Incredible live acoustic performance - the only episode of Unplugged to be filmed in a single take.

While most focus on the band's legendary cover of Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World," there are numerous amazing tracks. My favorites include incredible live-string accompanied arrangements of "Dumb" and "All Apologies" as well as two lesser known covers: "Lake of Fire" and "Where Did You Sleep Last Night."

Kurt has been a huge influence on me as a muscian for a long while .this is one of the best live shows by a band ever done and the versions of the Nirvana songs on Mtv unplugged are better than the orginals from Nevermind and In Utero.Kurt sang in this show instead of screaming which showed his voice more and how wonderful the melodies are without the loud guitars on record. highlights for me are Penny royal tea Come As You Are Dumb Where Did You Sleep Last Night About A Girl Oh Me and On A Plain a sad record and very haunting since we know what happened a few months later.Kurt could of written some more great songs like these but at least we have the music forever!

Although I really liked their album Nevermind, I think this one is their very best. The fragile and delicate nature of Kurt's voice is spotlighted here. His singing was always haunting to me (even while he was alive) but listening to this album now his vulnerability seems all the more apparent.

The rendition of "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" is one of the best live rock recordings. Ever.

Just an overall great performance. The highlights for me were the covers especially the Leadbelly cover. Kurt's voice never sounded so good!
