Nirvana Live at Reading

I know this sounds corny, but the reason I started playing guitar was because of Nirvana.

With that said, I have been thoroughly enjoying the latest Nirvana live release,
Live at Reading. The album was released in multiple formats including a CD/DVD combo. From the opening chords of "Breed", to the feedback laden destruction of "Territorial Pissings", the album gives fans a glimpse to the chaos that Nirvana brought to the stage every night.

The DVD is the real gem of this release. The bands 1992 Reading Festival performance is one the bands most celebrated. The set featured early versions of "Tourette's", "All Apologies", and "Dumb", which would wind up on their 1993 release
In Utero.

Nirvana may have only been around for seven years, but in those seven years, the band accomplished more than most bands do in a lifetime. If you are just getting into Nirvana or have been a long time fan, this is a must have release.
Live at Reading is a prime example of Nirvana kicking ass and taking names, which is what they did best.
