Today is the 20 year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. A day that resonates with several people for various reasons. His family, his friends, and those who respected his music. To reflect on where he would be in the music world today wouldn’t be a good use of our time. Instead, let’s appreciate what he already gave us. He’s inspired many others so that we can live through his talent in music.
Last year I placed an order from a local record shop for a copy of Nirvana’s Nevermind on vinyl. It took forever.
Finally, months later the owner called. He told my record was in, but it wasn’t was I ordered. I was pissed. He explained to me that they sent something else instead.
As mentioned above I was after the band’s second album that was originally released in 1991. His distributor sent Nevermind, only this one was the 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.
So, not only did I get the original album, but there’s also live tracks, the B-sides, studio sessions, and unreleased material. A great set to have in my vinyl collection.
Until the next word…
