Nirvana announce MTV Unplugged In New York reissue

From Loudersound.

Nirvana have announced they’ll celebrate the 25th anniversary of their iconic MTV Unplugged Live In New York album with a reissue on November 1.

The band’s memorable live album was originally released on November 1, 1994, and featured reworked versions of well-worn Nirvana classics including Come As You Are, Pennyroyal Tea and Something In The Way, as well as covers of artists including David Bowie (The Man Who Sold The World), Meat Puppets (Plateau, Oh, Me, Lake Of Fire) and Lead Belly (Where Did You Sleep Last Night).

The album has beed noted as a devastating document of an artist struggling with his craft, even after all the success Kurt Cobain had experienced with his band. The album was posthumously released on record as simply Unplugged In New York after Cobain’s death. Since then, it has proved to be as defining a part of Nirvana’s history as any of their three official studio releases.

The reissued album has been expanded to include five rehearsal performances previously only available on DVD, and will launch as a double LP set with a gatefold jacket and silver foil detail on the front and back cover.

An 180gm black vinyl edition will be available in stores, while a limited edition coloured vinyl edition will be available only from Nirvana’s official site while stocks last.

MTV Unplugged In New York is available to pre-order now.

    NIRVANA Live At Reading (2009 UK 24-track CD - Ranked #1 in Kerrang Magazine's '100 Gigs That Shook The World' and voted as 'Nirvana's #1 Greatest Moment' by fans in an NME poll, Nirvana's historic August 30th 1992 headlining appearanceatthe UK's Reading Festival is one of the most bootlegged concerts in the annals of rock'n'roll. Now, fans have an opportunity to own a pristine copy of that entire performance. While the show's centerpiece was a performance of nearly the entire'Nevermind' tracklist, also noteworthy were early performances of three as yet unrecorded songs which wouldn't be released until 2 years later on 'In Utero' ['All Apologies', 'Dumb', and in its first ever public performance, 'Tourette's']. The career-spanning setlist also reached back to the band's 1989 Sub Pop debut album, 'Bleach,' for 'Blew,' 'About A Girl,' 'School,' 'Negative Creep' and even further back to the mid-'80s for 'Spank Thru'; plus tracks that would appear in studio form on the 'Incesticide' compilation later in the year: 'Aneurysm,' 'Been A Son' and 'Sliver.' Additionally, the band played a pair of beloved covers by two bands that helped shape the formative Nirvana sound – 'The Money Will Roll Right In' by Fang and 'D-7' by The Wipers; digipak picture sleeve which remains sealed in the hype-stickered shrink)
