Here is the story so far of my involvement: So obviously they were looking to put old stuff (flyers, demos, pictures, etc.) on the boxset.  Why they aren’t all on there I don’t know, but I have hea

Yes. They planted that tree there 20 years ago just for this moment, to black him out.

Kind of interesting at the Sound City version of Shadow is closer to how Axl sings it today than the cleaned up single version. I believe I read that Axl recorded line by line even in the AFD era, so that kind of makes sense to me.

Downloaded the super deluxe from Itunes, been listening to just the appetite portion so far. Definately liking the differentiation on the songs, Sweet child, ISE, TAY, and RQ definitely sound amazing. My Michelle and Nightrain I quite enjoyed as well. Will give each more listens as well

Maaaaaan.  This box set is a beauty.  Wish i had the money for the L&L set but so happy with this one.  They really put a lot of love into it.  Doesn't feel like a cash grab at all to me... One of the biggest albums of all time deserves something this nice. 

 

I can't wait to get home from work tomorrow to spend more time with it lol

Ok, so I will run the risk of exposing my lack of technological expertise here, but I do have a question.  I got the SDE and when I put CD2, 3 or 4 in a computer or car CD player, it does not bring up the song titles - it just has 'Track 1', etc.  Do I need to do something?  I wanted to create my own digital copies of these eventually without having to re-buy, but am a little lost as to why it does this. Thoughts?

You'll have to tag the tracks, so the player knows what track is what. This program does that: https://www.mp3tag.de/en/

Depends on what operating system you use and what player you use on your computer to listen.

If you're on Windows, Mediamonkey will automatically retrieve tags from an online database when you insert the CD.  It will also rip the CD for you in whatever quality you want

I bought the album off of itunes (can't spend too much $$)...so happy with my purchase! Managed to listen to it twice now...

I wasn't aware just how early on Axl and Co wrote NR--I remember Axl talking about it in "Making of the F'n videos" but had no idea it was writen so long ago. Overall I can see how well Axl has come along with his vocal/vocal range (UYI and SI).

Listening to the two disc. Just arrived.

This remaster is long overdue. I am surprised Chinese Democracy came first. 

It sounds so much better. I envy the kids who listen to this album for the first time on this disc. I feel like I've been robbed. Listening to great songs on such shit quality. Wish I listened to it on vinyl first. Or even cassette. Oh I did listen to it on cassette first. 


 

That's all.
