MTV Unplugged in New York is a live album by American rock band Nirvana, released on November 1, 1994, by DGC Records. It features an acoustic performance recorded at Sony Music Studios in New York City on November 18, 1993, for the television series MTV Unplugged. The show was directed by Beth McCarthy and aired on the cable television network MTV on December 16, 1993. In a break with MTV Unplugged tradition, Nirvana played mainly lesser-known material and covers of songs by the Vaselines, David Bowie, Lead Belly and Meat Puppets. Unlike prior MTV Unplugged performances, which were entirely acoustic, Nirvana used electric amplification and guitar effects during the set. They were joined by rhythm guitarist Pat Smear and cellist Lori Goldston, plus members of Meat Puppets for some songs. MTV Unplugged was released after plans to release the performance as part of a live double-album compilation titled Verse Chorus Verse, were abandoned. It was the first Nirvana release after the death of singer Kurt Cobain seven months prior. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and was certified eight-times multiplatinum by the RIAA in 2020. It won the Best Alternative Music Performance at the 1996 Grammy Awards, Nirvana's only Grammy Award win, and has since been ranked one of the greatest live albums of all time. The performance was released as a DVD in 2007.Wikipedia
Nothing like a 5-star record on a Saturday! I love this album so much, and I don't think there is a better album that represents Nirvana's talent more that this set. Beyond cool renditions of their own stuff, which was pretty new at the time, they did an amazing cover of Bowie's The Man Who Sold The World. From beginning to end, they have never sounded better and the gritty Where Did You Sleep Last Night is Cool Whip on top for me. Where would listening to this album be the best?....IN THE PINES, IN THE PINES!
A bunch of album tracks and half a dozen cover versions doesn't necessarily sound like the recipe for a killer acoustic live album but 'Unplugged In New York' turns out to be something special. The bands material translates wonderfully well into intimate, acoustic arrangements, and their cover versions are often better than the originals. A tantalizing look at what Nirvana might've evolved into, and still a fitting if sad way for the band to go out despite the large shadow Kurt Cobain's death casts over this record.
There are a few of the Unplugged series that will go down in music history. This is one of them. Who would have guessed that these Nirvana songs and covers would translate so well into acoustic gems to make an amazing album. Performances are top-notch and memorable, and you only want to revisit this concert again and again.
Amazing album, lots of great covers. Originals are spot on. Kurt messes up a few times but the band is pretty spot on. Something magical about this performance maybe it's nostalgia.
Really cool to have a live album that became so ubiquitous and got serious airplay! I feel if you mention 'unplugged', you're talking about this album...or have to seriously clarify. Love that Nirvana pushed against the hitfactory MTV wanted and was able to make something unique and profound. I'd probably give this a 4 if it was only the music, as some of the tracks aren't my favorite, but the covers, story, guests (this is what intro'd me to the Meat Puppets, rad!) and legacy gotta bump it up to a five for me!
When I was at school if you liked guitar music you were either into Britpop, Grunge, or Metal. The kids of Wyvern weren't having people crossing over and liking different Genres. I had quite a happy childhood so I joined the former bandwagon. Now as a miserable 30 something I can appreciate Nirvana a lot more. I still have no time for metal though. Stripped back these songs actually sound better which is a testamant to the song writing on show. What you are hearing here is a superstar at the absolute peak of his powers. One of, if not the best live album ever made featuring the greatest cover version of all time in Man who sold the world. 5/5
This is an easy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me. A concert that will still be talked long after we are gone (although I’d argue Alice in Chains unplugged is a better set for the unplugged format) it cruises to a five on the strength of the covers alone - Lake of Fire but especially Where did you sleep last night which just gave me goosebumps for the trillionth time this morning 😍
As probably predicted this is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me.

I never could understand all the hype about Nirvana and Cobain, but since the band and this album are so highly rated on 1,001 I figured it deserved a good listen. Well, I still don’t get all the hype. I also think you need to be a fan to like hearing them do stripped down versions of their hits because I think the studio versions are better. The best song on this album IMO is The Man Who Sold The World, and that’s Bowie song, so take that for what is worth.
No thank you
I hate Nirvana. I will not listen to this album. Fuck Kurt Cobain.
Pretty Frickin great. I like the little Meatpuppets suite at the end. This album really demonstrates the strength of Kurt Cobain's songwriting I think.
