    Great pressing. Flat and quiet 10/10

    Sound VERY detailed to the most minute details. If you have a great pair of cans you’ll want to wear them for this one. You’ll hear things you haven’t heard before. Mix also 10/10

      I've listened to this on CD and MP3 for decades and ive heard sounds that I've never heard before on this release.

        Sounds good! Can hear the crowd well and the guitar sounds good!

          FINALLY found my version of this record on here. I thought I was going crazy. You will notice that the label reads "All Song Written by Kurt Kobain". Typo and misspelling of Cobain might make this a desirable find for my fellow Nirvana-nerds.

            Really sounds like you’re at the show, the audio is extremely clear. Also uses the ORG stampers from 2010, and they’re still being used for the purple target release! Amazing buy, recommend this to everyone!

              Mine seems to have a defect where a 2nd label was pressed onto it (offset). It partially covers the grooves of "Where did you sleep last night". Also, there appears to be some strange "fraying" on the outside edge? Has anyone else seen defects with their copy of this?

                Live sound. Great editing. There is nothing to compare it with, but it sound very good.

                  This one is essentially an ORG press at a bargain price, except it's on 33 so you only have to flip the album once. The music is without need for introduction. This is THE version for any rock fan to collect and doesn't go hard on the wallet.

                    Holy Cobain! The reviews wasn’t kidding. The stereo separation is so perfect I feel like I was among the audience. No surface noise to kill the illusion.
                    The band is like right in front of me. Band space is perfect separation and massive. For a repress that’s suppose to be from the 1994 DGC, I believe it’s the real deal. Get this pressing while it’s affordable!

                      Excellent repress of the 2009 reissue cut by BG. The SQ is clear, vibrant and super quiet without any surface noise. High quality pressing by Pallas too. A great one to have if you can't find this reissue:
