Nirvana's 'In Utero' gets deluxe reissue treatment

With 1991's Nevermind having sold 30 million copies, Nirvana's third studio album In Utero two years later was the first effort they'd make with any expectations from the public. 

The rawness of producer Steve Albini's recording laid bare every primal nuance of the most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl would ever record.

On Sept. 24, Universal Music Enterprises will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the unwitting swansong of the most influential artist of the 1990s with a multi-format release that spreads more than 70 remastered, remixed, rare, unreleased and live recordings over configurations ranging from a 3-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album.

Material exclusive to the various versions of the In Utero 20th Anniversary reissue will include never-before-heard demos, B-sides, compilation tracks, and live material featuring the final touring lineup of Cobain, Novoselic, Grohl, and guitarist Pat Smear…including the long-awaited release of the complete "Live and Loud" show from Seattle's Pier 48 on 
Dec. 13, 1993.

Additionally, a standalone single-disc DVD of the complete "Live And Loud" show along with several never-before-released bonus performances will also be released the same day.