Just a classic. Interesting this threw up one I've played a thousand times for my first one, but glad it did! Graham
I like this album. The live aspect wasn't too intrusive. Contained some of Nirvanas best hits.
One of their best performances; the last track is haunting.
You know what, I thought this would be good, but it was better.
Excellent album. Great to hear a different side of the band and a very upfront and real portrayal of unique covers.
Where did you sleep last night completely blew me away. A truly powerful performance
One of the best MTV Unpluggeds ever. Nice memories from back in the day. Plus, for some reason 1001 Albums Generator threw me two Nirvana albums in a row, which is never a bad thing.
Wow what a great performance. I’m not the biggest Nirvana fan in the world, but this feels like such a slice of time. And the unplugged venue really showcases Cobain’s vocal strengths. This is probably the second best version of Man Who Sold the World. But it’s close.
This album can’t be denied. It makes me ask, was Nirvana potentially a better acoustic band? Is this their most iconic album? Was this the catalyst for Indy Rock? It’s close, but I think Nevermind is still the most iconic and evidence that their just as good as rockers. This album is so good though, so many perfect covers chosen from an eclectic swath of artists. Also had great renditions of original songs. Kurt’s scratchy voice, the acoustic guitars with electric pickups, the cello, the pump organ, the acoustic bass, the banter and KURTS SWEATER, maybe it’s because I’ve listened to it so many times, but it just feels nearly perfect, especially considering I generally hate live albums and would always prefer an album recorded on the studio. A+
I heard this before In Utero or Bleach so these versions are still somehow more familiar to me. Weird. The thing that makes this album great is that they very easily could've just gone out their and played their biggest hits acoustically and called it a day. But they really only played one hit song and really focused on curating a performance that worked best for that setting and created a certain mood.
Loving this. Some covers. Some nirvana. All great. Last track "Where did you sleep last night" was Kurt Cobain's last recorded song before his suicide.
The gold standard for live acoustic albums and probably my favorite Nirvana album. The cover of ‘Lake of Fire’ is awesome. RIP Kurt.
Heard it a million times and it's pretty good... but I gotta say AIC and PJ did the unplugged albums better. 10 points to Cobain for making the setlist mostly deep cuts though. and the bowie cover is really goodl. 4/5.
This album is the embodiment of why I'll never pick live music over "produced". Yes, it is clear that there's a huge amount of talent there, but you know what? Producers are talented too, and they make music sound better. I don't need or want to hear people whooping appreciatively and cheering - I can enjoy the music without a live studio audience yo let me know what I should think about it. Let's hear it for studio producers. The most underrated people in music.
Plateau is weird.
Jesus don’t want me for a sunbeam
Just a perfect listening experience.
One of my favorite all-time albums. LOVE the Bowie cover and the Meat Puppets inclusion. Gold standard acoustic transformation
Awesome live performance.
One of the best live albums. Really shows the versatility of the band
At the top of their game
I watched this to get the full experience and it was perfect
Is this the best acoustic set ever played?
One of the best live, acoustic albums of all time.
Nirvana is always gonna be top for Me. Interesting takes on the unplugged version of songs
I really like this album
classic - duh
Man, nostalgia for this one. High school all over
Great set from them. Gave some of the songs even more feeling
I dig the acoustics and grohl in a sweet sweet turtleneck
An absolute classic from my youth. Raw, emotional.
The good stuff
I love this
Great memories!! Best unplugged ever?
Amazing album with my favorite covers
Not much to say. Its a cultural touch stone.
Jut a series of really great tunes
Loved this! Classic live album
Great album, superb arrangements and so evocative of the time.
An old fav, big feels. The sound for this show is so good.
If I could have 6 stars I'd give them to this album
The final track is worth the top mark on its own, it's stunning. This album reignited my appreciation for Nirvana when it waned a little following my Nevermind obsession period. The Unplugged sessions were such a great idea and produced some amazing musical moments. This is always a great listen, it can't really be faulted.
Great and well known songs by Nirvana, even I have some weak spot in my heart for them.
What can I say? I start to play guitar with this album. I love it
Stunning. They are absolutely wonderful here. The song choices are perfect, the Meat Puppets are a great addition to this and Where Did You Sleep Last Night? is incredible. If I could have been at one show, this would have been it.
