Bleach: Deluxe Edition

Its been 20 years since Nirvana released their debut album “Bleach”?Sursly? 20 years! Am I that old and I just didn’t get the memo? Either way, “Bleach” was/is so damn good and a defining album for the grunge era. One of the first bands/albums to really mix things up for me on the jr. high wrestling tourney bus circuit, flannel on, walkman cranked to 11. Nothing says grunge quite like a singlet and the runs. While my awkwardly pissed off 13 year old self wasn’t quite so hip to “Bleach” until Nirvana’s sophmore effort “Nevermind” blew up in ’91, this album is a staple that has made the transition in my music collection from cassette to cd to digital and now hopefully vinyl…the circle is complete. Raw, emotional and “about a girl”, may be one of my favorite Nirvana songs ever.

On November 3, Sub Pop will re-issue the Platinum Certified Bleach album in an expanded  CD/double-LP with a never-before-released live performance, special packaging and the first run of the double-LP will be on….wait for it…. 180g white vinyl. Total boners.

Heres what Sub Pop has to say:
“This edition will include an unreleased live recording of a complete February 9th, 1990 show at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland, Oregon. The show features performances of “Love Buzz,” “About a Girl” and a cover of The Vaselines’ song “Molly’s Lips” and has been re-mixed from the original tapes by Endino (complete track listing below). A 52-page CD /16-page LP booklet which includes candid photos of the band not previously released to the public will also be included in this deluxe edition.”

Both formats will be available for pre-order at leading up to this edition’s release.
