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.

I guess this is old news, but I just noticed that One in a Million isn't on the remastered cds.

Guess it's not correct to have this included with some of lyrics offence. Oh well. I still think the song is good and unfortunately in this day and age, some people feel the way Axl sings in this song.

Here is something to ponder?

Why did Guns have such a problem with Manny Charlton? They sound fantastic on these, now remastered, Sound City demos. There are certain elements which I prefer over Appetite

I don't care I loved getting the deluxe edition and seeing the photos of the band from their hey days.

AFD is still one of my go to cds to listen to. Love every song on this cd.

I think re-releasing it was cool so more younger people can hear it and become GNR fans.

My brother was a baby when AFD was released but as he got older, since my mom is a huge GNR fan, he heard it and learned to play drums to all the songs.

Nothing wrong with getting more fans.

Good music will always get more fans as time goes on and AFD is still one of the all time best rock albums ever.

Getting all the added stuff was cool for me.

I listened to it all for two days but, for although the album still has a certain vitality, I think I have grown completely bored with these songs. There is only so much you can listen to the same stuff.

Got my hands on the Super Deluxe. 
Noticed one of the ticket stubs replicas, the one that is supposed to be for the Troubadour Jan 4th 1986, it has a typo and it says Jan 4 1985!!!! WTF.

Way to go Team Brazil/Universal. 

Honestly, the box is a waste of money.

@troccoli confirmed that the typo was done by the band back in 1986. They put the date wrong back then. He has the original ticket.

The one we see in Reckless Road seems to display 1986 though. Or maybe it's a corrected version?

Sorry, I've no idea. Just repeating what I read on here.

Exactly.  The band realized the misprint while they were still stamping the tickets so some have the year 85 and some 86

Today marks the 31st anniversary of the original 'Appetite' release (7/21/1987). 

I can remember the exact day I bought it, on cassette; it was 10/10/1987. To say everything changed for me on that day would be a bit of an understatement.

 

 

 

a silent envy towards you. many of us only discovered GNR thanks to Terminator 2 :)

I'd need the credits for the super deluxe edition. Should be book pages 92-93 if I'm not wrong! can someone please help me and send me a scan or a good quality photo of those two pages? I'd really appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance for your time and help, I really appreciate it!

I first heard the album sitting in a tractor, making silage in rural Ireland, summer 88. 

It sounded dangerous then, there was menace. It stood out a lot from the shite I was hearing in the charts, Roxette or whatever.... 

I remember reading the lyrics and liner notes on the cassette inlay card and thinking 'what the fuck kinda lives do these guys live, its not sitting in a fucking tractor surrounded by fields. 

A few years later I proceeded to live out the rural Irish version of this lifestyle. It was great while it lasted! 😂 

I listened to side one far more than side 2 that summer, The solo in Paradise City just blew me away. 

I was 9 years old. 😂

I can't believe I didn't notice this before but for the 2 disk set, "You're Crazy" from Lies is missing. It's strange that it would be considering the back of the sleeve says "B-Sides, Ep's, and more"

 

I'm sure this has been noticed by now by everyone else but was there any reason given? Or is it just sloppy work on the part of the label?
