Nirvana: Live at the Paramount Blu-ray

Posted September 20, 2011 08:43 AM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray MoviesIn an early retail announcement, Geffen Records has indicated plans to bring Nirvana: Live at the Paramount to Blu-ray. The only known full-length Nirvana concert shot on film, Live at the Paramount finds the band showcasing their now-classic Nevermind album with such songs as:
  • "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam"
  • "Aneurysm"
  • "Drain You"
  • "School"
  • "Floyd the Barber"
  • "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
  • "About A Girl"
  • "Polly"
  • "Breed"
  • "Silver"
  • "Love Buzz"
  • "Lithium"
  • "Been A Son"
  • "Negative Creep"
  • "On A Plain"
  • "Blew"
  • "Rape Me"
  • "Territorial Pissings"
  • "Endless, Nameless"
Timed to coincide with Nevermind's 20th Anniversary, the hour-long concert has been remixed and restored for the Blu-ray edition from its original 16mm film elements, with both 5.1 and 2.0 LPCM audio tracks.

Famed documentarian and music video director Lance Bangs (Tell Them Anything You Want: A Portrait of Maurice Sendak) has been personally involved in the restoration and was one of the chief architects of the Live at the Paramount editing process; in a statement released by Bangs on September 17th, he "spent much of 2011 working on making a coherent concert film out of the material." The result is, according to Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, "a pretty good representation of [the] band" in their heyday.

Nirvana: Live at the Paramount will premiere on VHI Classic this Friday, September 23rd at at 11:00 PM EST/PST. The Blu-ray is then expected to street as a Best Buy-exclusive on September 27th and then expand its release schedule on December 27th.

Best Buy Exclusive? It is on Amazon for 21.99 right now. And yes, I hate BB also especially their damn exclusives.

EDIT: Okay I saw now first 3 months at BB, yes that does suck. Oh well, will be worth the wait!

Buy used instead of going to a Best Buy? Just walk in, grab it, swipe your credit card and leave. What's the problem?

I hate BP Amaco, Exon mobil, J.P. Morgan Chase, and other assorted "Evil" corporations but, Best Buy wouldn't even make my top 100. I will be enjoying this on release day assuming that my Best Buy has it on Blu Ray. Alot of the time they will only have the DVD for the first couple weeks then the Blu will show up on the shelves but, this is a highly anticipated release that's tied in to the Nevermind anniversary so I'm remaining optimistic. I'm even blasting this on Halloween for the 20th anniversary!
