They're so lazy it would probably be some old demo from the 80's like Crash Diet. 

Remastered jumpin jack flash.

Looney tunes theme.

They already remastered Jumping Jack for the AFD boxset two years ago, so that ship has sailed, and Axl sold the rights to Crash Diet to another band back in 1992, so that one is off the table too.

Aint Goin’ Down with Vocals is still a strong possibility, tho.

I’ll be shocked if that song isn’t the selling point for the UYI boxset. 
 

Clean up the demo and release it, or just have Axl record new vocals over the instrumental backing track that they used for the pinball machine.

Thats true but they remastered SOYL and tauted that as a new single!. That wont stop them from doing the same thing to jumping jack flash...

Crash Diet or Sentimental Movie would be awesome. Never been a fan of BIBH - although weirdly always liked Too Much Too Soon?!?

I think they sold Crash Diet off though, didn't they? It has at least been recorded by two other bands. Too Much Too Soon is a great song. Just Another Sunday was fun as well. I love all that shit. Too bad they never got official releases.

I guess they could still do crash diet albeit unlikely as you say with the other releases. Even better quality versions of those demos would do!

I think Crash Diet was never a GNR song to begin with. It's another West Arkeen input. Might be wrong.

The two songs you mentioned (TMTS & JAS) are my favorites out of the unreleased UYI era. Bring It Back Home would've been great with a proper recording too.
I mean, same-period demo of The Garden for instance was shit, yet the released version is fine. Many of these songs could have been at least better fillers than some released stuff.

You are correct. Written by Arkeen, Axl, Del James and Danny Clarke (but likely mostly Arkeen). When Axl decided not to do anything with it for GN'R, Arkeen was free to sell it to other bands, which he did. He sold it to Asphalt Ballet who released it on their second album. Clarke, one of the co-writers of the song, was the guitar player in Asphalt Ballet.

Man, if they really come out with a cover or some Illusion leftover like Ain't going down...how sad and lame that would be.

I’ll be honest - I’d LOVE a proper version of AGD. All the bootlegs of the UYI era version were pretty low quality sounding.

I dig that song as well, a definite version is very welcome. As a bonus track or a B-side or something, but not as the lead single for THE NEXT CHAPTER, lol.

Well - I’ll take anything to be fair! Personally think it will be used for any UYI anniversary stuff anyways. I’d wager a version of Hardschool will likely be the one. 👍

The version of Ain’t going down with full vocals (not the pinball version) absolutely kicks ass

Agreed - pity the sound quality is so poor on the versions floating about. I take it no-one ‘cleaned it up’ - I know there are a few techy people on here who have done some amazing things with low quality recordings?

I actually did that a couple of years ago. Tried to make it sound more polished, unfortunately there are some Cracks/Pops in it, but it sounds kinda cool. Where should I upload it to? Direct links are not allowed, right?
