I can't say I remember the day it was released.

Didn't get the album until maybe a year later. On tape!

Don't remember the exact day of release, but sweet child went to #1 on Aug 6, 1988.....exactly 1 week before my son was born.  My first copy was also on cassette.

I was too young for "Appetite" when it came out, but my first Guns N Roses tape was a "November Rain" single from 1992 with "Sweet Child O Mine" as a b side.  Needless to say I discovered Appetite very quickly after that.  They became my favorite band in the summer of 92, and still are.

I still remember the awesome dangerous feeling of going into this Sam Goody store as a kid and the dude sold me Appetite with that parental advisory sticker on it. Appetite was one of the first albums to get that shit on it. Felt like I was getting away with something dirty leaving that store.

Good one!  hihi

Appetite and Lies were bought as tapes for myself. Then vinyls for the Illusions and after that it was cds.


This reminds of the days when you could walk into a record store and they had stacks and stacks of vinyls all over the place. And some tapes....
And of course the vinyl singles.... Then it started shifting towards cds... And then the stores just faded away.

I wasn't into GNR right away..They were the big thing in my school but I was into still into the previous fad, the Beastie Boys..Due to them I started listening to Run DMC than other rap acts...On a family trip, I think Oct 1988, my brother was listening to AFD (on cassette) and it finally hit me..I've loved them ever since.....

It was October of 1987 that I fell hard for GNR. We had just got cable TV. I was watching MTV with my father. A montage of video came up which were George Michael, Bon Jovi, and GNR. My dad told me that I should listen to this band. A couple of days later, I did. Got AFD and my love affair of GNR has continued ever since.

AFD Sounds really good on cassette maybe even better than in CD Theres something about that cassette sound that works with GNR.

My Mother was not keen on my getting this one, due to that nasty sticker stuck on the front.  And because I was 11.

What saved me is that Dad is a huge rock fan and started hearing a lot about these guys.  He did a little research and assured Mom it was just bad language and nothing satanic or otherwise subversive.  So he smoothed it over and we bought the vinyl.

About halfway through 'It's So Easy', he turns to me and says "Well, your mother can never hear this.  This is a walkman band, not a play it on your boombox band." 

(God...look at that last paragraph : "walkman", "boombox".....man, am I old.)

I played the shit out of that thing.  Wore it out.

Just loved that song, and still do.  Consider it the best songs on either UYI album.

I know people who listened to this album

And they never reached Rocket Queen until years later. One of the greatest songs of all time

Naughty step awaits for sure

The way I got into 'Estranged' was rewinding my tape too far back after 'You Could Be Mine'.

Eventually, I had to hear the rest of that song.

The casette copy my sister made me of illusion II ended at you could be mine. the day i actually listened the album from hers original copy, and almost accidentally heard don't cry alt. and my world, i was chocked.
What no no this cant be on the real album, you made this. why would they put two dont cry's and a techno song in there??
Needles to say that original copy became mine very soon after.
Now i find those songs conplete the Illusions experience.

Casettes Rock
