| NIRVANA: LIVE IN BUENOS AIRES 1992 - IMM940414
Nirvana in 1992, at the height of its amazing success, playing for rabidly excited fans at an arena in Buenos Aires.
The setlist is an ideal distillation of pre-“In Utero” Nirvana. It mixes album tracks from “Bleach and “Nevermind” with songs known from live shows and as studio outtakes. Numbers now considered classics – “Breed,” “Drain You,” “Come As You Are,” “Lithium,” “In Bloom,” “On A Plain,” and others – get full-fledged, hard-edged treatment. Kurt Cobain is in powerful voice, characteristically ranging from flat, brooding moodiness to all-out screaming. And the musical interplay among the trio is tight.
Oddball moments include mysterious, fragmentary chatter from the band, some vocal self-parody from Kurt, and a sarcastic “drum solo” from Dave Grohl. An intensely hard-driving show from one of the most fascinating rock bands of all time.
