That unboxing video that was leaked and then pulled down was back up Thursday at midnight ET with all the details on the insanely elaborate reissue of Guns n' Roses first proper album.
Set for a June 29th release and titled Appetite For Destruction: Locked n' Loaded, it's packed with so much that it takes a full two-minutes-and 20-seconds for the clip to scroll through all the features included. It's priced at $999 and it's available for pre-order now on grnmerch.com. We watched the video and have all the details below.
But before we get to that, it's worth noting that the track-listing reveals some interesting gems, including covers of Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel," Aerosmith's "Mama Kin" and two different versions of the Rolling Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash," as well as two different early versions of "November Rain" from the Sound City Session. One previously unreleased track, "Shadow of Love," produced by Mike Clink, is being released as a single and we have it for you here.
The album will also be available in the less elaborate Super Deluxe Edition (four CDs, one Blu-ray, hardbound book box set) for $179 and the two-CD Deluxe Edition priced at $19.98.
