Nirvana will be releasing the entirety of their major label catalogue on vinyl, reports Billboard. Universal Records subsidiary, Original Recordings Group, has commissioned Bernie Grubman to remaster Nevermind, In Utero and MTV Unplugged in New York and all three will be made available on 180 gram vinyl.
ORG's founder, Monti Olson commented on his vinyl plans:
We're going to be releasing a lot of classic alternative music from the 80s and 90s on 180 gram vinyl. Stuff that's more obscure and more popular. We're in negotiation with quite a few of those artists. We have some new accounts that are experimenting with vinyl, like Best Buy. I don't know how strong their initiative is, but they've alotted a little bit of floor space for vinyl.
But the bulk of the vinyl in the retail space goes through independent stores - the Amoebas and the Waterloos of the world that have always been in the vinyl business. But what's happening is more and more people are coming in with a curiosity about buying record albums
