NIRVANA in 1989 released “BLEACH” and flew to the world. The finest soundboard album that tells the scene of the first European tour for them is the appearance.
The film included in this film is “November 22, 1989 in Vienna.” This is a stereo soundboard recording. It is also known that this day was broadcast on a local FM station in Austria in 2001, but this work is not an air check. Based on the leaked sound board before the broadcast that became the base, it is one piece that updates the highest peak in length and quality.
Even if you say, you are not the only person who knows the conventional FM sound board, so I will explain from the beginning. First of all, the show position. Let’s check the position of the show from the schedule at the time when the impact sound was hit the world.

<< Completion of “BLEACH” on January 24 >>
・ January 6-February 25: North America # 1 (6 performances)
・ April 1-26: North America # 2 (4 performances)
・ May 26-June 10: North America # 3a (3 performances)
<< June 15 “BLEACH” release >>
・ June 16-October 13: North America # 3b (33 performances)
・ October 23-December 3: Europe (37 performances) ← ★ coco ★

This is NIRVANA of 1989. Until then, they had never experienced a “tour” that repeated stages and movements, and in 1989 only sporadic live shows until “North America # 2”. With the launch of “BLEACH”, he embarked on his first tour “North America # 3” and entered Europe with that momentum. The Vienna performance of this work was the 26th performance of such “Europe” leg.
本 This work recorded at such a site is just a super real sound board. As mentioned above, FM broadcasting was also performed, but it was much later. At the time of recording, although it was a rough mix that was not supposed to be broadcast, it was gorgeous compared to ordinary direct connection. A scorching ensemble that leaves the youth with the best sound of the official class flows directly into the brain. Of course, the sound is much better than FM broadcasting. However, the FM broadcast was monaural and it was just a bit out of the way, so it is incomparable …. I mean, the dimensions of this work are so different that the image of this work is likely to get worse by inquiring.
In addition, it is about 9 minutes long. As a matter of fact, the first song “School” is missing in this leaked sound board, but this work supplemented with the audience recording of the same day. You can fully experience the full set of those days seamlessly. Moreover, this audience recording is also a superb sound that wants to line up “super”. I can clearly hear it only on the sound board. If you don’t know anything, even if you listen with your headphones, it’s a transcendental sound that you can only feel about “Is it even a little touching on the desk knob?”
吹 き Blowing out with such a transcendental sound board is a fierce full show with ambition and instinct bare. Speaking of their first European tour, the official name of the official sound board “MANCHESTER 1989 (Zodiac 200)” is very popular, but about a month later, this set has a different set. Let’s organize while comparing.

・ BLEACH: School (★) / Scoff / Love Buzz / Floyd The Barber / About A Girl / Negative Creep / Blew
・ NEVERMIND: Breed (★)
・ Others: Dive / Spank Thru / Big Cheese / Sappy (★) / Been A Son (★) / Vendetagainst (aka. Help Me, I’m Hungry) (★)
* Note: “★” indicates a song that cannot be heard in “MANCHESTER 1989”

… and it looks like this. With the “BLEACH” number as the main, the repertoire unique to the early days is a fierce rush. As early as “Breed” is playing, you will notice that “Vendetagainst” is even more rare. Although it was recorded as “Help Me, I’m Hungry” in the 2004 BOX set “WITH THE LIGHTS OUT”, it is a very rare song that has been played only a few times with Hong. You can enjoy it with the finest sound board.

Although such a full show alone is full, this work includes three more bonus tracks. In addition, all are super-expensive takes on the 1989 studio sound board. The first was “Do You Love Me?”, Which was provided on the KISS tribute “HARD TO BELIEVE” and was recorded in the spring of 1989. It is a rough take that has been played for a long time, but the sound is superb. Jason Everman, who credited him for not paying for the production costs of “BLEACH”, participated.
The second is a cover of redberry “Ain’t It A Shame”. Take of the same session was recorded in “WITH THE LIGHTS OUT” recorded in August 1989, but this work is a rough mix version. The drummer on this take is Mark Pickerell, also known as the original member of SCREAMING TREES. The last is “Even In His Youth” recorded in September 1989. This is also a rough mix version of the session with “WITH THE LIGHTS OUT”.

