Nirvana’s label Universal has revealed more details of their 20th anniversary reissue of Nevermind, and the multi-format set is stacked with B-sides, alternate mixes, live recordings, and studio rarities. It will be released on September 27.
The limited-edition Super Deluxe Edition will include Nevermind demos that were recorded with producer Butch Vig at Smart Studios in Madison, WI, plus “boombox” recordings of tracks like “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Comes as You Are,” and “On a Plain.” The original version of Nevermind was mixed by Andy Wallace, but the reissue will also house the Devonshire Mixes – the album as mixed and produced by Vig. Other highlights include BBC radio recordings, and a live DVD of the Kurt Cobain and Co.’s 1991 Halloween show at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle.
In addition to the 4-CD/1-DVD box and single-CD edition, a 2-CD Deluxe Edition will be available (featuring the remastered album, B-sides, Smart Studio sessions, boombox rehearsals, and BBC sessions), as well as a 4-LP 180-gram heavyweight vinyl version. The 1991 Halloween show will also be issued on DVD and Blu-ray.
