1991 live concert from the legendary rock band Nirvana. Nirvana shot to stardom in the early 1990s with the release of their seminal album 'Nevermind'. Hailing from a small town outside Seattle and led by the talented but fragile Kurt Cobain, the album was a surprise success and spawned numerous offshoots and a whole new movement known as 'grunge'. The band were never entirely comfortable with this label or their mainstream success in general and disbanded in 1994 after Cobain's suicide. This release captures them at their peak, playing a hometown show at Seattle's Paramount Theatre on the back of the 'Nevermind' tour.

UPDATE: The above review was for the same product listed on this page (nirvana 10/31/91 blu ray), but the copy I initially purchased was from best buy (this blu ray was a best buy exclusive and was released by B.B. months ago). I returned the blu ray to best buy because it was defective (A/V played out of sync on a litany of different systems...including every blu ray/tv set up inside of the best buy store). Point is, contrary to the garbage stated by the manufacturer about this disc being perfectly fine, ITS NOT. PERIOD. I just received my copy from amazon today (1/12/12). I was hoping that the manufacturers had quietly corrected the glaring audio/video sync issues on the latest batch of blu rays that went out to amazon and other retailers etc. THEY DID NOT. Bottom line: the performance contained within this blu ray is amazing! the audio mix and the video transfer are both fantastic! However, the fact that the audio and video are unacceptably out of sync with one another makes this blu ray unwatchable. Of note: it appears all dvd copies of the show are correctly produced/sync'd and all blu ray copies of the show are defective (out of sync). DO NOT PURCHASE THIS BLU RAY UNTIL THE MANUFACTURERS CORRECT THEIR MISTAKE AND RE-ISSUE THIS RELEASE! amazon should send their copies back to whoever it was that pawned off defective merchendise onto them (UMG? Geffen?). 2 stars for the amazing musical performance. 0 stars for the defective blu ray and the deceptive lies told by the manufacturer.
Quote from UMG/geffen etc:
"Please note that great care was given to ensure a quality Blu-Ray disc was created. Audio/video synchronization playback issues have not been replicated at the manufacturer or releasing company testing facilities on multiple players."
PLEASE!.... then those involved in this process are either remarkably stupid or liars (or both).
If you simply must own this show, hold off on the blu-ray and buy the dvd (until the manufacturers correct the blu ray release).