Big love for this album forevs
You dont have a friend in me
Best Track: Where Did You Sleep Last Night
Still great, the meat puppets colabs are the stand out tunes. Listened while playing with Gabe, he liked Plateau because of the funny words and the way ‘the man’ said birrrrrds! Can’t argue, an iconic live tv event, strong cardigan game. Special shout out to All Apologies...Mary, ya ya ya yayayyaaaa
Obviously an album I still listen to regularly after almost 30 years
Excellent album, which had recorded in live MTV event.
What can I say, I loved this album, I want to play it again & again. I tried not to love it, because its Nirvana and everybody loves Nirvana, but it was great and No Apologise's makes this album a 5 star.
best album i´ve heard so far in this app. A classic.
Ho consumato questo album fino ai miei 17/18 anni tanto che ricordo a memoria i cazzeggi di Grohl alla batteria tra un pezzo e l'altro come se fossero parte delle canzoni, così come dove Kurt prende fiato all'interno dei pezzi. Risentirlo mi ha riportato indietro ai pomeriggi passati a cantare Where Did You Sleep Last Night o a studiare l'assolo di Lake Of Fire dei Meat Puppets. Questo album per me è l'apice della carriera dei Nirvana ed è stato bello riuscire a capire che dicono tra un pezzo e l'altro dopo tutti questi anni o a vedere la performance su YouTube visto che all'epoca o c'avevi la cassetta o non c'era modo di vederlo. Pensavo che oggi m'avrebbe fatto un effetto diverso, ma quando Kurt apre a Where Did You Sleep Last Night m'è venuta la pelle d'oca come quando c'avevo 16 anni. 5 facilissimo.
What an amazing album. Grew up with it and love it but I appreciate it even more now. Kurt's voice sounds great when it's exposed in this "acoustic" setting. So much raw emotion there. Great songs.
Just straight up dope.
One of the best albums of all time
Really good. Never been much in to Nirvana but I like the stripped down versions.
Damn good album. def heard it before but still really good. kinda falls off halfway through though
Great live album
Best unplugged album ever.
From my favorite band of all time, this record is amazing!
One of the best live albums of all time.
Il mio problema coi Nirvana è che li ho sempre associati ai svariati compagni delle superiori che andavano in giro con sigaretta, camicia di flanella, capelli lunghi, puzza di sudore e depressione: mi stavano sul cazzo. Per fortuna li ho scoperti molto dopo, quasi per caso. In quest'album, quelle sonorità graffianti tipiche del loro sound sono ridotte perché suonano in acustico, ma la loro anima rimane intatta, di espone e si illumina. Grazie per questa esperienza e questa atmosfera. Sono contento di averlo riascoltato! Il mio voto è 5, ma meriterebbe un 6 per la performance live (ho un debole per gli album live). Voto: 6
5/5 - legend
Recorded less than five months before Kurt Cobain’s death from suicide by gunshot, “MTV Unplugged in New York” by Nirvana now plays as a haunting epitaph for the musician as well as a glimpse into where the band could’ve been headed musically had he not ended his life so young. I’ll keep my remarks short as I’m sure plenty has been written already about this record, but in retrospect it’s fascinating to reflect on how big Nirvana were that they could skirt MTV’s requirements for the program - rather than being entirely acoustic, they got to use electric amplification and guitar effects, and instead of performing their hits, Nirvana played nearly as many covers (six, “The Man Who Sold the World” and “Lake of Fire” are two standouts) as originals (eight), and “Come As You Are” was the only hit they performed (“All Apologies” hadn’t yet been released as a single). It’s worth noting that the entire performance can be viewed on YouTube - worth checking out for both the hilarious early 90’s fashion on display in the audience, and to see the set decorated, in Cobain’s words, “Like a funeral” with stargazer lilies, black candles and a crystal chandelier.
Love it! Takes me back to Uni days and seeing them live.
An amazing album. I forgot how good it was!
I came as I am
Amazing live album. Up there with "Frampton Comes Alive".
i’ve always loved these renditions of all the songs… 10/10
My favourite nirvana album
Classic. I dig it.
incredible album and a truly a standout from Nirvana and this genre at large.
