Nirvana – Feels Like The First Time

Posted: June 23, 2015 in Vinyl

In 2014 yet another Nirvana bootleg was pressed, this one being a re-press of the Feels Like The First Time boot that was first released in 2012. Both pressings were released by Let The Eat Vinyl and are a double LP in a gatefold jacket. For the second pressing all records were pressed on 180 gram vinyl, but I’m not sure about the first pressing. The bootleg consists of recordings taken from multiple shows and years, which I will lay out in the track listing at the end of this post.

For this second pressing there are two confirmed colors pressed, and for the first pressing there are a rumored three colors; 500 copies on red, 500 copies on blue and 500 copies on white. For this second pressing there are 1000 copies on blue and 500 copies on white. The white copies are individually numbered xxx/500 with a sticker that is placed on the shrink-wrap facing the front of the jacket. White is the only variant individually numbered.

Typically with boots it’s impossible to get accurate, truthful pressing info as well, they’re bootleg releases. But for this boot the numbers, for the second pressing, are direct from the label, which is as reputable as there is in the bootleg game. Prices on this second pressing range from $25 on up to $35 depending on where you buy it and what color you go for. Oddly the white copies, which are rarer, are the cheaper ones.

Some more info on this boot to help people out. The covers between the two pressings are identical, at first people speculated that they were different. This speculation was due to a picture of the wrong cover being posted on a message board, which then spread across other message boards. Upon receiving my copy from the second pressing I can confirm the cover art is the same as the first pressing.
