Nirvana's third and final studio release In Utero turns 20 this month. Recently, a letter surfaced that Steve Albini, the album's producer, wrote to the band before recording started.
The letter includes an element that's particularly notable to Minnesota audiences: Albini recommends Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, Minn., as the location for recording the yet-to-be-named album. It was at Pachyderm, in Feb. 1993, that Nirvana recorded In Utero.
The 20th-anniversary special editions of In Utero, released on Geffen Records, include scans of this letter.
Listen to Teenage Kicks on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 8 to 10 a.m., when Jacquie Fuller highlights tracks from In Utero.
