Appetite for Destruction: Locked N’ Loaded
Appetite for Destruction: Locked N’ Loaded boasts 25 unreleased demos recorded during a 1986 session at Sound City, and two tracks cut during sessions with Appetite producer Mike Clink. The reissue will also include the original 1987 album remastered from the original stereo analog tapes, and 12 remastered tracks taken from of-era EPs and b-sides. Locked N’ Loaded will be available in several different formats, most notably a massive box set that includes four CDs, one Blu-ray (containing hi-def 5.1 surround audio of Appetite, bonus tracks and music videos), seven 12-inch LPs, seven seven-inch singles, a hardbound book and a variety of collectibles. The selection of ephemera includes five skull face rings, a replica of the band’s stage banner from their early club days, several posters, replicas of old fliers and ticket stubs and two temporary tattoo sheets featuring life-size recreations of the band members’ actual ink. The entire collection will be housed in a solid wood box wrapped in faux-leather and stamped with a 3D cross on its front doors.
