According to Navarre.com and Amazon.com, Cleopatra Records has set a June 1 release date for "The Roots of Guns N' Roses", a collection of the very first demos recorded by Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin before they became GUNS N' ROSES.

The album features five demo recordings that havenít been heard in decades, plus new remixes by former GN'R member Gilby Clarke. These rare tracks showcase the raw talent of Axl and Izzy that was just beginning to blossom into GN'R.

The story of GUNS N' ROSES began when L.A. GUNS founder Tracii Guns introduced guitarist Chris Weber to Izzy Stradlin in the parking lot of the Rainbow Bar And Grill. After jamming together at Izzy's place, the two decided to form a band and recruited a vocalist, Bill Bailey, better known to most as Axl Rose. Together, they drew inspiration from the diverse musical scene emerging in Hollywood and, with the help of drummer Johnny Kreis, recorded a demo under the name HOLLYWOOD ROSE.

For years these demos have remained in the vault, never appearing on CD. Now, Cleopatra Records is bringing these raw recordings to the masses. As a special bonus, Gilby Clarke took these recordings back to the studio and polished up the rough edges.

I don't mean to seem rude, but that's kinda sad. Maybe Axle should give up on the G&R name and find something else to market, his recent antics have only served to make him look foolish and this seems to be more of the same... releasing 5 songs 3 times on 1 album smacks of unoriginality and stunt marketing designed to make up for an inadequate disc.

And why is Fred Coury involved with this project ? :p

I'm surprised Nikki Sixx let Tracii do those overdubs. :crazed:

No, I believe you're wrong. That's supposed to read as "These rare tracks showcase the raw talent of Izzy, along with an appearance by the future Master of All Loonies, that was just beginning to blossom into GN'R."

Why have Gilby remix and not throw on some guitar licks? That's weird.

Actually, I am not wrong. The entire posting is taken from the article, not my words.
