It was quite the moment when the hitherto loud and raucous Nirvana calmed down enough to perform an acoustic set for MTVs Unplugged series. The performance was a revelation, taking in highlights from their back catalogue plus covers of David Bowie and Meat Puppets. It was a crying shame that we never got to see how the band would progress but at least we were left with this superb document.

No Nirvana collection is complete without this historical live recording session. Recorded only a few months before Kurt Cobain's tragic death, Nirvana were an unlikely candidate for an unplugged concert. Hits like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "In Bloom" and "Lithium" were what the group were renowned for; this performance showed the world that they have a softer side and there is more beauty and emotion in their music than appears. Cobain also pulls out some impressive covers throughout by Meat Puppets, David Bowie and Lead Belly.
