By request, these 12 songs are an odd assortment of various unreleased GN'R material. The sound quality ranges from good (Heartbreak Hotel, Ain't Goin' Down, Cornshucker) to really bad (It Tastes Good, Don't It?).
"Goodnight Tonight" is performed live by Izzy Stradlin. I have a Guns N' Roses version but the sound quality on this one is superior.
"Just Another Sunday," "Crash Diet," "Bring it Back Home," and "Sentimental Movie" are demos from the Use Your Illusion sessions and I rate the sound quality a B-
This is undeniably the best version of "Heartbreak Hotel" in circulation.
"Ain't Goin' Down" is a rip from the Guns N' Roses pinball machine. This track dates back to the Appetite days. It is as strong a track as "Think About You," "Anything Goes," or "Out Ta Get Me."
"Conshucker" is from the GN'R Lies sessions. It was deemed "too obscene" to be included on the album.
"It Tastes Good, Don't It?" was performed live by the band during the Use Your Illusion Tour. Included here only as a collector's item. It's an awful recording of an awful song.
"Too Much Too Soon" is another old recording from the Appetite days. I don't really care for this song, but why take my word for it?
"Dead Flowers" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash" round out the set and both Stones songs are featured here in acoustic renditions. The former is a good recording of a live performance and the latter is a poor recording of a studio demo.
