This box set just blew me away. There is so much great material on here I'd had no clue existed, despite having been a regular consumer in the early '90s bootleg markets. It was originally intended for 2001 release, but became wrapped up in a legal standoff. Once the Nirvana collection came out, it resolved the core dispute, and the box set got the green light. It's awesome. No vinyl for this one, though I'm certain a marketing genius will determine at some point that they could release a remastered 5 LP version, and we'll all eat it up. There were actually remarkably few variants: U.S., Europe, and Japan. The discs were also released individually in Ukraine, but I've lumped them together here into one entry. I think these were legit, but I'm not 100% sure. All versions have decreased in price over time - they are all quite affordable now.
