Recordings of two year old Kurt Cobain talking and singing
This tape recording was made by Kurt’s aunt, Mary. It contains a 2 year old Kurt talking into the tape player, with the family listening to him in the background. The reverb function is pushed on at one stage, where you can hear Kurt refer to ‘Boddah,’ (he thinks it’s Boddah talking, when it’s in fact his own voice being bounced back to him) his childhood imaginary friend, and the same person as to whom his suicide note was addressed to. It also contains a funny impersonation of a car repair customer (his dad worked at a garage) and other amusing comments.
(Kurt singing ‘Hey Jude’ by the Beatles)
