Nirvava – Foretaste 7″

Nirvana bootlegs come in all sizes. This one is a 7″ called Foretaste and was pressed on multiple colors. There have likely been multiple pressings of it as well, but since it’s a boot it’s impossible to know for sure. Since it was first released in 1992 it likely went through at least one re-press, as I found this at my local record store in 2015 and have been a loyal customer (I’m in there at least once a month if not more frequently) of theirs for well over 10 years and this is the first time I saw this record in there.

There are three songs on this 7″; “Drain You,” “Dumb” and “Endless Nameless.” “Endless Nameless” is improperly listed on the back of the foldout sleeve as “The End Of Music.” Bootlegs often purposely either misspell or list song under improper names to skirt copyright laws. The songs were recorded live at Maida Vale Studio 5 in London on September 3, 1991.

I know of several colors this bootleg 7″ was pressed on; black, orange and seafoam green/mint/teal/turquoise. All color variants have plain white center labels with a large hole, except the seafoam green/mint/teal/turquoise variant which has a small hole. Sometimes boots have different covers or subtle variations of the cover art, but this boot is not the case as all the covers are identical no matter the pressing/vinyl color. No pressing information in terms of numbers pressed has nor ever will be released.
