    What's the situation with the rights for these? It seems that no one wants to relase them. I'm pretty sure Nirvana must have been an oversight by the 'good bands who've done unplugged' commitee.

    Where is REM and The Cure? It just seems like even MTV don't like showing them that often so why can't we buy whole DVD and CD collections of these concerts?

    I don't know, but I wouldn't mind getting my hands on the Pearl Jam unplugged session.

    Isn't the Alice in Chains Live Unplugged and MTV concert? I don't have the CD with me right now but I remember at one point they make a joke like "We now return you to an LL Cool J video".

    If you want to know who owns the performances, MTV does. MTV owns the video and audio from all MTV Unplugged sessions. Occasionally they allow some performances to be distributed by other companies, but no performances can be released without MTV's approval.

    I have the Nirvana Unplugged in New York CD and the 10,000 Maniacs Unplugged...but, haven't been able to find any other discs locally. Do they not exist? www.cdnow.com only has MTV Uptown Unplugged listed as "other" Unplugged albums.

    Steven,

    To me it appeared that Layne didn't even really want to be there. There last album had only 5 good songs (IMHO) and it sounded rushed. I think Layne had more fun playing with Mad Season than he did with Chains. I have a Mad Season concert that was released on VHS many moons ago, and it seemed like Layne enjoyed that more than Chains. Probablly because Jerry and Co. were always on his ass about the heroin. BTW, I would love to have that Mad Season concert on DVD. That album blows away anything off of Chains last album (IMHO).

    -Dean-
