Notes

This release features the original album artwork (showing Robert Williams' painting of a girl being raped by robots), which was later withdrawn and replaced with a tattoo-styled, skulls-and-crossbones motif.

The UK catalogue number appears on the back cover and spine (unlike on Appetite For Destruction, where it appears only on the centre labels).

There is another very similar release which included a sheet of Japanese peel-off stickers (see Appetite For Destruction).

Issued in a regular cardboard sleeve embossed with the Warner 'W' logo. Some copies feature a white sticker with black text reading "CONTAINS LYRICS WHICH SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND OFFENSIVE". Some copies also feature a black sticker with red and white text reading "INCLUDES THE SINGLES SWEET CHILD O'MINE AND WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE".

Includes a printed inner-sleeve with lyrics, credits and photographs of the band members. Some copies includes a white Guns N Roses Appetite For Destruction sticker (924 148-1).

All runouts are stamped except the few characters at the end of the matrix strings, which are hand-etched.

    A great sounding pressing. One of the best sounding records in my collection.

      Iconic album. This first press with the banned cover is the one to own if you can find. Great dynamics, balanced pressing good bottom end.

        For many years it was my favorite album of all time. I got it on vinyl today and heard a few more details than on cd or cassette on this edition.

          Awesome Guns N Roses album! I bought the record twice. I found both for a good price!
          It's worth buying this record! With original cover!!!
          Have fun!

            This German (Europian) pressing sounds amazing, the sound is fresh, fast, dynamic and very crisp.

              I Cherish My Original Copy Of Appetite For Destruction With The Banned Cover Art. Unbeatable Sound To My Ears, It Just Knocks And Rocks With Great Clarity And Bass, The Guitars Really Shred And Those Drums Really Pump Out The Speakers On My System. The Vinyl Mastering Of This For A Single LP Considering It Is A 54 Minute Album Is Astonishing. One Of The Best Produced, Mixed And Mastered Rock Albums Of All Time. Every Song Is Killer And Hooks You In And Doesn't Let Up Until It's Done And Even When It Is You Just Want To Go Back And Listen To It Again And Again.

                Very nice sounding copy in my opinion. I also have a newer repress of this record. It is almost unplayable to my non audiophile ears. This one with the banned cover as a bonus sounds great to me!
                • stuartkernow1985's avatar
                  I have the R side labels on both sides. Is this a common misprint or something else?

                    Like most of Alsdorf pressings this one has no chance compared to US OP or any other HQ issue from Sterling stampers (Japanese for example).
                    Great as collection copy thanks to banner cover.

                      Best days of my life, with this as soundtrack.. remember I was like 14 years old country boy living in a small town, driving around all day on my moped with friends, just living no worries, bonfires, music, beach trips, first time drinking and kissing girls. I'll never forget those day's. This was some of the music we heard on our getto blasters..
