    You want soul?

    Zane Lowe just played a demo version of Lithium from the box set. It's Kurt playing an acoustic on his own. It sounded raw and like a direct line to Kurt's brain. He sounds like he's in pain when he delivers the yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaahhh in the chorus. You have to hear it.

    Never really been a fan of demo versions of songs but this is amazing. :thumbsup:

    I'm looking forward to this, but how much money will Courtney Love be getting out of this. Quite a bit I would guess. That's one thing which is giving me second thoughts about getting it.

    I have it. The packagings great, its a foldout hard back book affair with a picture of the band on a piece of metal (heavy), very slick. It contains the 4 discs and a booklet.

    Ive listened to the first disc, sound quality is from demo recordings and house parties so its not first class production, but its clear, powerful and has a great live feel.

    The music is chronologic order so you can hear their sound developing and its now very clear that Chris adds a lot to the overall sound due to his melodic bass work. Infact its obvious that this is very much a Lennon and Mcartney deal and works really well. The Drummers come and go with the rapidity of a Spinal Tap video, the original drummer just isnt right, Chad Channing does a good job so does Dan Peters, but Dale Crover is just too powerful and heavy and you can hear the Melvins influences at work, but it all comes together with DG.

    From listening to some of the demo work its also clear that they had ideas in other directions, so that Nirvana sound could have moved into all sorts of territories. Events conspired to end their musical output, but it would seem that they had the ability to go a lot further.
