Description by OLDIES.com:

Few would have predicted that, in 1991, Nirvana would be No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard album chart. Not only did "Nevermind" replace Michael Jackson at the top, but it succeeded in doing what the Punk Rock movement had failed to achieve 14 years earlier. "Nevermind" and the songs of Kurt Cobain changed the music business from within - without compromise, record company hype, or media overkill.

This program tells the story behind how Nirvana came to record "Nevermind," the effect the record was to have on the music world and on the band themselves, and why to this day it still remains a milestone in rock history. Through exclusive interviews with the people involved, we trace the history of the band with them first signing to Sub Pop, a Seattle independent record label, before coming to the attention of the major record labels following their first album "Bleach." With a move to Geffen Records and the release of "Nevermind," the stage was set for Nirvana to dominate the music scene and for the single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to become an anthem for the world's disenfranchised youth.

Bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and Butch Vig, the record's producer, share with us their memories of the sessions and give us an insight into the songwriting genius of Kurt Cobain. Other participants include Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman, Geffen's Gary Gersh and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. It is a true Classic Album.

Product Description:

Nirvana's groundbreaking 1991 album NEVERMIND raised the Seattle trio to the status of Godhead, forever changing the face of the pop music market. "Here we are now, entertain us" may have come and gone as a catch-phrase, but as an insight into a generation's bitterly restless tide, it ranks right up there with "I can't get no satisfaction." Part of the CLASSIC ALBUMS series, this release sheds new light on the production and legacy of NEVERMIND through revealing interviews with industry insiders including BLEACH producer Jack Endino, DGC Records A&R man Gary Gersh, Butch Vig, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, and Jonathan Poneman and Nils Bernstein of Sub Pop Records. With unprecedented openness, remaining band members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl discuss the production of individual songs, and tell amusing anecdotes about the band's financial struggles just before making it big. In addition, NEVERMIND producer Butch Vig invites viewers into his studio, where he dissects and examines each of the album's tracks. By isolating, examining, and reassembling each instrument and vocal track, Vig is able to recreate the manner in which the album was produced.
