Bleach (Deluxe Edition)
Sub Pop 834
Released on November 3, 2009
Marking the 20th Anniversary of Nirvana’s debut album, Sub Pop
will re-issue the Platinum Certified Bleach on November 3, 2009.
This expanded CD/double-LP will include a never-before-released
live performance, special packaging and the first run of the
double-LP will be on 180g white vinyl (the first run of the original LP
was also on white vinyl).
Originally recorded over three sessions with producer Jack Endino
at Seattle’s Reciprocal Recording Studios in December 1988 and
January 1989, Bleach was released in June of ‘89 and remains
unequivocally/unsurprisingly Sub Pop’s very favorite Nirvana
full-length. This 20th Anniversary Edition has been
re-mastered from the original tapes at Sterling Sound in a session
overseen by producer Jack Endino.
This edition will include an unreleased live recording of a complete
February 9th, 1990 show at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland,
Oregon. The show features performances of “Love Buzz,” “About a
Girl” and a cover of The Vaselines’ song “Molly’s Lips” and has been
re-mixed from the original tapes by Endino (complete track listing
below). A 48-page CD /16-page LP booklet which includes candid
photos of the band not previously released to the public will also be
included in this deluxe edition.