流出 This live album will further upgrade the leaked sound board that far exceeds FM broadcasts, allowing you to experience the low sound show of the “BLEACH” era with the finest sound. It is comparable to that daimyo edition “MANCHESTER 1989” … A transcendent one that may exceed it. Please fully enjoy with the permanent preservation press CD.



そんな超絶サウンドボードで吹き出すのは、野心と本能が丸出しになったような苛烈なフルショウ。彼ら初の欧州ツアーと言えば、当店でも公式級サウンドボードの超名盤『MANCHESTER 1989(Zodiac 200)』が大人気となっていますが、約1ヶ月後の本作はセットも異なる。比較しつつ、整理してみましょう。

・BLEACH:School(★)/Scoff/Love Buzz/Floyd The Barber/About A Girl/Negative Creep/Blew
・その他:Dive/Spank Thru/Big Cheese/Sappy(★)/Been A Son(★)/Vendetagainst (aka. Help Me, I’m Hungry)(★)
※注:「★」印は『MANCHESTER 1989』でも聴けない曲。

……と、このようになっています。『BLEACH』ナンバーをメインに、初期ならではのレパートリーが猛ラッシュ。早くも「Breed」が演奏されているのも目を弾きますが、それ以上にレアなのが「Vendetagainst」。2004年のBOXセット『WITH THE LIGHTS OUT』では「Help Me, I’m Hungry」として収録された曲ですが、ホンの数回しか演奏されていない激レア曲。それを極上サウンドボードで楽しめるのです。

そんなフルショウだけでもお腹いっぱいですが、本作はさらに美味しいボーナス・トラックを3曲収録しています。しかも、いずれも1989年のスタジオ・サウンドボードで超極上テイクばかり。1つめはKISSのトリビュート盤『HARD TO BELIEVE』に提供された「Do You Love Me?」で、1989年春に録音されたもの。かなり崩れた演奏ぶりのラフなテイクですが、サウンドは極上。『BLEACH』の制作費を負担したことで演奏していなくてもクレジットされたというジェイソン・エヴァーマンが参加しています。
2つめはレッドベリーのカバー「Ain’t It A Shame」。1989年8月録音で『WITH THE LIGHTS OUT』にも同じセッションのテイクが収録されていますが、本作はラフミックス・バージョンです。このテイクでドラマーを務めているのは、SCREAMING TREESのオリジナル・メンバーとしても知られるマーク・ピッケレルです。最後は1989年9月録音の「Even In His Youth」。これまた『WITH THE LIGHTS OUT』収録セッションのラフミックス版です。

FM放送を遙かに超える流出サウンドボードをさらにアップグレードさせ、『BLEACH』時代のロウなフルショウを極上サウンドで体験できてしまうライヴアルバムです。あの大名盤『MANCHESTER 1989』にも匹敵する……いえ、超えてしまうかも知れない超絶なる1枚。どうぞ、永久保存プレスCDで存分にご堪能ください。

Notes for SBD : Pre-FM soundboard source. Missing Cobain’s opening dialogue about his guitar, the screaming intro, the very first song (‘School’) and some announcer banter after ‘Blew’ about T-shirts being on sale. All other songs and between-song banter are present.

From Nirvana Guide:
Krist got involved with a bunch of drunks in the audience who were disrespecting women, prompting him to give a long speech about how he is a girl and a brief attempt at singing The Who’s “I’m A Boy.”
Tad Doyle most likely played guitar on “Vendetagainst,” since Kurt invited him onstage to play and a guitar can be heard on circulating recordings (the song was normally played without guitar).
