We passed upon the stair
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone
A long long time ago
Oh no, not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world
I laughed and shook his hand
And made my way back home
I searched for form and land
For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazeless stare
We walked a million hills
I must have died alone
A long, long time ago
Who knows?
Not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world
Who knows?
Not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world
Songwriters: David Bowie

A folk live for a grunge band
By Jack Anderson on May 12, 2018

This live album does not represent Nirvana at all, and yet, I love it deeply. It is definitely ironic to think that the most known albums from Nirvana are the ones that are far from the core of the band (this one, or Nevermind). Hence, if you want to listen to the true Nirvana live, you must get your hands on From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah.

Released less than seven months after the death of Kurt Cobain, MTV Unplugged in New York was taken from the eponym performance, taped on November 18, 1993.

The album is a delight to listen. It is not grunge, for sure, but it provides a completely different performance from the group. A much more subtle and calm performance. And while it is possible to hide behind the screams and the heavy sounds from hard rock and grunge music, it is far more difficult to perform in a delicate way like they did here. Every single detail can be listened and for the first time we get to appreciate the light music from the band as well as the calm voice from their leader Kurt Cobain. I even remember that Kurt Cobain was extremely frighten of performing in this format.
