    In Utero: 20th Anniversary Edition


    20th Anniversary Edition Features The Original Album Brilliantly Remastered At Abbey Road Studios And Pressed On Two 45 RPM 180 Gram Vinyl LPs


    The 180 Gram 33 1/3 RPM LP Includes Previously Unreleased Recordings And Demos, B-sides And Compilation Tracks And Live Material


    Ranked 439/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    A reactionary statement to the phenomenal commercial success of Nevermind, In Utero remains Nirvanas most noisy, caustic, uncompromised, and aggressive album. Its also the bands best, a brilliant combination of contagious hooks, feedback-drenched squalls, bruised beauty, and biting lyrical wit intended to blindside causal listeners with raw emotion, difficult listening, and painful honesty. Rife with medical imagery and references to disease, sickness, decay, and dismay, In Utero is the distraught sound of personal catharsis and unyielding trauma. More revealingly, the record doubles as a haunting foreshadowing of singer Kurt Cobains suicide that took place just months after its release.


    Unhappy with the high-gloss production and pop-based arrangements on Nevermind, Nirvana set out to make a harsher album that would literally alienate millions. While the trio succeeded in its goal of getting intimate with blistering dissonance and acerbic tones, In Utero resonated with the public, debuting at #1 on the Billboard charts and ultimately selling more than four million copies. Echoing John Lennon, Cobains piercing songwriting spoke to the disaffected masses that shared his anguish and set new standards for ironic depth that still stand. For every unsettling screed (Serve the Servants, Milk It, Radio Friendly Unit Shifter, Tourettes) there are introspective moments of folk-inspired elegance (All Apologies, Pennyroyal Tea, Dumb) that hint at the direction in which Nirvana was headed.


    In Utero is equally legendary for the controversies involving its production. Originally helmed by Steve Albini, an engineer known for capturing live ambience and natural tones, the album was eventually remixed by Scott Litt after the group complained about the vocal sound. While the exact specifics of what party demanded the redo remain blurry, the finished results are staggering, with the added harmonies, better bass definition, and vocal volume boosts achieving an ideal balance that satisfied the bands wishes. Now, you can hear it like never before.

    In Utero: 20th Anniversary Edition (2013 Mix)


    45 RPM 180 Gram Vinyl Double Album


    Mastered At Abbey Road Studios


    Direct To Metal Mastering


    Alternate Artwork Exclusive To This Release


    The 20th anniversary of Nirvana's third and ultimately final studio album, In Utero, continues apace, with its 2013 Mix, mastered at Abbey Road Studios,
    issued as a 45 RPM 180 gram vinyl double album--cut to copper plates using the direct to metal mastering process, and housed in stunning alternate
    artwork exclusive to this release.


    The 2013 Mix finds original producer Steve Albini revisiting In Utero with the blessing and oversight of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. With an approach
    described as more of an alternate snapshot of the same entity than a typical remix or new mix, the 2013 Mix coaxes forth never before heard nuances-
    -and including unearthed alternate performances on some tracks--and finds incredible new sonic dimensions of the unwitting swansong of the single most
    influential artist of the 1990s.


    Upon its original 1993 release, In Utero was easily the most polarizing record of a generation. The most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt
    Cobain, Novoselic and Grohl would ever record, it was also the first record Nirvana would make with any expectations from the public. The In Utero 2013
    Mix double vinyl edition offers yet another perspective of the final and perhaps finest hour of Nirvana: of the most incredible yet conflicted rock 'n' roll band
    of the era at the peak of its powers surmounting struggles from within and without to make the record they needed to make.

    Live At Reading

    Ranked #1 in Kerrang magazine's 100 Gigs That Shook The World and voted as Nirvana's #1 Greatest Moment by fans in an NME poll, Nirvana's historic August 30, 1992 headlining appearance at the UK's Reading Festival is one of the most bootlegged concerts in the annals of rock 'n' roll. Now, fans finally can own a pristine copy of that entire performance complete with remastered audio.


    While the show's centerpiece was a performance of nearly the entire Nevermind tracklist, also noteworthy were early performances of three as yet unrecorded songs which wouldn't be released until a year later on In Utero: All Apologies,Dumb, and, in its first ever public performance, Tourette's. The career-spanning set list also reached back to the band's 1989 Sub Pop debut album, Bleach, for Blew,About A Girl, School, Negative Creep, and the band's first single Love Buzz, and even further back for Spank Thru.


    Other songs from the Reading set would appear in studio form on the Incesticide compilation later in the year: Aneurysm, Been A Son and Sliver. Additionally, the band played a pair of beloved covers by two bands that helped shape the formative Nirvana sound: The Money Will Roll Right In by Fang and by The Wipers.
