Nirvana – MTV Unplugged in New York (1994)

Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York might have become one of the most mystic live & unplugged albums of all-time. Maybe the fact that the concert first aired on MTV on December 16, 1993, just a few months before the tragic death of frontman Kurt Cobain, created the dramatic yet legendary aura around the release, which it hasn’t lost t this day – more than 20 years later.

AC/DC – If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It) (1978)

My dad bought it for me on cassette when I was a little boy – not even 10 years old – in a small music shop that was specialised on classical music, but also had a small pop music section. […]
