Nirvana's Nevermind 20th Anniversary 5 Disc Box Set (A Top Story)
On Thursday Nirvana's Nevermind 20th Anniversary 5 Disc Box Set was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) Twenty years after its initial release, Nirvana's Nevermind will be reissued in a massive Super Deluxe Edition. Available September 19 (in the U.K.) and September 20 (North America), the 4-CD/1-DVD set will include previously unreleased recordings, rarities, b-sides, BBC radio appearances, alternative mixes, rare live recordings and an unreleased concert in its entirety on the DVD. Exact details of these extras are yet to be revealed.
Although a slow-seller on release, Nevermind has since sold more than 30 million copies, and the editors, writers and readers at Gibson.com recently voted Nevermind the greatest album of the 1990s. Produced by Butch Vig, it was Nirvana's second studio album and the first by the iconic trio of the late Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and (now Foo Fighters mainman) Dave Grohl.
According to a press release, the 20th anniversary of Nevermind "will be marked throughout the year, with various events and releases." - more on this story
