GN’R Greatest Hits Vinyl - release Sept 25th

I agreed with the sentiment of the review but you cannot add Madagascar to Greatest Hits when it wasn’t even released as a single.....

CD could as it was a single. I’d have preferred a brand new Best Of encompassing the entire discography with a couple of unheard live tracks and an obligatory new track. But I’ll take GH on vinyl seeing as we never had one before.

Pretty much spot on this comment!

Yep I'd forgotten the review mentioned Maddy when I posted.

Agree!

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

Pass     Hard pass....   I don’t care how many more times they can repackage old music, not buying it!

It’s a totally bizarre release - 7 years later etc. I’m sure it was specifically for Walmart or something and it was profanity free which is why it has an odd track list.

I think that's exactly what it was. A rebranded version since Wal-Mart wouldn't sell anything with the parental advisory sticker on it. It's basically a redundancy in the catalogue at this point. Might be worthwhile for a collector I suppose.

I'm pretty sure the mix of KOHD that's on the compilation isn't available anywhere else.

It is not a different mix. It is the exact same as the album version, without the phone call interlude -so it's simply a bit shorter.

And - some folk hate the phone call part so this version will be their ‘go-to’ version. 👍

It is pretty unbearable, they should have recorded it in a similar style to The Ritz '88.

Makes no difference to me though as my go to is the acoustic version from 2001!!! :axl::tommy: :robin02:

I’m pretty sure KOHD still had the phone call on the 2004 greatest hits, right?

So is this the 1998 edit? Where the phone call was removed? That’s what’s on the new vinyl version, I take it?

I’ve not listened to it yet...I think the conversation got split to talk about the UYI compilation disc from 1998. I’d imagine KOHD will be the same as the 2004 disc....anyone listened to it yet?

Just checked the official YouTube upload of 2020 GH and yeah KOHD is still the same, phone call and all.

My apologies for misunderstanding where the conversation had lead to. Yes, the “no phone call” edit of KOHD is exclusive to the 1998 version of UYI.

Ha ha - no need to apologise. 👍

Better was a single, it would have been a great addition to the new GH record, especially a newer reworked version with the current lineup. 

Even OMG, since it was a single in 1999.

Silkworms would have been a funny choice.

Better (or even better Hardschool) should have been on the second side to make it an even 4 tracks per side.

I really hate pre-ordering an album and then not having it 5 days after the release date.

Yeah, that's really shitty. I have to say, I was REALLY impressed by ordering it from HMV in the UK. It arrived on the morning of release, really well protected in great packaging. I'd fully recommend them for the future.

I ordered from Banquet Records as they're normally pretty cheap, it was £34.99 shipped for the splatter one. Next time I don't think I'll be using them.

I wonder if maybe they haven't received the stock allocation they thought they were and they're waiting to find out if they can get more? 

HMV is showing it as sold out, but might be worth keeping an eye on. If you live near a branch they might have some copies in store?

I ordered the Picture Disc from the GnR site and received an email stating that it'll be 2 weeks late "due to overwhelming demand".
