About this deal

were more the illegitimate offspring of earlier, poodle-haired LA monstrosities such as Motley Crue. For a while I have been considering re-purchasing one or more of these albums, so was delighted to come across this greatest hits compilation. Axl Rose immediately tried to block the release by suing Geffen, saying it would ruin his focus on Chinese Democracy and if he were to get the album finished and released sooner, the Greatest Hits album would be selling more, leaving the album unnoticed.

Released by Geffen in part because of the delay in the making of Chinese Democracy, the album is subject to lawsuits by band member Axl Rose and former band members in an attempt to block it's release due to it's track listing. While their Neanderthal stance was a brief respite to the over-pc 80s (check the unpleasant original cover to the first album) nobody told the band it was a joke. With the five-years-in-gestation Chinese Democracy album by single remaining G'n'R member (Axl Rose) reaching mythical status, and with gigs cancelled and the band in disarray, Geffen have little choice but to offer us this album. So, less a guilty pleasure than a warning to all people who think spandex, heroin and anger management problems are like, cool, man. A power house rock group from the 90's and John Connors favorite band - well worth some investment, whether your reliving your youth or new to GNR.Despite the album having almost no promotion it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart and number three on the Billboard 200 chart upon it's release. While, in retrospect, fellow graduates of the class of 1987 are about as cool as poodle perms and spandex, the LA bad boys still rock like gods. The band is in full support of the vinyl reissue and have asked us to rework the artwork for a new feel with different colours and new photos. The vinyl is flawless and sounds amazing no pops or crackles it sounds so much better than the cd version.

Previously only available digitally and on CD, Greatest Hits will be pressed as a 2LP set on 180gram audiophile black vinyl and a 2LP set on gold colored vinyl with red and white splatter. Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, released on March 23, 2004. Despite the album having almost no promotion, it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart [1] and number three on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release.Though none of their subsequent albums matched the drug-crazed genius of Appetite for Destruction , they did, as the Greatest Hits reminds, have their moments. And even that starts with the lovely lines: 'I'm a cold heartbreaker - fit to burn - and I'll rip your heart in two. There are no hidden insights into the inner workings of the group, no lost classics, and no evidence of their contribution to a new generation of musicians. The clue's in three of the first four tracks (''Welcome To The Jungle'', ''Sweet Child O' Mine'', ''Patience'').
