(antiMUSIC) Nirvana fans are in for a treat when the box set finally arrives later this month. Dubbed "With the Lights Out", a leaked tracklisting promises 81 songs in all with 68 previously unreleased tracks. The set reportedly kicks off with a recording of Led Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker" from the group's very first gig, a house party in Raymond, Washington in March of 1987 and then goes chronologically giving fans an audio biography of the group's career. 

The box set will feature 4-discs, 3 music cds and one DVD.  Geffen records plans to release the set on November 23rd, in time for the Christmas season. 
Some of the highlights include not only the early recordings but also acoustic and electric versions of "Rape Me" as well as some of the final studio recordings from the band from their  January 1993 Rio de Janeiro sessions and Kurt Cobain's home studio demos. 

According to Billboard, the DVD will include 10 previously unreleased clips, including a cover of "Seasons in the Sun" and "Pennyroyal Tea" as well as "the rare 1990 video for 'In Bloom.'"
