Deluxe and super-deluxe editions of NIRVANA’s 1991 classic ‘Nevermind’ will be released on September 26 in commemoration of the album’s 20th anniversary.
With configurations ranging from a 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album, the reissue of ‘Nevermind’ will contain previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings, including a 1991 Halloween concert at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre in its entirety.
The Super Deluxe version also features the first full official release of the pre-Nevermind demos recorded at producer Butch Vig’s Smart Studios, as well as boombox recordings of subsequent rehearsals which document the evolution of tracks such as ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, ‘Come As You Are’ and ‘On A Plain’.
This version also offers a new perspective on Nevermind in the form of the Devonshire Mixes: the album as produced and mixed by Vig as opposed to the commercially released final version produced by Vig and mixed by Andy Wallace.
Originally released in September 1991 ‘Nevermind’ had reached No. 1 on music charts worldwide by the end of that year and sold over 30 million copies.
