Something On the Way

Nirvana “Bleach” 20th Anniversary Reissue on the Way from Sub Pop

In the, "in case you didn’t feel old this morning department…" Nirvana’s debut album Bleach is being reissued by Sub Pop in a 20th anniversary deluxe edition. The expanded CD and double LP - on white vinyl (the first run of Bleach was also on white vinyl as well) includes a never-before-released live performance from 1990 at Portland's Pine Street Theatre. A comprehensive booklet will also be included: 48 pages on CD and 16 on LP, featuring many previously unseen photographs.

The 20th anniversary edition is due November 3rd. Jack Endino, the album's original producer, oversaw the remastering process which was done from the original tapes. Curiously, those original recording sessions were said to have been completed for a cost of $606.00. The album initially sold 40,000 copies, but was brought into the international spotlight following the release and worldwide success of Nirvana's 1991 sophomore effort, Nevermind. Subsequently Bleach went on to sell 1.7 million copies in the US alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan numbers.

The Stone Roses s/t is having a 20th anniversary reissue as well. In case merely feeling old wasn't quite demoralizing enough.

20 years! I can't believe it's been that long. It brings back some good memories. Didn't you used to have dark hair back then?

Awesome. I think this is the only Nirvana album I never bothered getting, so maybe now is the time.
