MTV Unplugged in New York - Nirvana

Nirvana's MTV Unplugged was issued after Kurt Cobain's death. It is no exaggeration to say that this performance increased exponentially the celebrity of both the band and the chain, at least outside the English-speaking World. 1994 was the year when a number of countries lifted restrictions on cable TV, of which MTV was the ultimate symbol.

MTV Unplugged in New York is aslo, according to some critics, an indication of what kind of music Kurt Cobain would do in a hypothetical post-Nirvana era. There is some truth to that; after all, we know what Dave Grohl and the other guy have done since.

But this is mainly and simply a good album.