The one live album on the top 15, the performance we saw again and again for months (and then years and decades) after that fateful April day back in 94, the one from which the most iconic pictures of Cobain are from (google his name and see for yourself), the sui generis MTV unplugged full of covers as they decided it would be a disservice to play an acoustic version of their hits and by doing so making it the greatest of all, the one MTV entrance of this list I might say! the icon, the moment in history, the otherwise impossible tribute/eclipse of Bowie, Lead Belly’s come back from the dead. All that and so much more… as an album it should be disqualified from the list but of course no one should die without listening. I was 7 the first time I SAW this and still give me the chills, I loved it before I ever understood English, I was of course one of the ignorant kids Bowie would later dismiss for not knowing the author of TMWSTW, actually the first song I ever downloaded from Napster I shit you not! After that I have had the opportunity to compare that hyper compressed mp3 file that took ages to download to the tv version and later to the vinyl and lossless versions… damn the mixing is amazing! I would pay to see a restored version of the concert with the album mixed audio. I nag all the time about the US-centrism of this list and how it is full of live albums but how can this one not be a 5?
Best live album of all time no contest.
100/5. Just perfect. The originals, the covers, the conversations in between and the set. Everything fell into place that night. The covers had me chasing the originals and the deep cuts made me listen and explore more of Nirvana. What are they tuning a harp?
Killer live album Man who sold the world Nothing on top but a bucket and mop Meat puppets song
I never really listened to Nirvana, but this was real nice. Guitar is creative and kinda new. But, Kurt’s voice is another instrument and was the blood in the veins! Loved it!
Wonderful album. Showcases Cobain’s ability as a performer to enrapture a room as well as Grohl’s versatility as a drummer
Bomba. Uno dei miei preferiti
Just an amazing album
This is a perfect concert and to me, the BEST Nirvana album. It spans their entire skillset, shows their versatility, and cements them as one of the best bands of all time.
This was one of my all time favorite albums before 1001 suggested it and it still is one of my all time favorite albums
It's a bit good. For many the GOAT when it comes to live albums. Defo a contender! I mean it created a £250,000 cardigan FFS.
An excellent live album. There are so many highlights on this album but their cover of Where Did You Sleep Last Night? remains an all time favorite
Raw and beautiful. Just how SHACK likes to eat his meat.
You can hear in his voice that he's considering shooting himself in the head. It's fucking great really. Not the shooting bit, the music.
We had this record on at our Christmas party in Downing Street last year. It made none of us pause for reflection as we snorted coke off eachother's erect cocks. Top night.
this is the most dave grohl that i've put up with for a long time. he used to be such a nice boy. for some reason i've never listened to this album before. what a pleasant surprise. live albums are usually a bit shit, probably because a lot of the time its the band being their most polished and showy which is probably why this sounds so good, its not that.
Absolutely brilliant in every way shape an form. In fact it was so good he knew the only way to top it was by topping himself. What a lad
Favorite album of mine.
95. MTV Unplugged In New York - Nirvana 14 tracks. Not a massive Nirvana fan but there is no doubting how good this is. I think the reason I don't listen to them more is that it's what I call "down" music and I just prefer "up" music. The question is... is it a 4 or a 5? 5/5
This live performance is a combination of multiple Nirvana albums, which dabbles primarily in grunge and alternative rock. Nirvana as a band can be thought of as a paradigm shift in their space, with this album's stripped-down arrangements of their music display best their ups and downs as a grunge outfit. There is a profound sense of vulnerability throughout the entire record, from the live hall ambience to the unplugged musical approach - all to the morose qualities of the late Kurt Cobain's life.
One of the best
The last great hurrah for Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. A unique selection of songs for this unplugged show helps it stand out, making for a fun listen even on revisits. Favorites: "The Man Who Sold The World", "Lake Of Fire", "Where Did You Sleep Last Night"
Timeless and fantastic
What happened to MTV
Fantastic. Favourite ever live album
- Very interesting to listen to as I know about Nirvana but had only heard Come as you are before -Full of great songs both musically and performance wise - you can really hear the emotion Kurt puts into singing each one -Like the banter between the band between songs Overall one of my favourite live albums. Will definitely be listening again / adding many songs to my chill playlist 9/10
I’ve heard many great things about this album and they all stood by their word. Very good!
5, I mean come on. There haven't been many other bands that can take music that's pretty heavy and loud, turning it into a beautiful acoustic set. Perfect flow with a couple excellent cover choices throughout. Flawless.
