This collection of four covers and two live 1991-92 BBC performances (”Violet,” ”Doll Parts”) was shelved by Hole’s former label when Kurt Cobain committed suicide. Courtney Love’s rendition of the Velvet Underground’s ”Pale Blue Eyes,” recorded mere months before that event, is eerily compelling, especially when she howls ”linger on.” But the cover image of a pair of wrists, decorated with newly healed scars, screams ”desperate cry for help” louder than any song here.
