In the duo amicably separated, with Campbell-Lyons the primary contributor to the next two Nirvana albums, Local Anaesthetic , and Songs of Love And Praise , the latter featuring the return of Sylvia Schuster.
The duo reunited in , touring Europe and releasing a compilation album Black Flower Bam-Caruso, which contained some new material. Black Flower had been the original planned title of their third album. In the s two further albums were released. Secret Theatre compiled rare tracks and demos, while Orange and Blue contained previously unreleased material including a flower-power cover of the song " Lithium " originally recorded by the Seattle grunge band of the same name, Nirvana.
According to the band's official website, this was intended as part of a tongue-in-cheek album called Nirvana Sings Nirvana that was aborted when lead singer Kurt Cobain died. When the recording was presented on the Orange and Blue album, Campbell-Lyons's liner notes treated it seriously and with allusion to Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. Recorded at Nirvana's final studio session and previously only known through one bootlegged live performance and a shaky cover on Hole's MTV Unplugged, "You Know You're Right" was a revelation when it appeared on the band's eponymous best-of: three-and-a-half minutes of bristling aggression and razor-wire hooks that helped breathe life back into Nirvana's reputation and alternative rock in general.
Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York was a high water mark for '90s rock, and every song from their performance is a gem. So why not go with the one where Krist Novoselic plays the accordion? The B-side to "Smells Like Teen Spirit," and so for millions and millions of people it was the second Nirvana song they ever heard. Listen to over 60 million songs with an unlimited streaming plan.

One exception is the West Coast pop-psych sounding 'Christopher Lucifer' which was supposedly written in response to Chris Blackwell's refusal to release the album. Most of these songs are glorified pop with occasional light psych leanings in the harmonizing vocals and guitar work, and more importantly some solid orchestral arrangements on songs like the opening 'The World is Cold Without You', a particularly lush 'Aline Cherie' and the mellow-jazz track 'Love Suite' with layers of horns to augment classical string arrangements, lilting piano and female backing vocals.
In total this isn't as consistent as the band's first two records, and possibly Blackwell was right not to release it at the time considering shifting musical tastes toward more pretentious progressive artists and 'cosmic' country rock that was being promoted by the Island label on the eve of the 70s.
But today one has to wonder why someone didn't have the foresight to capitalize on the band's name and their penchant for complex pop-psych that was certainly at least comparable to similar works by the Beatles, ELO and even the Beach Boys circa the same period. Surely with some decent promotion some of these songs would have made decent singles and the album as a whole would have moved a respectable number of copies. Too bad, but for those who are interested in the band I'll rate this a solid three star effort that is worth finding, especially if you are a collector of obscure, semi-legendary albums from this period.
I only mention this because it's the best explanation for this collection of outtakes, b-sides, demo cuts and other rarities, compiled and released in in the shadow of Cobain's funeral. I'm pretty sure the planning for the record began prior to Cobain's death so I'm not suggesting Campbell-Lyons was trying to capitalize on the media attention surrounding that which would have been a particularly egregious plan ; but that said, I'm sure Edsel's representatives realized that they could move quite a few copies by getting them out into distribution and letting confusion work to their advantage.
This one has a sort of futuristic cover depicting a theme that few serious Nirvana UK fans would have associated with the band's body of work. All that aside, the music should speak for itself regardless of how and why it got released. Here again, I can't get particularly enthusiastic. Almost none of these songs appear anywhere else in the band's discography, so anyone looking for a convenient hits package or even an anthology will be quite disappointed.
About the only recognizable track is "Rainbow Chaser", a peppy pop-pych number trimmed with brass accompaniment that gained the band some fame when it first released in the late sixties.
Otherwise many of these songs are either early promos or demo tracks that never made it onto studio releases when they were first recorded, several of which came from the latter days of the band after Spyropoulos left and Campbell-Lyons became pretty much a solo act.
But this doesn't mean the CD has no redeeming value. In fact, turns out the most interesting parts are the snippets of spoken-word narration Campbell-Lyons tells about certain music-industry people he has known, using them to preface related songs. And "Rio de Janeiro" describes a concert and collaboration between Nirvana and reggae star Jimmy Cliff on the eve of Cliff's big break, leading into "Waterfall" which features lead vocals by Cliff.
Not everything works well. Sounds more like something Sweet or Paper Lace or one of those sorts of groups would have put out. But there are a few keepers as well, including a cover of "Girl in the Park" by an obscure mid-sixties pop-psych outfit known as The Smoke and whose only album was titled 'It's Smoke Time' not very subtle but at least the rolling papers weren't included in the liner notes. The closing "Girl From Roxyville" is the strangest of all on this album, sounding very much like an 80s new-wave crooner and possibly intended to hint at future work from the Nirvana camp that never really came to fruition.
In all I think this was probably an exploitive album that would never have been released had it not been for Nirvana US , but I do really like the real-life stories introducing a handful of the songs, and there are a few decent tunes otherwise.
Still, this is clearly a compilation that will appeal at best only to fans of the band, so I can't give it more than two stars or more than a tepid recommendation. Engineer, Primary Artist, Producer.
