Guns N’ Roses have announced a new box set collecting Use Your Illusion I and II (via UMe/Geffen). The latest package of the albums, originally released on the same day in 1991, comes in a variety of forms including 12-LP and seven-CD sets, a Blu-ray edition, a digital release, and more, all of which feature remastered audio; the full package includes 63 unreleased tracks and videos. The reissues are out November 11. Listen to an unearthed live version of “You Could Be Mine,” recorded at New York’s Ritz Theatre on May 16, 1991, below.
The “super deluxe” editions include a full Live in New York album taped that night, along with a 100-page hardcover book full of previously unreleased photos, a surfeit of memorabilia, including a replica Conspiracy Inc. fan club folder and membership card, and some glossy photos and posters. There will also be single CD and double LP reissues of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II.
