I thought it was originally a Hollywood Rose track...

In that sense, Anything Goes, Back Off Bitch and a few others are also covers..

Damn damn damn. GN'R has figured out how to get my money. The completionist inside me will not allow me to pass this up even though I don't need it at all. 

I am surprised there is any excitement about this at all.. I'll take a hard pass

Not quite the new album we were hoping for... Strangely includes SOYL too. https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/guns-n-roses-greatest-hits-to-be-released-on-vinyl-in-september/

Back off Bitch is one of the highlights of the AFD box set.

I was listening to a rip of the Mystic studio demo tape & I really like that version of Back off Bitch, the whole tape is great really.

Same for me, would love to see or hear some early live version in a decent quality, maybe when Marc decides to open his vault.

I don't know if this has already been discussed in the official merchandise thread, but there is now a t-shirt commemorating the release of the Greatest Hits on vinyl. It looks decent. Can be bought seperately, or with the picture disc or 2 LP as a bundle package.

Does anyone else find it ironic that the band is doing a cash grab vinyl release of an album they sued to prevent the release of in 2004?

Yep and was about to mention that in another post. You would think they would do some sort of booklet, and add with the vinyl and redo the greatest hits with a real different track listing but nope.....

That is one ugly shirt. Good job @Fernando. You've outdone yourself again as a manager

£30 as well, total rip off.

They should have used the left handed image of Slash from the picture disc.

Don't give them any ideas. :lol:

I really hope that was just a marketing photo error :lol:

So tinfoil hat stuff here.

What if Hardschool was/is intended to be on this release?

As far as I've seen there's no mock-up with the track list on the back of the LP. Could point to a tracklist still in flux or one that was hastily "updated"? Don't know if there's any more room on the LP's?

Also I know that this is intended as a vinyl release but will we get a CD release with SOYL on it?

They could have used some colouring for the shirt instead of dark grey light grey.:facepalm:. at this stage im hoping UMG manage the merch for the illusion anniversary if they can do a better job than this.

If you're right about Hardschool I'll buy it.  If not I have no interest.

ok, and you are not familiar with the typical marketing strategy in terms of best of releases?! honestly, this is surprising. i could have bet you are 16 or so 😄

because in history 9 out of 10 greatest hits albums have some kind of an unreleased extra track in order to make even those fans buy the album which already own the other content.

I'd see it more like 50/50, or maybe slightly leaning towards your opinion, but definitely not 9/10. And even if that was the case, GNR would be that 1/10.

ok, 9/10 is too much. i agree. 

i didn’t meant it literally, just wanted to draw a picture.
