In Utero 20th Anniversary reissue

By Nirvana

For the 20th anniversary of the release of 'In Utero', Nirvana's third and unfortunately last studio album, is being reissued in style. The 3 CD, 1 DVD super deluxe edition is packed to the brim with extras, from the original album remastered, plus a newly mixed version of it, and over 40 tracks of rehearsals, live songs, demos, B-sides and even a newly found instrumental track, never heard before.

For the hardcore Nirvana fan you may have already fought and found the tracks that are included, like The Beavis and Butthead experience's 'I Hate Myself And Want To Die', Steve Albini's versions of 'Heart Shaped Box and 'All Apologies', Scott Litt's mixes of these songs also, plus his remix of the single version of 'Pennyroyal Tea' (All tracks remastered at Abbey Road Studios for this release to top it off).

The Word Of Mouth demos (from 1992's jam session in Seattle) of 'Tourettes', 'Pennyroyal Tea' and 'Radio Friendly Unit Shifter' are also in there. The majority if the albums tracks are on here in demo mode, including Dave Grohl's 1990 recording of 'Marigold'.

Not to end there, the performance that was broadcast on MTV as 'Live and Loud', Nirvana's 13th December 1993 gig at Pier 48 in Seattle is also all included, fully remastered. The live DVD is included, plus over ten more performances from the 'Live and Loud' rehearsals, the 'In Utero' European tour and even the 'Heart-Shaped Box' music video directors cut.

And the icing on the cake, the artwork includes liner notes from comedian Bobcat Goldwait, who was on the In Utero tour, Kurt Cobain's handwritten lyrics, a four-page letter from Steve Albini to the band laying out his recording ideas, and many photographs of the band.

The reissue will be available in a huge and tempting 3CD/1DVD super deluxe set, a 3LP vinyl edition and of course digitally. It is available Monday September 23rd.
