I have been waiting for this CD since March, which was when it was supposed to have come out. Don't know what the drama is there, but I'm just happy to have it now.
I never had legitimate, digital version of his unplugged, MTV performances, so this is a special treat me to have them now.
What I like about this product (getting technical now, not about the music, which I'm an obvious fan of):
1. The remastering of all the songs are top notch. Sound great!
2. I like the fact that the cover is not plastic but a hard cardboard. Over the years, I have grown in my appreciation for cardboard CD coverings over plastic. They last longer, and I like the fact there is no special insert in those pesky plastic covers.
3. The other side of this cover is George a bit younger, and he looks divine.
4. There was a liner stuck in the cover sleeve that serves as a mini-biography of the "Listen Without Prejudice vol. 1" album. It goes into what George did and thought as he put this album together. As a true GM fan and history teacher, this is a delicious treat.
Either you are looking to replace your "Listen Without Prejudice vol. 1" album, or to add the MTV unplugged songs into your music library, this would be a great addition for any GM fan.
SOUND & PACKAGING
I've listened to both CDs in their entirety. Excellent sound quality (and disc two actually includes "Fantasy" f/ Nile Rodgers; it's a bit jarring after "Praying for Time" but one does have a hard copy). The artwork on the packaging is sharp; it's a shame that it's not issued with a digipak-style cover to keep in good condition.
Not counting the front and back covers, the booklet insert has 14 pages.

++ You'll note that "Everything She Wants" has an erroneous writing credit and claims a sample that has not appeared in previous versions of ESW.
At the risk of being cheeky, I double-checked a handful of previous Wham! and GM recordings - seems like George had the lone writing credit on this song. The MTV Unplugged version on the disc does not feature a markedly different performance.

I confirmed that yes, "Waiting for That Day" does correctly attribute the RS sample.
Image three || pages 11 - 12
Yes, you can see that the Michael/Jagger/Richards writing credit appears correctly.
Images four & five || blurry printing on the CD itself
I've attached two pictures of 88875158052D1, the LWP disc.
You'll note that the "(R) & (C) 2017 G.K. Panayiotou, under exclusive license" text is blurry. I've circled it in image five.
It's not the picture; the rest of the text is crystal clear on the disc.
Perhaps all initial runs of 88875158052 were released with these errors; if so, what a shame.
