GNR CD's

36 posts in this topic

Hey everyone! I just recently picked up some CD's, and had a few questions. The first one is a Live and Let Die CD single. I couldn't find it for sale anywhere or find any info on it. It looks different from all the others I have seen for sale.

The second, is the Sympathy for the Devil Single. Did a lot of the CD's have white cases?

It doesn't say. Honestly, it sounds like a studio with the audience over dubs (like Live Like a Suicide). I can upload the .mp3 if you want. At the beginning of Shadow of Your Love, Axl says "Wake up! Time to Play!"

I own that live and let die, I think the live version is from the mtv awards via satellite cant remember the show though

(Track 2 recorded live at Wembley Stadium, London on August 31, 1991.)

That was back when MTV played kickass tunes and awarded the rock genre. I remember watching that live

the single is legit, I bought it when it came out. it looks alot like the boxset cds but is not from the set.

http://www.discogs.c...release/1552007

here is the shadow of your love you have too:

I also have the other single you have in a black case though...

stuff has been in boxes for years, I should dig em out. I remember buying them back when they came out, there were tones of singles released around UYI it was crazy, some of them imported and I paid a high value on them at the time.

good buy on your part, great prices!

I think the Live and Let Die CDs we have might be UK ones. I guess with the Sympathy for the Devil it all depends which one you have. Those were the only singles I saw. If there were more I would have bought them in a second. I asked the clerk if he knew about anymore and he said a guy traded a bunch in and whatever is there is there. I wish I would have been able to get more but those were the only 2 left. Those YouTube videos are the ones from the LaLD cd I have.

Yes the four songs were from the June 28th show at the Marquee in 87'.

The demos were the Rumbo tapes. I was 13/14. Lost em ten years later. You have no idea how happy I was to see that a company made a component that could record a cassette tape to a computer,because one of the first things I did whenI got a computer n surfed the net was look for GnR music. I found the Rumbo tapes the Marquee show n every other scrap of Gnr that was there, I was in heaven lol good fuckin times!!!

Were the Rumbo Tapes on cd, cassette, or vinyl? It's so hard to find GNR vinyl bootlegs now days.

My original copy was a cassette, given to me by a friend in school.

Back then it wasnt to hard to find stuff on vinyl,even GnR,. When cd's came out the vinyl shops closed up, at least in my area.

Hell yeah bootlegs were easier to get. There was a vinyl shop by me,I shit you not, had anything n everything you wanted, any band, they had it!

Place was called Flips records, in Pompton Lakes NJ. I used to take the bus there, good fn' times!

This was before the internet, as well. But yeah under the circumstances it was easy if you had a good record shop near by.

The LALD single you have is the Germany release. The SFTD single you have is the US release, which was issued with white cases.

Damn... I would have bought a lot of stuff back then. Now it is so hard to find bootlegs... what you speak of would be a dream come true for me!

Germany? That's really weird... found it in a record shop in Appleton Wisconsin. I thought it was the UK release because I thought I saw another like it. Any idea on what it's worth? I also have some more stuff to post, and one I think might be worth some money.

My Lies CD does. The cassette is not sealed, let me go check it now. Yep, she's in there. I also bought the cassettes just because they are cool to have. The artwork on them is a little different then the CDs and Vinyl. Besides my single I don't have any other GNR vinyl :cry:

For value, based on the condition, I might say anywhere from $5 to $15 depending on the weather and bidders on ebay.

Most of the items here have little value, although cool pickups nonetheless. As for the promo UYI1 cd, at most $20 on a good day. That record store sticker on the front sure hurts.
