Nirvana 1991-11-19 Roma, Il Castello [FM master, 2011 rebroadcast]


recorded at Il Castello, Roma (Italy)
on tuesday 19 November 1991

about a thousand a different versions are available for this set, but most if not all are sourced from the same RAI broadcast by "Planet Rock" from 20 years ago. In occasion of the recent new remixed or whatever double disc version of Nevermind, italian radio decided to rebroadcast that gig. This "new" source, if not better than the others, might at least be useful for a matrixing project. See Live Nirvana's Bootography Guide To Nirvana Bootlegs for more information on commercial releases of this show. WARNING: in italian radio customes the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. And I mean a lot.. His/Her purpose is to introduce songs with bits of bio and translate what the artists say, or to describe to radio listeners what's happening on stage. It may gets VERY annoying, and trust me it does, thus we might consider this recording ONLY FOR COMPLETISTS. But the songs, the actual music, are (usually) not spoken over in the middle of them. It has to be noted that italian djs are on the whole adviced to talk that much by the same record companies to prevent bootlegging. But this is anyhow one of less spoken over broadcast in years...
