What is the Mispress aspect of this release? Nothing is cited, and Kurt's name is misspelled on many other releases without the mispress tag so surely that can't be it.

The second disc of the live recording is really reason enough to get this version. Sounds awesome and the band is really nice tight and plays a great show.

Someone is trying to sell a framed copy of this on FB Marketplace, except only the LP2 is framed along with the jacket lol. They're asking $150 hahahaha. Just thought that was hilarious and wanted to share ;)

Sounds really good, especially the drums which are powerful as all hell but the midrange and vocals sound a little bit more compressed than on my 2001 reissue mastered by John Golden which also has a bit more separation and clarity. The drums and bass always sound great on Nirvana records, it’s getting the details in the midrange to pop that’s the difficult part and when that occurs the sound is a lot more full and well rounded. This version ain’t bad but it definitely isn’t the best I’ve heard this album sound and it will surely serve as a playable copy and the price is right.

My copy sounds great, minimal surface noise, full heavy sound, and it’s gorgeous and matches the artwork/album theme perfectly.

Hi All,

I'm having a version with below identification;

Sub Pop – 9878700341
9878(4)0034-1+A OR
9878(4)0034-1+B OR

Would that be another version of this pressing?
