Nirvana Bootography Review:
This is the kind of disc that makes people collect bootlegs.
The sound quality is not for everyone, but if you appreciate an
incredibly rare and early performance, First Live Show is a "must
have" CDR (with no artwork). At the time of this writing, this is the ONLY
commercially available title with this show. Until the 7th is
confirmed as the day of this performance for the Nirvana Live
Guide, the Nirvana Bootography will continue to list the day of
this show as "??."

The performance that is listed as March 7th, 1987 is
mentioned in the Charles Cross Kurt Cobain biography "Heavier Then
Heaven". Mr. Cross does a good job describing the events before,
during, and after the show and transcribes some of the banter that
can be heard as the band runs through nine of Nirvana's earliest
songs. The show takes place at a house party in Raymond Washington.
Throughout the performance you can hear partygoers and the band
chat back and forth. The band receives little to no applause. They
are surprisingly tight (Aaron Burkhardt is on drums) and it's easy
to tell the band had spent some time rehearsing.

As Mr. Cross notes in the book, it's simply amazing that a
tape like this exists. The sound is as good or better than anyone
could expect. Interestingly, Kris Sproul of the Nirvana Live Guide
was able to confirm that this CDR (with no artwork) was taken from the remaster he
circulated - he made an edit after the soundcheck that is present
in the commercial title. You won't find a document like this for
many bands, this is something very special.
