About this item
Geffen/UMe release Nirvana’s LIVE AT THE PARAMOUNT on vinyl for the first time ever. This will also be the first time as a stand-alone audio release outside of its inclusion as bonus material on the NEVERMIND 20th Super Deluxe Edition.
Includes a 12×24” poster insert and a sticky cloth VIP pass replica of the original pass used that very night of the concert as the vinyl download card insert. The download instructions will be on the paper backing, not on the pass itself.
Live At The Paramount was the only Nirvana show ever to be shot on 16mm film, and was recorded at the Paramount Theatre (obviously) in Seattle on October 31, 1991.
“Fresh off the release of what was soon becoming the seminal album of a generation, Nirvana took to the stage of Seattle’s famed Paramount Theatre to an unwavering homecoming crowd while on the road in support of Nevermind. Launching the nineteen song set with a brilliant cover of the Vaselines “Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For A Sunbeam,” the band cranks out their soon-to-be iconic songs “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Lithium” and “Breed,” while delivering earlier fan favorites “School,” “Love Buzz” and “About A Girl.”
Barry says: 'Live At The Paramount' shows a band at the absolute peak of their powers, perfectly smashing out a run of absolute classics with pitch-perfect efficiency and the incendiary snarl we've come to expect. You already know Nirvana, you already know what they sound like, and this is a PERFECT example of their sheer power and reason for their lasting relevance.
