This is a great way to see how Nirvana evolved over the years and a great way to get a best of set. This album contains demos, acoustic versions and raw live versions of pretty much every one of your favorite songs. I'm amazed at just how much stuff is packed into this collection from recordings at Kurt's home to early live shows to versions of the songs that show them as works in progress.
The DVD included in the set is worth the money alone. It has gems like performances in small Seattle coffee shops, a set that looks like it was played in one of the band member's homes and the first time Dave Grohl appeared in a show as the drummer for the band.
Some of the demos are so good that I actually prefer them to the album versions of the songs. The live versions both on the CDs and DVD are a real treat since I never had a chance to see the band live. This set was entirely worth the money and I'm glad I was able to experience it.
