* The original never-before-heard Steve Albini mixes of “Heart-Shaped Box” and “All Apologies”
* The recently unearthed NIRVANA instrumental “Forgotten Tune”
* The original Dave Grohl solo demo of “Marigold” from December of 1990 — the earliest Grohl composition/recording ever released.
* A four-page letter from Albini to the band outlining his plans for how the album should be recorded.
* Liner notes by Bobcat Goldthwait
* A remixed and newly mastered CD of the entire December 13, 1993 “Live And Loud” show at Seattle’s Pier 48 featuring the final touring lineup of Cobain, Novoselic, Grohl, and Pat Smear
* The complete “Live And Loud” show along with several never-before-released bonus performances, that will also be released separately as a standalone DVD and digital download on September 24.
Various other versions, including a "Super Deluxe" edition, are outlined in this article: http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/nirvanas-in-utero-album-is-getting-a-swanky-20th-anniversary-rerelease/
For Nirvana über-nerds only.

Actually, I'm looking forward to hearing a new mix though, as the old one had a few problems.

"The original never-before-heard Steve Albini mixes of “Heart-Shaped Box” and “All Apologies”"
ive heard them WEIRD
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
Yeah, I was just about to write how many versions there is around. Thought that stuff is pretty well known.
Digging: AVEPEZ - Microlugar
HOLY FUCK. Their performance on Live and Loud destroys. So fucking excited for this. But how much is this?
Digging: Death - Human
doesn't dave have enough money?
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
"HOLY FUCK. Their performance on Live and Loud destroys."
Yes indeed. Especially Drain You. It just sounds too stellar.
"doesn't dave have enough money?"
I thought Cobain's daughter was in charge of this shit now?
I'd rather have more of the money put in Dave or Chris' pocket rather than Courtney...if that's what's happening I don't care if they have too much money
swee can't wait to not buy this
"I thought Cobain's daughter was in charge of this shit now?"
no clue. she's alright looking.
kurt was sxc
wish they'd just release Albini's mix of the whole thing
They've got to milk it for as long as possible. Albini's mix will be released in twenty years
"Newly revealed documents from the Fix.com show that Frances, not her mother, Courtney Love, now controls the publicity rights to the name and image of her late father, Kurt Cobain. According to the Fix.com, until her mother pays back a loan for $2.75 million which Love borrowed from her daughter's trust fund, Courtney has no rights or say over the use of Kurt Cobain's name or image"
Now sure how relevant this is to releasing Nirvana works but it's something
New mix will probably be loud as fuck

I wonder how long people will try to get as much money out of Hendrix and Nirvana as possible...
my friends band recorded at a studio where a guy had a flyer of
one of nirvana's first shows and the cover charge was only four
bucks. pretty crazy.
Marigold is an incredible song.
"wish they'd just release Albini's mix of the whole thing"
Aside from Heart-Shaped Box and All Apologies the original record was all Albini mixes. To be honest it's easy to see why they handed those tracks to Scott Litt, Albini's mixes sound lifeless in comparison. His low vocals/no overdubs policy really doesn't work for them.
BEST DAY EVER
Digging: HORSE the band - Desperate Living
I'm guessing the Marigold demo is from the thought to be lost Late! tape?
Nope, this version even predates that. It was featured on the Heart-Shaped Box single.
£90 well spent! :D
Sorry, I'm actually wrong there. The version on Heart-Shaped Box had Krist on bass and was recorded in 1993, apparently.
You might be right, Philip.
Well, £68 haha.
My maths is abominable.
Yeah Pocketwatch was recorded late 1990-early 1991 so it might well be. Well it most probably is.
I need to brush up on my Grohl knowledge ;-]
Does anyone know what happened to the original mixes that were meant to be game changing but the label turned them down? Would love to hear those versions, I half expected them to come with this release, disappointed since I already have most of the other stuff.
By original mixes you mean the Albini mixes? As far as I know this whole thing is kind of a hoax. The label turned the Albini mixes down an said they needed new mastering. Since only All Apologies and Heart Shaped Box got new mastering, the original album features the original Albini mixes, except of these two songs. And those are now features in the Albini versions on the reissue. So the complete Albini produced album should now be complete.
But this news article says "* A new 2013 mix of the entire album"
A new mix of this album doesn't interest me in the slightest. It sounds fine as it is to me, I would have just been interested in this supposed original mix that was drastically changed before the release to be a bit more 'mainstream' friendly. But I guess it doesn't exist
No, it doesn't.
I'm spent enough money on this band
I have all their songs and I don't care for anything else
Who cares? Let other people enjoy the fact that the best album ever made is getting PIMPED UP.
and you're getting PIMPED
I know you're passionate, Leb, but it's not even in the top 50 albums ever made!
Opinions Buttery, I've pre-ordered it anyway so 24th September is gonna be best day ever.
Oh, for sure. I'm glad you're excited bro (no sarcasm). Enjoy it.
Im gonna cry anyway haha.
I look at reissuing cherished albums like remaking cherished movies
just leave it the fuck alone before you end up ruining it
Actually andcas you don't have Forgotten Tune yet.
Already on pre-order.
Digging: Psyclon Nine - [Order of the Shadow: Act I]
