Released this week: Nirvana - Feels Like The First Time...
Nirvana - Feels Like The First Time (Smokin')
With In Utero topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic following its September 1993 release, Nirvana's celebrity was not in question. When it was announced that the band would be headlining at Seattle s Pier 48 on 13th December 1993, with a bill that was also to feature The Breeders, Cypress Hill and Pearl Jam, fans braved pouring rain to queue overnight for free tickets.
Pier 48 s cavernous warehouse on Seattle's lakefront couldn t have been a more perfect venue for the ultimate grunge showcase, and with the show broadcast across multiple TV and Radio networks for all to enjoy, the gig s legacy was assured. The Nirvana set played that cold December night almost 20 years ago is included on this CD.
Also included is a second Nirvana broadcast of the band's show at The Palace, in Melbourne, Australia on 2nd February, 1992, with Nirvana showcasing much of what was then their new album, Nevermind. Finally an additional four tracks from the two appearances Nirvana made on legendary American sketch show Saturday Night Live are also made available. Together, these vintage recordings complete this career spanning package and provide the ultimate collection of live Nirvana performances.
