This bootleg was my first bootleg.It has it's ups and downs but for the most part it's really good. After the first few songs, the sound quality deteriorates a bit. There's more "hiss" in the background and the band is playing a little sloppily. On the upside there's an early version of "Rape Me" with a guitar solo in it. I'd recommend it for a serious fan. And for the not so serious fan there are better ones. Rating=***1/2
Trick or Treat
Recorded live at the Paramount Theater, Seattle, Washington, USA. October 31st, 1991.
This bootleg is awesome! Its sound quality is great, it could be something that Geffen would release. It was recorded on Halloween of 1991 and Dave makes a note of that when he says to the audience "Like only two percent of you people are in costumes, personally I think it's very lame...unless you're all supposed to be punk rockers."Also, when it comes to the songs, they play a great electric distorted version of "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam". It also includes a guitar solo. As for the rest of the songs, they're played very well and sound excellent. You'll also enjoy the little things in between the songs that the guys say to each other and the audience. I highly recommend this bootleg to everyone. It's for the serious fan and the not-so serious fan. Rating=****1/2
Recorded Live in Rome, Italy at Palaghiaccio, February 22nd, 1994.
This bootleg is also excellent! As I've said before, Geffen could release this recording officially and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. The band plays excellent with Pat Smear on rhythmn guitar. They play songs from Nevermind and In Utero mostly and "The Man Who Sold The World" is taken from the MTV Unplugged in New York recording. I really liked the way "Come As You Are" and "Serve the Servants" sounded on this one. They're played almost perfectly and having Pat Smear as rhythmn guitarist really worked out well. Dave's drum solo as the finale is pretty good and you'll enjoy Krist yelling at the security guards trying to speak Italian. This was probably one of Nirvana's last best shows. Only two months after this recording Kurt Cobain would be found dead in his home. I very highly recommend this bootleg. You'll get songs from Nirvana's best two albums. This album I recommend for everyone. Rating:*****
This album is a studio album. Some of the songs on it weren't released officially released.
This bootleg is also another great one. A few of these songs you could fine on Incesticide and on singles but other than that it's great. Sound quality is excellent and once again, this could be a bootleg that DGC could release and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. "Verse Chorus Verse" is an excellent song and "Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flowing Through The Strip" gave me a laugh. I highly recommend this one to anyone. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.

Playing at the Moon
Recorded live at the Moon Restaurant, New Haven, Connecticut, September 26th, 1991.I think this bootleg was alright. Its sound quality is fair and the band is playing sloppily. You could find better versions of the songs from this bootleg on other bootlegs. But if you are a hardcore Nirvana fan, this bootleg is just part of the collection. For everyone else, don't expect Geffen quality stuff. I enjoyed it, but I'd still rather listen to Trick or Treat or Coma.Rating=***
