Recording Notes:
All three sets are sourced directly from the master, including the elusive RHCP set which seems like it
has never circulated very much, if at all. Edited to even out some volume adjustments the taper did at
the beginning of the PJ and Nirvana sets, smoothed out where the taper paused after “Dumb” and “Me and My
Friends”, and removed a few pops. There is also an unfixable small cut @ 9:28 of disc 3, track 6.

The total time of the first disc is 80:33. Almost all modern cd burners can overburn to a little over 82 minutes
using capable burning software. Check out the net for specifics on what your particular burner can handle, or
you can of course separate the two sets onto two discs if you have any problems.

This release should not be confused with SV023, called “JAM LIKE HELL”. Basically the differences between that
earlier release and this one is SV023 does not include the RHCP set, and there are more cdr extractions in the
source lineage.

Also very special thanks to Dominick Gruber in Germany who spent a good bit of time helping me identify all
the teases in the RHCP set.

Artwork Notes:
The artwork is designed to fit a 3-cd fat “quad” cd style jewelcase. It could be surely modified to fit two
separate traditional jewelcases if desired.

Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
New Year’s Eve and three great bands! Ed comments, “If I wasn’t in this band, I would still make sure I was here
tonight.” Ed sings part of Fugazi’s ‘Waiting Room’ as an intro to ‘Even Flow.’ A driven performance, with a
particularly intense version of ‘Alive.’ Flea of RHCP assists with vocals during ‘Leash.’ The ‘Teen Spirit’ teaser
(actually the longest teaser I’ve heard) is followed by Stone’s quip, “Just remember, we played it first.” Ed
performs one of his finest stage dives, repeating it later during the ‘Yurtle the Turtle’ encore with the Chili

There’s actually a lot more songs than that, but its a bit of a mess to sort through and I’m too lazy to do it.

I’ve been collecting bootlegs for more than a decade now. When I started we sent cassette tapes through the mail. Eventually we moved up to CDs and then downloading torrents (although I still send CDs through the mail on a regular basis.) It wasn’t until about a year and a half ago that I found MP3 blogs. That was a revelation, let me tell you. Suddenly there was a ton of more music out there that I’d never been able to collect in the old fashioned way, and it was incredibly easy to get.

I have to admit I went a little nuts and started downloading everything. Eventually I realized that I had way more music than I’d ever listen to (ok, really this was true even before I found the blogs, but the massive amount of stuff I had downloaded in a short period of time pushed me overboard.) The question then was, what do I do with all that good music?

Obviously I started my own blog. What I’ve chosen to upload has been a mix of music from my trading days and things I’ve found via other blogs. (A quick way to determine where I’ve gotten a particular show is to note the MP3 quality. Normally anything uploaded at 320kps comes from my collection while lesser quality comes from blogs. Though of course this isn’t a hard law as sometimes I rip at 224kps and of course some blogs use high quality MP3s too.)

I’ve always felt the slightest bit of guilt when I upload shows that I’ve downloaded from other blogs because in a sense I’m essentially stealing their content, but I get over it pretty quick. The truth is those blogs get their music from some other source – be it another blog or a trade or a torrent. Almost none of the blogs come from the original tapers and so we’re all just stealing from each other. I do try and link to blogs I like in my regular postings as a way to give back to all the places that have given me so much music.

One of the problems that has come with so much downloading is that I’ve long since forgotten where I’ve downloaded the music from. Usually the blogs are good at inserting all the needed information into the MP3s, but sometimes the details are a mystery.

Enter Nirvana.

I’m pretty sure I got this set of songs from a random torrent site – probably The Pirate Bay. Periodically I’ll go to one of those sites and just type in various things to see what pops up. Here I probably typed Nirvana, or maybe “bootlegs” or something like that and found this. If the set ever had a proper name I’ve lost it. A lot of the MP3s were not tagged at all and those I mostly deleted. The ones I’ve included here have some kind of tag inside them that should give you some basic information, but none of it is pristine.

The quality is mostly pretty low, so I’d say this is really for pretty hard core fans. If you dig Nirvana and want to hear some rare live stuff, demos and the like this set is for you. However, if you are a more casual fan, I’d just stick to the officially released stuff.
