Many bootlegs go through several iterations throughout their existence. Titles change, cover art changes, vinyl color changes and “labels” releasing them change. This is one of those bootlegs. Initially it was released titled as Live At The Pier 48 Seattle 1993, and was later released by a different “label” under a new name; Drain You Live At The Pier 48, Seattle December 13th, 1993 – Westwood One FM (abbv. to Drain You from here on for simplification). This later pressing is featured here.

Both pressing were released in 2015, with the earlier Live At The Pier 48 Seattle 1993 released by DOL and the later pressing Drain You Live At The Pier 48, Seattle December 13th, 1993 – Westwood One FM released by Radio Silence. Both pressings have the same exact track listing, with the songs taken from a soundboard recording from the show mentioned in the title. The artwork is different between the two pressing. You can see the Drain You cover art below. The cover art for the earlier Live At The Pier 48 Seattle 1993 pressing has a photo of Kurt Cobain performing live, playing his guitar. This pressing also has a black hype sticker on the cover indicating “heavyweight 180 gram vinyl.” Both pressing were pressed on black vinyl, but only the earlier pressing is on 180 gram vinyl.

As with most bootlegs, pressing info is a bit sketchy. It was never released for the earlier Live At The Pier 48 Seattle 1993 pressing and the later Drain You pressing is apparently limited to 500 copies. You have to take that number with a grain of salt though, as bootlegs are far from an exemplary, honorable business.

Here is the track listing, which again, is the same between the two pressing:

A1 Radio Friendly Unit Shifter
A2 Drain You
A3 Breed
A4 Serve The Servants
A5 Rape Me
B1 Heart-Shaped Box
B2 Pennyroyal Tea
B3 Scentless Apprentice
B4 Lithium
B5 Guitar Demolition
