Notes

This is one of two Spanish variants of Nevermind, known amongst collectors as the 'Eurogram' pressing. The other Spanish pressing is known as the 'Iberofon' pressing. Eurogram was a small pressing plant owned by Polygram Records. Whilst they were trying to setup an independent plant, they ran out of money and the only machines they kept were the pressing machines. Iberofon created all of the acetates, master, mother and father plates as well as the labels. When Iberofon was busy, Eurogram took up some of the strain and pressed some records there. Eurogram-specific master plates were created for records pressed at Eurogram (hence the different matrix codes) but the sleeves are identical between Iberofon and Eurogram pressings.

The matrix codes for each pressing are:
Iberofon
Side 1 – GEF-24425-4 IN3-DMM
Side 2 – GEF-24425-B IN3-DMM

Eurogram
Side 1 – 850 GEF 24425 = *A*1
Side 2 – 850 GEF 24425 = *B*2

Both variants also came with a 12" lyrics sheet, although this contains several spelling mistakes!. The labels have their differences too; the Iberofon pressing has 'Nevermind' and the tracklisting in italics, whereas all of the text on the Eurogram label isn't. The Iberofon pressing also has a 'Desposito Legal' message on the left-hand side and 'Cara A' on the right; the Eurogram pressing sticks to '1' and '2'. The Eurogram pressing also features a Sub Pop logo on its label.

Great sound, really better than the reissue from 2001.
Dynamic without sibilance.
The way to go to have an original pressing without spend a lot of money
