far as I know the Albini mixes were never mastered (correct me if I’m wrong), so it’ll be cool to hear mastered versions of them.
