Product Description

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.

I bought this in addition to the super deluxe box set because I wanted the show on blu-ray and not just standard DVD. I had read about the sync issues on the BD (after purchasing but before playing it), but was hoping it was just minor and that people were over-reacting. Not the case. It is HORRIBLE to watch! You hear Dave hit the snare almost a full second before seeing it. It's just inexcusable. And no, it isn't my player or receiver. I have watched countless other blu-rays on the same equipment and not a single one of them had audio/video sync issues. I tried watching the BD in every sound/visual combination possible. They were all the same; just bad. I couldn't even finish it. I put in the DVD that came with the super deluxe edition just out of curiosity. Sure enough, there are no sync issues at all on the DVD. The audio and video are in perfect time.

I'm with others that hope that there is a recall and reissue of this. I was really looking forward to this on BD and now it's just going to collect dust, unless Best Buy will let me return it. I would gladly buy a replacement if they fix the issue and reissue this.

10/31/91 was such a vital piece of musical expression! The band wrapped up their US nevermind tour with a stunning home-coming set at the paramount theatre. The band is firing on all cylinders, the sound in the venue is great, and the atmosphere/audience is energetic. In addition, the video transfer is breathtaking and the audio mix is solid. Sounds like an A+, right? welp, the audio and video are OUT OF SYNC with one another. The DVD is in sync, but the blu ray is out of sync! completely inexcusable! The blu ray should be re-called/re-released because this is an otherwise stellar product.

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).

I've been waiting for years for Geffen to release this, and I'm thankful they finally did. The video and sound blows the footage from LIVE TONIGHT! SOLD OUT! out of the water, and it's been remastered to HD. You get two viewing options: Original Full Frame, or Anamorphic Widescreen. That's great. What I am disappointed in is that the DVD has extra's, the Blu-Ray does not. With the DVD you get the four music videos from Nevermind (Smells Like Teen Spirit, Come As You Are, Lithium, and In Bloom). The Blu-Ray does NOT have these videos. That's a shame. Usually you get more features from the blu-ray. I'm not sure if this was an error or if this was intentional on Geffen's part. I bought the Super Deluxe Edition and the Blu-Ray since the Deluxe set only contains a DVD of the show. Just thought you'd like to know.

Don't let the Director/Producer/Manufacturer reviews fool you into thinking that the BD doesn't have sound syncing issues. This isn't a simple customer correctible firmware fix and more than likely your equipment is NOT at fault. You can prove it for yourself by simply putting on two or three familiar concert BD and comparing the results. If your other concerts don't have syncing issues, ...guess what?

I have literally hundreds of video concerts on DVD and BD. None of my other BD concerts display synch problems. Why should this one?

The manufacturer says update your firmware, check the settings and empty the cache.

Folks, this isn't a cache problem, it's a CASH problem, and those who already have yours aren't likely to part with any of it in order to recall discs with an authoring problem. So, it's YOUR fault and will continue to be YOUR fault because after you've paid for the product it's easier for the Director/Producer/Manufacturer to blame "faulty" customers than to step-up and fix the problem.

My suggestion: if you want to see this concert without the syncing issues (and it is a good concert which makes this all the more frustrating), you're probably better off buying the DVD, ...and be sure to get the word out on this BD.

After being out of stock for over a month, it came back in stock. Assuming this was a re-release with the audio issues fixed I ordered it.

Nope, same thing. Will be sending back. The fact they are actually still shipping these to stores with this obvious defect is insane.
