A couple of years back Nirvana’s debut album, ‘Bleach’, got a much deserved 20th Anniversary re-issue, but it was nothing like what’s planned for ‘Nevermind”s commemorative edition, coming September 26 2011. It makes complete sense, of course – ‘Bleach’ was the band’s cult hit; ‘Nevermind’ knocked Michael Jackson off the Billboard Chart’s number 1 spot.

A couple of years back Nirvana’s debut album, ‘Bleach’, got a much deserved 20th Anniversary re-issue, but it was nothing like what’s planned for ‘Nevermind”s commemorative edition, coming September 26 2011. It makes complete sense, of course – ‘Bleach’ was the band’s cult hit; ‘Nevermind’ knocked Michael Jackson off the Billboard Chart’s number 1 spot.

As well as a remastered version of the original record being re-pressed on vinyl, a 2-CD set will be made available that includes BBC live session recordings and rehearsal tapes.
