2011 Japanese Super Deluxe Limited Edition 5-disc [4 x SHM-CD / DVD] boxset – Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album’s release, it’s only right that it is marked with a lavish repackaging. Featuring the original album [with an additional spread of B-sides from its singles, and live versions of non-Nevermind tracks ‘Sliver’, ‘Been a Son’ and ‘School’] alongside a collection of cuts from the band’s Smart Sessions [when Chad Channing was still their drummer] and a number of ear-piercing rehearsal takes taped directly onto a boombox. Their full live set from their performance at the Paramount Theatre, Seattle on Halloween 1991 is included on both SHM and DVD. And finally, the ‘Devonshire Mixes’ of ‘Nevermind’, running in the order of the final album, albeit without ‘Polly’ and ‘Endless Nameless’. Butch Vig put these together as the album was coming together, so they’re as much his vision as the band’s – which, to fans, will be welcomed after Andy Wallace’s heavy-handed mixing of ‘Nevermind’ wiped clean some of its rawness. A fantastic and unmissable set pressed on the Japanese-exclusive audiophile SHM [Super High Material] discs, all housed in a sealed deluxe box with a beautifully constructed accompanying 90-page booklet full of rarely and never-before-seen photos, documents and various other visual artifacts of the Nevermind era, with Japanese liner note booklet!
