Old Vine In New Bottles

Bildergebnis für nirvana unplugged

Back in 1994 Nirvana released their MTV-unplugged session. In this session they played a lot of less known songs and also cover versions of songs by The Vaselines, Meat Puppets, David Bowie and Leadbelly in their very own and unique way. Shortly after this session Kurt Cobain commited suicide blowing his head away with a gun. I loved this record when it came out because it showed Nirvana in a totally different way. Playing songs with big emotions in a very relaxed way. Cobain probably played these song with depressions in the back and he picked the right songs for this event. Played by great musicians and sung by Cobain with his fragile but also enthusiasm voice. This was the record a lot of people could agree with 20 years ago.

The most un-Nirvana sounding album, yet it's often considered their finest hour. Its poignancy is not to be understated.

The only Nirvana album I still listen to these days.
