Remember Nirvana? I do! Do you remember what a fantastic live band they were? So do I!! :-) Did you ever get a chance to see them live? Oh, that's too bad. Sorry. :-( If you weren't one of the lucky ones to see Nirvana live as many times as I did, then this DVD is made just for you, and is about as close as you're ever gonna get to seeing just what the big deal about the band playing live was all about! Powerful stuff. Filmed when the band was on the cusp of mega super-stardom, Live At The Paramount shows just what a phenomenal Punk Rock N Roll machine the band truly was in a concert setting, just before the Rock Star excess bloat moved in and ultimately destroyed them all. Booooooo. This gig was recorded just as Smells Like Teen Spirit was rising up the charts, and it perfectly captures the band in all their ragged pre-stardom glory, before Kurt got sick of playing and singing the songs, and before the band started giving a fuck about playing 'the hits'. What you see are 3 friends just playing these songs that they're really proud of, and it's great to see. Great to hear too! The sound on here is AMAZING and the camera work is excellent. The hometown crowd gives them lots of Love, and Nirvana delivers on all fronts. This stuff has been pieced out, for both official video clips and officially released b-sides and live compilations, all throughout Nirvana's career, but this is the first time this concert has been presented in it's entirety. If you're a fan you will LOVE this, and if you're not, you might not like it. You won't get. You won't understand what the big fuss is about Nirvana, and that, in general, is really sad. If you buy this DVD, keep your eyes out for the 3 Easter egg videos hidden deep within this DVD. It's early club footage of the band playing in Vancouver, and it's pretty sick. Available from DGC Records.
