Sub Pop to Reissue Nirvana's Bleach

August 18, 2009  |  3:53pm

There’s no need to keep waiting for the new Nirvana to come and change music forever when the old Nirvana is still kicking up dust. On Nov. 3, Sub Pop will re-introduce Kurt and Co.’s introductory album, Bleach.

Whether you’re one of the 40,000 who picked up Bleach when it originally dropped in 1989 or 1.7 million who got a copy after you heard “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and immediately needed the whole catalog, Bleach: Deluxe Edition comes with plenty of goodies.

The reissue comes complete with an unreleased live recording of early, pre-fame Nirvana from Feb. 9, 1990 in Portland. The show includes classics like “Floyd the Barber” and “Been a Son” as well as sure-to-be-collector’s-gems like “Molly’s Lips,” a cover of The Vaselines.

As is often the case with reissues and repackaged records (Pixies’ Minotaur,anyone?), Bleach will come with a 48-page CD booklet unearthing unseen photos of the band and (likely) an essay about how important the album was.

Pre-orders of the expanded CD or double LP are available via Sub Pop’s website.
