NEW YORK (Billboard) - The 3-CD Nirvana boxed set With the Lights Out, due in stores Nov. 23, will take a chronological look at the Seattle band's brief but enormously influential career, beginning with a Led Zeppelin cover from its debut show in 1987 to solo acoustic performances by frontman Kurt Cobain just prior to his 1994 suicide.

A fourth disc, a DVD, includes nine tracks captured during a 1988 rehearsal at the home of bassist Krist Novoselic's mother.

Kicking off with a run through Led Zeppelin's Heartbreaker, disc one of the Geffen Records set sports early versions of familiar tracks like Floyd the Barber, Polly and About a Girl, demo recordings of the Leadbelly tracks Grey Goose, They Hung Him on a Cross and Ain't It a Shame and undated tracks presumed to have been recorded in 1987 or 1988, such as Beans, Clean Up Before She Comes and Don't Want It All.
