        Don't buy this. Its just some moron who took a Flac File off of Reddit and pressed it onto vinyl. *wink*

          I purchased a copy of this yesterday when I stumbled across it at a record store...I was floored as I've been wanting a good copy of this for over 25 years now...I was even more floored to find out the 2 discs were pressed with two different shades of swirled fecal brown wax! They really look amazing..I'm a HUGE Nirvana/Kurdt fan and I've heard several different versions of this thru the years and every one sounded pretty awful quality wise...and I'm pretty positive I've never heard it in its complete and proper form till now as 4-5 of the tracks sounded completely new to me...and the entire recording sounds just about as clear and crisp as you could ever expect a 4 track recording to sound, I was especially taken by how crystal Kurdts vocals sound..everything else could stand to be mixed a little higher and I couldn't imagine what some of this would sound like had a real recording engineer been at the controls...there were some neat and interesting suprises here, being the huge fan I am it made me laugh, cry, and bob my head along to the tracks. Kurdts vocals sound great and even hilarious at times, you can really hear him trying to find the sound that would grow into the powerful, abrassive, beautiful and poppy monster Nirvana would later become...some of the solos on this recording are phenomenal! You can almost invision an 18 year old Kurt setting on his bed practicing and honing his solo skills with a huge smile on his face...you can hear a wide range of influences coming thru in his guitar playing and vocals, particularly bands like the Butthole Surfers, Led Zeppelin, Black Flag, Black Sabbath, Devo, and the Bad Brains...its very child like at times, almost innocent as well and that put a huge smile on my face😀👍...I haven't been this excited about a record purchase in a long time, $26 bucks well spent...its amazing that after listening to this band for as long as
          I have theres still a few suprises left for me...incredible!...I dont know who is responsible for getting a higher quality version of this recording to a record pressing plant, apparently somewhere in Italy, but I for one can say I am extremely pleased and happy with the end results and would like to send out a huge thank you to the partie(s) involved!...if you see this dont hesitate to pick it up...you will not be disapointed.😃👍👍👍👍👍

            This is the best commercial release to get the FM demo. Don’t even consider any others, as they are all incomplete and far inferior.
