Guns N’ Roses 97-track Use Your Illusion boxset released this November

Guns N’ Roses have announced that Use Your Illusion I & II, the ultimate box set for the band’s 1991 multi-platinum releases Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II, will be released on 11 November 2022.

Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II were originally released simultaneously on 17 September 1991 following the success of GN’R Lies and Appetite For Destruction.

Upon release, Use Your Illusion I reached No. 2 and Use Your Illusion II took the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 chart concurrently, selling over 500,000 in the first two hours of release, with estimated sales of over 685,000k and 770,000, respectively, within the first week of release.

Use Your Illusion I features the band’s cover of Paul McCartney’s Live and Let Die, the Top Ten hit Don’t Cry, and the band’s ’90s anthem and MTV staple November Rain.

November Rain was the first video from the ’90s to hit one billion views on YouTube. November Rain will now include a real 50-piece orchestra for the first time ever, newly recorded, conducted and arranged in 2021 by Grammy Award-winning & Emmy Award-nominated composer Christopher Lennertz.

Use Your Illusion II features the band’s Top 50 single You Could Be Mine, Civil War, which reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, Bob Dylan’s Knocking On Heaven’s Door, plus an alternate version of Don’t Cry featuring different lyrics.

The Super Deluxe Seven-CD + Blu-ray and Super Deluxe Twelve-LP + Blu-ray box sets feature a whopping 97 songs, 63 of which are unreleased audio and video tracks. The original studio albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II are remastered for the first time from high-resolution 96kHz 24-bit transfers from the original stereo 1/2-inch analogue master tapes.

Both Super Deluxe Editions also include the complete live audio recording Live In New York, taped at the Ritz Theatre on 16 May 1991, with sound newly mixed from original multi-track tapes. This legendary show is one of three warmup shows for the Use Your Illusion Tour and features Izzy Stradlin on guitar, the original version of Don’t Cry, and a special performance of You Ain’t The First, both of which features the late Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon on guest vocals.

Also included is the complete audio recording of Live In Las Vegas taped at Thomas & Mack Center on 25 January 1992, newly mixed from the original multi-track tapes and features the band’s new guitarist Gilby Clarke.

The bonus disc is a Blu-ray Video of the complete Live In New York concert film, newly transferred from 35mm film prints to 4K UHD and presented in 1080p 24fps HD, in its entirety, along with audio mixed in Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround, and PCM 48kHz 24-bit stereo.

The Blu-ray menu features the brand-new live music video You Could Be Mine. This is the first-time release of any complete audio and video concerts from the Use Your Illusion era GN’R.
