Nirvana’s Live At The Paramount Will Be Released On Vinyl
Following its 2011 release on DVD and Blu-ray celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nevermind, Nirvana’s Live At The Paramount will soon be available on vinyl.
According to The PRP, Live At The Paramount will be coming out on April 5 as a double LP set, and is set to include a 12×24″ poster insert, as well as a cloth sticky VIP pass replica of the original pass that was used on the night as the download card. Pretty ace, huh?
If you haven’t seen the footage before, Live At The Paramount was the only Nirvana show ever to be shot on 16mm film, and was recorded at the Paramount Theatre (obviously) in Seattle on October 31, 1991. It looks a little something like this…
The DVD/Blu-ray artwork looks like this:
Also arriving this April is a new book on Nirvana, Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain.
The tome was written by the band’s co-manager from 1990 to 1994, Danny Goldberg, and will reportedly chronicle everything from the beginning of their partnership alongside colleague John Silva, to the day Kurt died on April 5, 1994.
Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain will reportedly not only include Danny’s personal memories, but it will also feature interviews with Courtney Love, Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic and other family and friends.
Originally announcing the project in August last year, Danny told The Bookseller: “I began to work with Kurt the year before Nevermind was recorded and remained close to him until days before his death. Media depictions of Kurt typically focus on the tragedy of his death. While it is impossible to ignore the inner demons which tormented him, in researching and writing Serving the Servant I have been more often reminded of Kurt’s brilliance, his sense of humour and his kindness to most of those around him. He was so complex that no two people experienced the same person, but I hope I am able to add another dimension to Kurt’s legacy.”
Anna Valentine of publisher Trapeze adds: “Many books have been written about Kurt Cobain, but Danny’s has the all important ingredient of authenticity. He was there at the beginning and the end, knew the key players and has memos and letters from that time in addition to his own rich recollections. It is refreshing to read a portrait of Kurt Cobain that focuses not on his torment and anguish, but on his character and drive, his talent and incredible legacy. It’s the book all Nirvana fans have been waiting for.”