Albums like this make me question "what makes an album?". Technically, this is a bunch of cover songs (including their own), acoustic, recorded live. I keep coming back to the conclusion of, do I think this is something that music fans should be aware of, and listen to at least once. Yes, absolutely. Or could that be my Gen X nostalgia? Probably, time will tell. "The Man Who Sold The World" - arguably better than Bowie's version?
No comment required
Pure class, demonstrating Cobain’s skill, and an album I could leave on repeat for quite a while. The cover versions are a joy
This is probably my favourite live album by any act. There's a lovely relaxed vibe throughout, I almost feel like the band are playing in my living room! In the video the flowers are a neat touch (makes me think of the sixties). On the recording Cobain is in good voice, charismatic and in good humour throughout. It's obviously Nirvana is his band. There's a great selection of originals and covers. There's some fabulous arrangements and instrumentation (the accordion on Jesus Doesn't Want Me and Cello on lots of tracks). It's hard to pick stand out tracks as they're all great, but I love the Meat Puppets tracks and All Apologies followed by a rousing finale of Where Did You Sleep Last Night is a cracking end to the album. It genuinely saddens me that months later Cobain was dead.
Great album with interesting versions of their songs
90's classic (Só cuidado pra não entrar em depressão)
Not usually a fan of live albums, but this one is essential. Its acoustic nature strips Kurt of his electrified anger and softens Nirvana's rough edges, revealing something more tender. The covers, in particular "Man Who Saved the World," fit in perfectly too.
I just love this album. So raw, honest and evocative of its time.
This is a great album. Every song is interesting and well-executed. I'd dock it a couple of points because the songs are all fairly depressing and a little bit repetitive. So 5 stars if you listen to it spaced out over time but 4 stars if you have to listen to it all at once.
Nirvana are all at the top of their game here, and in a genre that they're not too familiar with; acoustic rock. The covers are great, the originals are great, don't see any flaws with this record.
excellent. I like the songs off the beaten path. Will listen again.
Been a big Nirvana fan since I was 14 and there greatest hits album came out in 2002. Love this album it was always getting 5 stars, the version of All Apologies is brilliant and so are the covers, In my opinion the man who sold the world is better than the original.
The sheer force of personality and charm of Nirvana made this really enjoyable, and I can't get enough of "Come as You Are" live! It sounds amazing, and their covers are really solid too (I love a Bowie cover!)
4.8 - just an amazing album. Such a mixture of nostalgia for me and amazing music. What it would give to have been at this concert.
Loved everything about this album still
Excellent, what a thing that happened, wonderful stuff.
Fantastisch integer album met een ruw kantje
Disco mítico del grunge, punto final a una era de músicos rockeros que sabían y saben tocar. ► Me encantan sus canciones en acústico: "Come as You Are", "Pennyroyal Tea", "Dumb","Polly", "On a Plain" y "All Apologies". ► Y las versiones que hicieron de otros grupos: "Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam" (The Vaselines), "The Man Who Sold the World" (David Bowie),"Lake of Fire" (Meat Puppets) y "Where Did You Sleep Last Night". ♫♫♫♫♫ Disco de 5 estrellas imprescindible.
i honestly can't say anything that hasn't been said before. this is incredible.
A bit slow in the middle but still awesome. 9/10
9/10. I am usually pretty lukewarm on Nirvana, but this was excellent
9/10 iconic for a reason!
I assumed this would be an easy 5. I love Nevermind but don’t think I’ve ever listened to this album all the way through, I came out a little underwhelmed. It is brilliant, I enjoyed it, great tracks, awesome delivery but I just can’t escape the feeling that I’d rather hear them rocking the fuck out than sat down strumming out a folky one. Maybe I’m holding this album to too high a standard, because I’m mostly comparing it to one of the best albums of all time, rather than judging it purely on its own merits. So 9/10 I guess, still 5 stars but not a Nevermind 5 starts.
Actually really enjoyed this -- in the past I've tried to give Nirvana a go and was kinda luke-warm. But this album is killer and its funny to hear a bit of his personality.
Simply sublime. Probably my favourite Nirvana set.
Last song is 🔥
The further from the 90s we get, the more I appreciate Nirvana
Might be the best live performance ever captured. Favorite tracks: Plateau, Something in the Way, Lake of Fire, and all of them.
