NIRVANA - Nevermind Sessions

I guess I should introduce myself...my name is Fred (quite obviously), and I'm somewhat new in the music blog game (in the uploading side of it, at least). My first foray into it was through the blog for my College Radio Show, MINDGRINDER. I started off slow, uploading an album here or there, usually stuff that we played on the air, or albums that we talked about, and eventually we started uploading albums in our free time. This just gave us an even broader outlet to share our favorite albums with people all over the world. One band that I've pretty much left out of this though, has been NIRVANA. This hasn't been for any particular reason--it's just that the show got pretty over-saturated with it at some point and I decided to take a break. I do have a large treasure trove of bootlegs and live recordings I've collected over the past few years, and I figured that [shiny grey monotone] might be the perfect outlet for me to upload a lot of this stuff.

I'm going to start with one of my favorite bootlegs--the Nevermind Sessions. These were recorded in 1990, back when Chad Channing was still in the band, at Smart Studios in Wisconsin with Jack Endino. The tracks recorded were originally supposed to be on their next Sub Pop release (to be titled either "Sheep" or "Cookie" or something....), but instead were used merely as documentation for when they re-recorded later on with Dave Grohl and Butch Vig. Awesome look at an album in it's infancy.

Fuck, that is incredible!

This year i have found the Albini mix of In Utero, Unreleased Tracks, Hormoaning and now this! I am a huge Nirvana fan, actually Nirvana was the first thing i listened to, so this is a gift here. Keep it up. The blog becomes more than great!

A year has passed and the link is still dead. Can we get an idea of when a re-up will be done, if at all?
