Nirvana's In Utero reissued to mark 20th anniversary
9/24/2013 4:22:00 PM
Nirvana's In Utero turns 20 today, and the album has been reissued in four different packages to celebrate.
In Utero, Nirvana's final studio album, gave us legendary tracks such as "Heart-Shaped Box," "Dumb," and "Rape Me." The 12 original recordings have been refurbished at Abbey Road Studios, and are available in one-, two- and three-disk packages, and in a three-LP package if you're revving up the record player.
Check out the difference between the original and refurbished recordings of "Dumb" from the rerelease:
To coincide with the rerelease, the guys in Deer Tick performed as Deervana, the band's alter-ego under which they pay tribute to Cobain, Grohl and Novoselic. The quintet (who also released an album today) is known for covering Nirvana songs under the pseudonym, and they brought their act back on Sept. 13 for the first time in two years to cover In Utero in its entirety.
Here's Deervana covering "Heart-Shaped Box":
In addition to the refurbished tracks, In Utero - 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe has more than 70 songs, including unreleased and B-side tracks, and it comes with a DVD of Nirvana's performance at Seattle's Pier 48 on Dec. 13, 1993 for MTV's "Live and Loud" broadcast.
You can stream all three CD versions of In Utero - 20th Anniversary on Spotify and you can buy them on iTunes.