What a great collection of songs, didn't realize how many of the "definitive" versions of these songs in my mind came from this performance.
Uno de los mejores conciertos de la historia. Estremecedora la voz de Kurt
That album made me
Starting off with something familiar. This album is already on my personal top 10 so its a great way to start off.
all time great
Love it. Eerie/spooky vibes from the set, and a ton of *great* songs. I'm always really impressed whenever live albums sound good, and this one sounds as good or better than the recorded versions. I'm also impressed by their ability to take songs from other artists and really make them their own. Highlights include the man who sold the world, something in the way (ty batman), plateau, lake of fire, come as you are, and where did you sleep last night. The only real lowlight for me was pennyroyal tea, but overall this album is fantastic and several songs are already in my rotation or will be after this.
listened late but sooo good
What a treat. Excellent
Dynamite. Crisp, clear. Enjoyable straight through.
As a rule I hate live albums. Nirvana is the exception, always the exception. This is an emotionally charged, raw set. It’s moving and spellbinding. Kurt has gravitas. The covers are all impeccable too! They fit so well with Nirvana’s own material. It all blends together so seamlessly. So many things going right, it’s just so so good. It hits differently than all other live albums. Bottled lightening. Zap!
Where Did You Sleep Last Night and Come As You Are had me in shambles
An album that I'm already very familiar with. It's a tough act making a hard rock sound acoustic friendly for Unplugged. There's a real sense of the band being hopelessly under-rehearsed. This is good. They make it up as they go along with some wonderful results. Kurt has an almost apologetic persona. The Bowie cover works a charm. Shout out to Dave Grohl with his brush drumming light touch work. This helps the whole album to hang together.
Geen woorden voor. Allesbepalend geweest voor wie ik nu ben als muzikant.
Hier is alles ooit al eens over gezegd natuurlijk...
Always a pleasure
Awesome album, watching this on tv was what first inspired me to start listening to grunge
Amazing experience, loved every second of it
A classic, but overplayed. The David Bowie cover is my favorite.
Just soo damn good
Probably the best live album, with maybe some exception for Johnny Cash, but really something special, so intimate.
An enthralling live performance, and the deep tracks and covers really help make it a unique experience. Something about stripping it all down like this really lays bare Cobain's emotions and songwriting. It is clear why this album is so highly regarded.
One of my favorites!
I actually watched this set on Youtube about a week before this app suggested the album. Despite a very casual vibe to the band's banter and a few remarks from Cobain on whether he will mess up certain songs, it's a remarkably tight set. The acoustic (or near-acoustic) format, while far from the grunge sound of the original recordings, still retains the angst, rage, and introspective qualities. Cameos by the Meat Puppets and support from The Germs's Pat Smear, and a few covers, notably David Bowie and the powerful Leadbelly closer, make it far more than a greatest hits collection.
My favorite live album. One of the best.
What should have been a cheesy event somehow turned into a raw and emotional string of performances that immortalized Nirvana. The covers here prove to be just as timeless as the original music from Nirvana. Kurt's influences and own mind laid bare--along with his heart.
Truly an eerie and haunting media-shifting moment
I have this on vinyl-I’ve seen it so many times- I still love it.
I remember this all so clearly. I watched it in full the first time MTV aired it, and saw it in bits and pieces many times since then. I bought the album when it was released and listened to it quite often. In this performance, I hear hints and shadows from where I believe many others also feel Kurt Cobain might've gone musically and artistically had he lived and gotten clean. I honestly believe he is on the same generationally-rare songwriting plane as, say, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and others of that ilk. I can't tell if this is my mind's shaping of the memory or if it truly happened this way, but my memory of the experience of watching this for the first time is that I was mesmerized by it all, fascinated at times, totally engaged with it and that I also couldn't shake a feeling of sadness. No, I'm not at all claiming I had a sense of Kurt Cobain's impending death or anything like that. It was just how I experienced the entire thing.
Solid, it doesn't get much better than this.
Listened Before? Y This is an amazing classic. Nirvana was a great band, and this is their best, least chaotic, and most well-arranged performance IMO. The cameos from the Meat Puppets and the songs they covered are a major highlight. Added to Library? Y Songs added to playlist: The Man Who Sold the World, Plateu
Set the standard against which all unplugged albums are measured
