Nirvana Unplugged in New York

Nirvana Unplugged in New York
That it has taken this long for one of Nirvana’s most infamous live performances to find its way to DVD is a surprise, but the quality here makes it well worth the wait. Offering both the edited MTV version of the band’s 1993 performance, along with an unedited version (the first to be released outside of bootlegging circles), this landmark for both the band and the Unplugged series is made all the more poignant by the fact that Cobain was dead a mere five months later. The unedited version offers a stark, endearing portrait of the band as they field audience requests for "Jeremy” and jam out "Sweet Home Alabama.” For the ultimate in harrowing performance moments, watch Cobain’s eyes during the band’s closing cover of Leadbelly’s "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” (Universal)
