For many In Utero is their favourite Nirvana LP where the band carved out their most unique collection of songs and felt like they were developing into something truly special outside the hype and platitudes of press and mass appeal. Indeed their reaction to that and everything else that was happening in Cobain’s world ran deeply through the record.
Universal Music Enterprises will commemorate the 20th anniversary of n Utero with a multi-format release that spreads more than 70 remastered, remixed, rare, unreleased and live recordings over configurations ranging from a 3-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album. Material exclusive to the various versions of the In Utero 20th Anniversary reissue will include a veritable treasure trove of never-before-heard demos, B-sides, compilation tracks, and live material featuring the final touring lineup of Cobain, Novoselic, Grohl, and Pat Smear…including the long-awaited release of the complete “Live and Loud” show from Seattle’s Pier 48 on December 13, 1993. Additionally, a standalone single-disc DVD of the complete “Live And Loud” show along with several never-before-released bonus performances will also be released on September 24.
