Wonderful rarities collection from the BRITISH Nirvana
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Contrary to what the other "reviewer" wrote, this is a collection of previously unreleased tracks by the British Nirvana, with their cover of the Seattle Nirvana's "Lithium" thrown in for fun. Some of these tracks have benefitted from 90's "remxing" and the difference between these and the original demo-ish 60's material is somewhat obvious. Worth it for "Do You Dream" alone, but patchy in parts."
Spare parts do not a theme make.......

"Folks familiar with the two or three fairly well known Nirvana UK releases will probably be surprised to see so much available from the band in CD form. After "Simon Simopath" and "All of Us," I see they had considerably more output than I knew about. "To Markos III" (see the listing for that CD) received only a very limited release, since the label Metromedia went out of business just as it was headed to US shelves. "Orange and Blue" is a collection of out-takes from the bands' early period. The presentation is uneven, some of the songs are demo-quality, some are well produced. As stated in the liner notes, this material did not see the light of day at the time because it conceptually did not fit their predominate musical style. These songs are a little weightier than their toytown baroque modus, although not extremely so. The interesting thing is this: you will hear music akin to Erasure and Lightning Seeds. I doubt those bands derived their styles from listening to this material, but the accidental parallel is interesting."
This is good

"The British Nirvana were about to sue Kurt Cobain's Nirvana because of the group's name (yes, the British Nirvana came first, face it, if you don't believe it, inform yourself before saying the opposite, Cobain said so, not me), but they got to an agreement and the British Nirvana decided to cover "Lithium" just to prove that everything was ok between the 2 bands. If you like grunge, don't buy it. If you like good oldie style music, I definitively recommend you this album."
