Up for auction is the very rare and out of print Nirvana bootleg CD box set A Season In Hell Part One. This box set was manufactured in Italy and released by Banzai in 1994. It is housed in a matte finish, square box that also includes a 7"x7" 24-page booklet with photographs and information on the recordings. The 3 CDs are a 66-track collection comprised of 2 concerts from 1990, several demos, rare live material, b-sides and compilation tracks. It is one of only 2 bootlegs to feature the Off Ramp Cafe performance and the only bootleg to feature the Town Pump show. A portion of this box set would later be officially released on With the Lights Out.
The condition of the box set is very good. I am the original owner and purchased this in the mid-90's. The CDs are all in excellent condition with no scratches and are in their original cases with original CD inserts. The booklet is also in excellent condition with no rips, tears or bends. The box does show some slight wear, which I have shown in the photos provided. There are no rips or writing, etc. on the boxes. The most serious of the blemishes seems to be where a price tag used to be. I am more than happy to provide additional pictures at your request.
