I have a black version of this without the sticker on the cover. I assume that is the current version that is available.

Went to the record store today and found yet TWO more just released vinyls (different covers & release labels) of the same show. That's THREE vinyls released within 1 year not to mention the older bootlegs from back in the day! Please for the love of god no more releases of this show, find another one!

There hasn’t been a new Guns N’ Roses studio album since 2008′s Chinese Democracy. However, fans will be able to enjoy a couple of vintage live shows broadcast on radio more than two decades ago.

According to Bravewords, Live Radio Broadcasts will be released April 27 via Bandana Records, though the band’s involvement in the double album hasn’t been confirmed.

The first disc was recorded Feb. 2, 1988, at the Ritz in New York. The show from the Appetite for Destruction era includes numerous tracks from that album along with covers of Aerosmith’s “Mama Kin” and U.K. Subs “Down on the Farm.”

The second disc is an April 9, 1992, concert at the Rosemont Horizon in Chicago during the Use Your Illusion tour. The setlist has several songs from those albums such as “November Rain,” “Live and Let Die” and “Civil War.”

Just picked this up today and its pretty much the Ritz show from '88 that was aired on MTV back in the day. As for as sound quality goes it's not bad at all but not a mastered recording by any means, audio levels are high so you don't have to crank it up to listen like many other live vinyl pressings (mostly bootlegs). With only 1k pressings you would be silly not having this one in the GnR collection.

Can anyone comment on the sound quality of this pressing?

Is it worth picking up or is it just mastered from a bootleg CD?

This red 2LP is very tempting but the Back On Black label has not got a good reputation.

Is this a live album, a compilation or re-recordings of old tracks??
