Nirvana Nevermind Deluxe Edition 180g Vinyl 4LP

 

On the occasion of Neverminds 20th anniversary, Universal releases a 4LP 180-gram vinyl 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition that features the remastered album, the B-sides, the Smart Studio demos, the boombox rehearsals and the BBC sessions.

 

"No album in recent history had such an overpowering impact on a generation a nation of teens suddenly turned punk and such a catastrophic effect on its main creator. The weight of success led already troubled singer-guitarist Kurt Cobain to take his own life in 1994. But his slashing riffs, corrosive singing and deviously oblique writing, rammed home by the Pixies-via-Zeppelin might of bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl, put the warrior purity back in rock & roll." - www.rollingstone.com

 

Released in September 1991, Nirvanas sophomore album and major label debut elevated Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl from a critically acclaimed Aberdeen, Washington, cult band to generational spokesmen who unwittingly created a cultural shift and musical touchstone. Rising to No. 1 the world over by years end and ultimately selling over 30 million copies worldwide, Nevermind would come to be much more than one of the most successful and influential albums of its or any era.

 

As the album that returned unaffected rock n roll integrity and passion to the top of the charts, Nevermind would prove a singular inspiration to fans and musicians alike over the last two decades and will undoubtedly do so for generations to come.

 

"'It's just about people and what they're expected to act like,' Cobain said. 'The lines in the song are really contradictory. They're kind of a rebuttal to each other.' The song [Come As You Are] is driven by a simple riff that Vig goosed with a flanged, subaquatic guitar effect. Cobain apparently lifted it from a 1985 song by U.K. art-metal band Killing Joke, whom Dave Grohl paid back 12 years later by drumming on their 2003 album." - Rolling Stone

"'I don't like rednecks, I don't like macho men,' Cobain once said.

 

This track about a guy who 'loves to shoot his gun' would become one of Nirvana's biggest live anthems. It started out as more of a hardcore rant. 'It sounded like a Bad Brains song,' said Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. Then, 'One day Kurt called me and started singing. It was the 'In Bloom' of Nevermind, more of a pop thing.'" - Rolling Stone
