Nirvana’s iconic ‘Live at the Paramount’ gig is being released on vinyl

Nirvana’s legendary Live At The Paramount concert is finally getting a release on vinyl.

The 1991 Seattle gig was released on DVD and Blu-ray to coincide with the 20th anniversary celebrations of Nevermind in 2011 – and now, it is set to be released as a double LP set on April 5.

According to reports, bonus features on the vinyl release will include a 12X24″ poster insert and a cloth replica Access All Areas pass of those handed out during the original concert.

A few weeks back, it was announced that a new book on Nirvana, Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain is also set for release in April.

Penned by Nirvana’s one-time co-manager, Danny Goldberg, the book is set to chronicle his personal memories from the beginning of their partnership until frontman Kurt Cobain’s tragic death in 1994.

It will also feature interviews with Courtney Love and Krist Novoselic, as well as anecdotes from other family and friends.

“I began to work with Kurt the year before Nevermind was recorded and remained close to him until days before his death,” said Goldberg in an interview with The Bookseller last year.

“In researching and writing Serving the Servant I have been more often reminded of Kurt’s brilliance, his sense of humour and his kindness to most of those around him.

“He was so completely that no two people experienced the same person, but I hope I am able to add another dimension to Kurt’s legacy.”
