People have been doing this for centuries with classical music. Beethoven's 5th is supposedly about "fate knocking at your door".

I honestly dont think $142 is that bad...sometimes these special collectors editions of albums go for way more. For instance, I think the highest end version of the Achtung Baby reissues is around $600 and when NIN released Ghosts a few years ago there was a set selling for $300 if I recall.
Plus tallchris is right...Nevermind really is and always will be the MOST important album in my own personal music development. I remember having no idea who Kurt Cobain was or what Teen Spirit was....listening to that album and thinking "man...track 1 is a REALLY REALLY good song" Then I spent the next 3 years from 94-97 collecting/trading Nirvana cassette tapes of live/rare music over the internet since CD-R wasn't really around yet. Good times!
Menik, what do you think of the "rare" materal included on the box set? I guess having high quality of the boom box demos will be pretty cool but none of the stuff is really life-altering. I wonder if that studio version of "talk to me" is really out there. Curious as to what we will ge on the In Utero 20th edition in a few years. And although the 10/31/91 Halloween show has been bootlegged to death it will be nice to have a PRO shot DVD of the entire show...that was a bone crushing performance.

I do admit, I did put in a pre-order for it ha! And I'm really excited for the boombox demos...I've always wanted those (they are one of the few things to have never leaked out on their own - not like other demos and stuff aka the "Rio Demos"), so I'm excited for that. But no mention of the "song in D" (god only knows if that really exists), and there is no mention of the '91 Sappy (no idea why that would not be included - that's another song that has seemingly vanished and never surfaced/leaked), so missing those two things sorta sucks.
And yeah, even though the paramount bootleg has been around for years, to have the complete concert on blu-ray will be pretty fucking sweet, can't wait for that. So all in all, this release isn't THAT bad, just think the price is kinda high, but that's the game with these "super deluxe" crap these days I guess. I hope the book is nice.
And no idea what they'll do the for the 20th anniversary for In Utero...I would assume:
1) Remastered album obviously
2) Steve Albini mix
3) Rio demos?
4) MTV Live and Loud DVD
As far as the studio version of "Talk to Me", who really knows...I'll put that in same category with "Song in D" and the long rumored (and most wanted for me) electric version of "Do Re Mi". Maybe they're just myths?
Yeah, was "Sappy" definitely recorded during the Nevermind sessions? The versions of "Old Age" and "VCV" released on the box set were great and if so that is def a strange omission.
No one seems to know if there is a studio "Talk to Me" but I thought it was confirmed that there is an electric "Do Re Mi" recorded with Pat Smear on guitar and Eric Erlandson on bass in 3/94...obviously would kill to hear that.
But yeah, in the end I'm sure the Nevermind super-deluxe set is going to be totally worth it...cant wait!
Even though the partial Live n Loud PRO has been around for years....if we could get a FULL PRO shot that would be awesome since that is a very strong performance.
Yeah, Sappy was recorded during those sessions (even confirmed in the "Classic Rock Albums: Nevermind" book I just checked)....so why that is missing from this release makes absolute ZERO sense. Seriously, wtf?
Yeah that's a total bummer then. Probably my favorite moments of the box-set was finally hearing the studio "Verse Chorus Verse" and "Old Age" I bet "Sappy" from those sessions would be amazing....oh well. maybe saving for another rarities release in the future.
That Nevermind reissue looks pretty sweet.
Super Deluxe Nevermind is no longer available on Amazon. Wonder if they jumped the boat and listed it too early or if they sold a bunch of pre-orders?
Either way glad I pre-ordered it.
Fuckin Bleach. thats all I have today.

Link for tixGet ready to take a trip to Seattle Nirvana fans; this will surely be a great show.
On September 20 at the Sky Church/Experience Music Project, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic will join a gaggle of Seattle musicians to perform Nirvana's Nevermind in full (for the 20th anniversary in case you didn't know).
The concert will also feature Fastbacks, the Long Winters, Visqueen, Vaporland, Campfire OK, Valis, Ravenna Woods and more. The concert will also serve as a benefit for Seattle music industry biggie, Susie Tennant, who is battling cancer.

I remember my older babysitter/neighbor wearing flannel pajama pants out in public at a bowling alley because of Nirvana/grunge/MTV and little five year old me was like WHAT IS GOING ON?

NEW YORK (AP) — Comedy Central's Jon Stewart will host a Q&A session with the surviving members of rock band Nirvana to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its album "Nevermind."
Stewart will host the event on SiriusXM for two hours on Sept. 24. It will feature fans, Nirvana band members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, and Butch Vig, the producer behind "Nevermind." Kurt Cobain, the band's lead singer, committed suicide in 1994.
"Nevermind" was the band's second album and has sold 10 million units in the United States. It features Nirvana's biggest hit, "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Grohl is now the lead singer of the Foo Fighters.
SiriusXM will also launch the all-Nirvana channel, Nevermind Radio, on Sept. 23 until Sept. 28
