Guns N’ Roses re-issue “Appetite for Destruction” on June 29.
“Appetite,” released in 1987, is arguably the greatest debut album of all-time. GN’R never matched it (but could have come close by condensing the follow-up “Use Your Illusion” LPs – I and II, issued simultaneously in 1991– into one disc featuring the best material).
The “Appetite” re-issue includes an outtake, “Shadow Of Your Love.” It’s OK. Not on a par with cuts that made the album.
Of more interest is a new video for “It’s So Easy.” It captures the original band in full flight on their home field, the Cathouse in Hollywood. The energy is incredible, even lip-sync’d.
