Nirvana Test Pressing of ‘In Utero’ Sells for Big Bucks on eBay
An extremely rare test pressing of the classic Nirvana album ‘In Utero’ just sold for big bucks on eBay. One of only three known copies, the test pressing sold for $1,250 after 11 bids – starting from a mere $99.
‘In Utero’ was Nirvana’s last full-length album before the passing of frontman Kurt Cobain, whose posthumous 45th birthday we recently noted with a ‘Favorite Nirvana Song’ Readers Poll. Released in 1993, the album contains gems such as ‘All Apologies,’ ‘Rape Me’ and the immortal ‘Heart-Shaped Box.’
The seller described the super-rare vinyl test pressing as, “In mint top near mint condition, probably played once at most to check the fidelity, and comes from an industry collection.”
