28) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Nirvana-'Live at Reading 1992'
This MMR was picked by Orly. We are playing it in honor of the Reading Festival taking place next weekend in Reading, England. Nirvana had already played the 1991 Reading Festival in a middle slot, but the following year, they would return and headline the whole festival. This is the recording from the 1992 apperance that was finally released to the world in 2009 as a CD/DVD pack. (So there is footage for you to see as well.) Someday I'll see a great band performing at Reading or Glastonbury. Until then, I'm so glad there are high quality documentations of these wonderful shows of the past.
