The countdown clock has been on, and it looks like it is a countdown to an epic release...a Guns N' Roses box set that will include 49 (!) previously unreleased songs from the Appetite For Destruction period. This isn't a handful of a few songs that are sweetened, this is big, from one of the biggest bands at their most raw and creative period.
Here's what it will cover.
The release will be on four CDs or seven 180-gram LPs. The original Appetite record will be remastered, with the 1986 EP Live ?!*@ Like A Suicide. Throw in another EP of B-sides, 25 unreleased tracks from the Sound City studios in 1986 that weren't used, a 96-page book of never before seen photos, and that doesn't cover all of it. Pretty amazing stuff.
Hey, when things are going good, you might as well cash in.
No word on price, but look for it June 29th.
