“Super Deluxe Edition” of GNR’s ‘Appetite For Destruction’ consisting of four discs listed for sale
It appears that the cat is out of the bag with respect to Guns N’ Roses‘ upcoming special announcement on May 4, 2018 as Amazon has listed a “Special Deluxe Edition” of Guns N’ Roses‘ debut full-length album Appetite For Destruction for sale at $179.98 US.
It is also indicated that there are four discs and the “Super Deluxe Edition” will be available on June 29, 2018.
Ultimate Classic Rock has reported that the snippet of a song playing on the new Guns N’ Roses website gnr.fm is the track “Shadow Of Your Love.”
Back in April 2016, RollingStone described Guns N’ Roses‘ “Shadow Of Your Love” as follows: “Guns N’ Roses began — literally — with “Shadow of Your Love,” a hyper-charged holdover from Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin‘s days with hard rockers Hollywood Rose. Tracii Guns, a.k.a. the “guns” in Guns N’ Roses, even played a guitar solo on the original Hollywood Rose demo. “The first song we played in rehearsal was ‘Shadow of Your Love,’ and Axl showed up late,” Steven Adler once said. “We were playing the song, and right in the middle of the song, Axl showed up and he grabbed the microphone and was running up and down the walls screaming. … We knew right then what we had.” In the summer of 1986, they played the tune in a studio when auditioning eventual Appetite for Destruction producer Mike Clink, and decided he “captured the essence of Guns N’ Roses,” according to Slash. For reasons unknown, the ripping track came out only as a B side — and with fake crowd noise added, at that.”
