Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite For Destruction gets a major reissue with mega box sets

 4CD+blu-ray SDE with 5.1  • Money-no-object Locked N’ Loaded set

Universal Music will reissue Guns N’ Roses 1987 album Appetite For Destruction in June and it will be available in a number of formats including a 4CD+blu-ray super deluxe edition, a 2LP vinyl package and an astonishingly extravagant Locked N’ Loaded edition which is packaged in a ’faux leather and wood cabinet’ and contains everything in the SDE plus 14 further vinyl records and an extraordinary amount of non-musical content.

The super deluxe and Locked N’ Loaded feature 73 tracks with an impressive 49 unreleased tracks. The core elements of these bigger editions (there is also a cut-down two-CD deluxe) include the album remastered from the original analogue tapes (for the first time), B-Sides N’ EPs and Live Like a Suicide EP and 25 songs from the 1986 Sound City Session. Other audio of note is two unreleased tracks from the Mike Clink Sessions and a 5.1 surround sound mix (by Elliot Scheiner) on blu-ray audio.

The most popular edition is likely to be the Super Deluxe Edition which contains the four CDs and the blu-ray, which features the album, bonus tracks and music videos all in brand new 5.1 surround sound. This disc also features a music video for It’s So Easy that was recorded in 1989 but never finished. This set also contains a 96-page hardcover book with unpublished photos from Axl Rose’s private archive and a variety of memorabilia. It’s worth noting that the aforementioned “73 tracks” includes the 5.1 surround mixes and videos as separate ‘tracks’.

The Super Deluxe Edition also comes with ‘collectibles’ such as prints, replicas of concert tickets, a wall poster, an art print by Robert Williams, and a replica of the then welcome flyer for the Welcome to the Jungle video shoot, handwritten by Slash.

The massive Locked N’ Loaded set is crazy…. it is £850 (!) and brings together the super deluxe CD and vinyl sets, adds seven 7” singles on yellow vinyl, 12 new illustration lithos visualising each song from the album, posters, buttons, patches, metal guitar picks, lapel pins, USB stick, turntable mat and more (the full content list is below). It’s only available via the band’s website.

The two-CD deluxe edition has a unique second CD which mixes B-sides, EP tracks and some of the unreleased 1986 Sound City Sessions. The standard vinyl is a 2LP gatefold set which has a ‘Hologroove Hologram’ of GN’R Logo on side four.

The buying decision is actually fairly easy… the 4CD+blu-ray super deluxe is really the one to go for. You can always add the remastered 2LP vinyl if you wish. The Locked N’ Loaded set is so expensive (and so BIG) that you will know straight away whether it’s even remotely feasible for you to stump up.

Appetite For Destruction will be reissued on 29 June 2018
