    New Nirvana Compilation On The Way

    from www.billboard.com:

    Just in time for the holidays, DGC has set a Nov. 1 release date for a new Nirvana compilation. "Sliver: The Best of the Box" rounds up highlights from the last year's boxed set "With the Lights Out" and will also feature three previously unreleased tracks, details of which have yet to be revealed.

    "With the Lights Out" was a quick hit, debuting at No. 19 on The Billboard 200. It was the biggest sales week for a boxed set since Garth Brooks' "The Limited Series" in 1998 and has shifted 429,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    The box was originally intended for release in Christmas 2001, to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of Nirvana's breakthrough album, "Nevermind." But surviving members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl were thwarted by lawsuits from Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love, who objected to their planned use of the previously "You Know You're Right" in the set.

    The dispute was eventually settled in September 2002, with the parties agreeing to earmark "You Know You're Right" for a self-titled Nirvana compilation released the following month.


    Be interesting to see what songs are on this - don't know how much of With The Lights Out was previously unreleased, but it would suck for Nirvana fans to have bought all the albums and then the box set and then they stick all the unreleased stuff on this new disk. Fortunately I'm not that much of a Nirvana fan!

    Default Track List Set For Nirvana Compilation

    from www.billboard.com:

    By Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

    The track list has been revealed for the upcoming Nirvana compilation first reported here earlier this week. “Sliver: The Best of the Box” will arrive Nov. 1 via Geffen/UME and is led by three previously unreleased tracks: “Spank Thru” from the famed 1985 “Fecal Matter” demo tape, the 1990 studio outtake “Sappy” and a pre-“Nevermind” rehearsal recording of “Come as You Are.”

    The album's other 19 tracks are all drawn from the 2004 boxed set “With the Lights Out,” including a cover of Led Zeppelin's “Heartbreaker” from a 1987 house party, the “Nevermind” outtake “Old Age” and a 1994 Kurt Cobain home demo of “All Apologies.”

    Here is the track list for “Sliver: The Best of the Box”:

    “Spank Thru” (previously unreleased, 1985 “Fecal Matter” demo)
    “Heartbreaker” (live, 1987)
    “Mrs. Butterworth” (undated rehearsal demo)

    “Blandest” (studio recording, 1998)
    “Ain't It a Shame” (studio recording, 1989)
    “Sappy” (previously unreleased)
    “Opinion” (solo acoustic, 1990)
    “Lithium” (solo acoustic, 1990)
    “Sliver” (undated home demo)
    “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (rehearsal recording, 1991)
    “Come As You Are” (previously unreleased rehearsal recording, 1991)
    “Old Age” (“Nevermind” outtake, 1991)
    “Oh the Guilt” (split single w/ Jesus Lizard, 1992)
    “Rape Me” (acoustic home demo, 1992)
    “Rape Me” (studio recording, 1992)
    “Heart Shaped Box” (studio recording, 1993)
    “Do Re Mi” (home demo, 1994)
    “You Know You're Right” (home demo, 1994)
    “All Apologies” (home demo, 1994)


    So there you go, Nirvana fans... Worth it or not?

    Ain't it a shame to go fishin' on a Sunday, ain't it a shame??

    The Lead Belly cover,"Ain't It A Shame," is worth whatevah price this is tolling...fo' sho'...awwww that ol' church bell tonin'...this is a great ol' Lead Belly blues that Ize believes is based on an ol' gospel tune, "Ain't It Grand To Be A Christian." The tune has long thought to be the lost ark of Kurdt Cobain recordings and is said to even cut heads on his version of,"In The Pines," or "Black Girl," by Lead Belly.
    ASHES TO ASHES...DUST TO DUST...IF THE WOMEN DON'T GET YA, THE WHISKEY MUST!!...

    "I used to play the blues alone in all the local joints," he explained. 'The only thing that I can really play on guitar to this day is the blues. I heard Doc Watson and his son playing 15 years ago, and from there I got into Leadbelly and John Lee Hooker."--DLR

    I picked up Silver - Best Of The Box yesterday, it's on sale for $7.99 so I couldn't pass it up. I really like Nirvana but I hadn't gotten the box set. This has to be the first time I've bought a CD by a band I liked, featuring 22 songs, for less than $8 bucks and still feel totally ripped off. What a waste. If this is the "best" of the box then that must be a really piece of shit.

    Courtney Sells Nirvana Rights Share
    Kurt Cobain's widow partners with ex-Virgin Records COO/GM to manage catalog

    When Nirvana singer and lead songwriter Kurt Cobain died in 1994, his widow, rocker Courtney Love, became the primary beneficiary of his estate, which includes more than ninety-eight percent of the band's publishing rights. Band members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl were left with part of the remainder. Now Love tells Rolling Stone that she has finally sold twenty-five percent of her share of Nirvana's sought-after publishing catalog -- to Larry Mestel of Primary Wave Music Publishing, former COO/GM of Virgin Records.

    "I took on a strategic partner, Larry Mestel, to help me co-manage the estate because it was overwhelming," Love explains. "The affairs of Nirvana are so massive and so huge, and they've all fallen on my lap. I own almost all of [the publishing], . . . and it proved to be too much for me. I needed a partner to take Kurt Cobain's songs and bring them into the future and into the next generation. And this guy's the guy to do it."

    Mestel says his three-month-old company, Primary Wave, is thrilled to have bought into an American musical legacy. "The appeal to me is that [Kurt was] one of the most important songwriters of his time," Mestel says. "Kurt was an incredible songwriter, and Courtney is an exceptionally talented person herself. So I felt the combination of Courtney's creativity and the things I can add can really help in creating more value for these copyrights."

    Though Love and Mestel declined to comment on specifics, a source close to the deal tells Rolling Stone that Mestel has likely paid in excess of $50 million for the rights.

    Exactly what the partnership will mean for the life of Nirvana's music -- including the Nineties hits "Come As You Are" and "All Apologies" -- is unclear. Thus far, the tracks have been notably absent from corporate ad campaigns and blockbuster action-movie soundtracks. The new partners are already eager to curb speculation that any of the generation-defining songs might end up in, say, a deodorant ad.

    "We're going to remain very tasteful, and we're going to [retain] the spirit of Nirvana and take Nirvana places it's never been before," says Love. "My goal is to keep the music very true to who the songwriter was and what his passions and tastes would be," Mestel adds, "and to work through Courtney to figure out exactly the best way to go about exposing his music to a new youth culture to a new generation."

    In other news, Love says she has entered into another partnership -- a musical one, with New York-based electronic artist Moby. According to Love, Moby has agreed to co-produce the follow-up to her 2004 effort, America's Sweetheart, which Linda Perry is also at work on. The two met up when Love was in New York last week, and ended up spending a night out with Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and Michael Stipe.

    "A long time ago, Moby was Christian, and I had this fantasy I was Mary Magdalene and he was Jesus. I've always had a little crush on him," says Love. "And I trust him. I'll talk all sort of shit, and he'll keep trying to focus me back on the music."

    Last night I heard a Nirvana song on a classic rock station that rarely plays anything from the 90's.

    I think the unofficial definition of classic rock is anything 15 years old or older. Nevermind, being released in 1991, makes it eligible now. Should be hearing more stuff from For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge now, too!

    You might be right, because I also heard Top Of The World on that same station. Still hard for me to consider Nirvana "classic rock" though.
