Product Description

Amazon.com

Guns N' Roses' career could be neatly summed up in a lyric from their song "Pretty Tied Up": "I just found a million dollars that someone else forgot." Indeed, GNR satisfied a grassroots public hunger for bigger-than-life hard rock at a time when legions of alternative bands were enjoying their first burst of overweening critical attention and commercial cachet. The last and most spectacularly successful band to prosper from Hollywood's burgeoning 1980s Sunset Strip glam-metal scene wrapped a couple decade's worth of sometimes tired clichés around a tight, assaultive musical attack that enticed millions yearning for poor role models. And if their edgy songs often blurred fantasy and reality, the best of them had a street-level honesty that couldn't be denied. A de facto greatest-hits collection culled from performances recorded around the world, Live Era best documents the early, ferocious performing prime of GNR's original quintet on its first disc, leaning heavily on their landmark Appetite for Destruction album to great effect. But the second volume often chronicles the band's steady decline into bloated self-parody and neo-Vegas "professionalism." This band needs a horn section like Slash needs another drink! --Jerry McCulley

For six years, between 1987 and 1993, Guns N' Roses ruled the rock world. It was six years of accusations of being racist, riots, tempter tantrums, swearing on live TV, urinating on planes, very public feuds with other bands, and of course, unbelievably great rock n' roll. From the days of when GN'R brought authenticity back to rock n' roll, when Bon Jovi were considered the premier rock band, to surviving the onslaught of grunge, GN'R were rock gods. In 1999, five years after the semi-original Guns N' Roses rocked an arena for the last time, the posthumous "Live Era '87-'93" hit the stores.

While "Live Era" is quite good, it could have been better. Guns N' Roses was a great band, and put on an exciting live show, there's no denying that. "Live Era" is filled with classics, from each release, minus "The Spaghetti Incident" (1993). The band sounds great and performance on each track is top-notch. That said, "Live Era" is flawed in two ways-its chronology and production.

As the back of the CD states, the songs on this CD were "recorded across the universe between 1987 and 1993." For some bands, like Nirvana or Motley Crue, it wouldn't be any problem to compile a live album with songs from different years. With Guns N' Roses, however, it doesn't quite work. That's because the original Guns N' Roses went through four distinct phases:

Phase I: 1986-1990: Axl Rose- vocals, Slash- lead guitar, Izzy Stradlin- rhythm guitar, Duff McKagan- Bass, Steven Adler- Drums. This lineup, generally regarded as the definitive one, recorded "Appetite for Destruction" (1987) and "GN'R Lies" (1998). This lineup was basically Aerosmith on speed, with an element of punk and the Rolling Stones.

When I first listened to Guns N' Roses The Live Era '87-'93 I was amazed. Not since Appetite For Destruction have I heard such a powerful cd. I enjoyed that it had several of Guns N' Roses songs that were wild as well as calm (Nightrain, Mr. Brownstone, November Rain, Don't Cry) My very favorite part of the cd, is that Axl explains some of his songs, Used to Love Her: is a joke, Estranged is a like a walk in the park..., there is even a part where Axl tells people to stop smashing others.
Unlike some other live albums Axl and the band sound great.
Also this has some really cool band pictures.

As I listened to this CD, I wondered if I had hyped it too much in my mind. I saw GnR in Baton Rouge in 1992. They blew the roof off of the Assembly Center. They rocked for 3 1/2 hours. This CD does not have 1/10 the energy of that show. Who selected these cuts? What about Coma, Don't Damn Me, Double Talkin' Jive, Garden of Eden, Civil War, etc. Anything but Move to the City. Where are the elaborate intros to Sweet Child, Paradise City, Knockin' On Heaven's Door. Why do we hear Axl asking the crowd to move back from the stage. Why not one of his trademark rants? Where and when were these songs recorded? Across the Universe? What is that? I can only hope they correct their mistakes and put out another live CD. This time I will listen to it first.

Back in '91, I was THE biggest GN'R fan on the face of the earth: I knew all of their lyrics word by word (even though I didn't understand 'em all, they played a huge part in my future mastery of the language), knew every single cymbal crash from their drums, I could sing every single note of their guitar solos. But then, as the original lineup of the band started to slowly but surely erode, so did their impact on me and I started to get interested in other artists by default. Why do I bring this up? 'Cause I think that you should know where I come from and where my head's at now in order to get the full picture of this review.

GN'R started as a glamed out, punked up hard rock band from L.A in the mid 80's. But unlike some of the earlier Californian rock bands such as Van Halen, Ratt, Motley Crue and countless others, there was something inherently different to this bunch of slackers: they were a mean, angry, borderline violent group that meant EVERY SINGLE word they said, be it their paranoid delusions ("Out ta get me"), their macho posturing ("It's so Easy"), their struggle with addiction ("Mr Brownstone") or...their fragility ("Sweet Child o' Mine).

They just presented themselves as they were, and because of that, they came across as genuine. Musically though, they were pretty raw: singer W. Axl Rose was an energetic and effective frontman, but he could also be pretty rough around the edges; drummer Steven Adler was far from being a virtuoso, but made up for that with energy to spare; rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin was a great songwriter but a somewhat limited player (by his own admission), bassist Duff McKagan was adequate but not stellar, and riffmeister Slash was a diamond in the rough, alternatively mind blowing and lackluster depending of his inebriated state.

Live Era is a fantastic collection of live Guns N' Roses tracks. "Recorded across the universe between 1987 and 1993" as the booklet says, it presents a pretty awesome portrait of the band as a live act. For those of us who were too young to catch G N'R in their prime, this set is most welcome. The song list is great, just about any Guns song you most want to hear live is included. Every track from Appetite For Destruction except for two ("Think About You" and "Anything Goes") are performed on this CD, as well as some of the best tracks from Use Your Illusion. "Patience", "Used To Love Her" and "Move To The City" from G N' R Lies are here and a cover of Black Sabbath's piano-based "It's Alright".
The performances are high energy and hard rocking. Axl is in good voice (most of the time), Slash plays with his usual intensity, Izzy (sometimes Gilby Clarke) provides the solid rhythm guitar and Duff and Steven/Matt anchor the band very well. The only problem really is the fact that the performance dates and locations are not listed, so what performances these are is anybody's guess. Still, it's great stuff and should be welcome in any rock fan's collection.
Guns N' Roses was an electrifying hard rock band and these two discs give us a glimpse of what this rock behemoth sounded like at the peak of their power. Hopefully more live performances will be released from the vaults in the future. As the success of the recent Greatest Hits collection shows, the world is hungry for more Guns N' Roses.
