Just for a bit of fun. If you could turn Guns N' Roses' UYI's I & II into one definitive disc, which tracks would you choose? This double album is unfairly maligned in my opinion and I personally like all of it to varying extents, although I would say that a few of the tracks would have made better B-sides than album tracks.

So, let's make a start based on the general rule of a roughly 80-minute limit:

1. Right Next Door To Hell (3:02)
2. Don't Damn Me (5:19)
3. 14 Years (4:21)
4. Don't Cry (4:44)
5. Locomotive (8:42)
6. Double Talkin' Jive (3:24)
7. November Rain (8:57)
8. Civil War (7:42)
9. Estranged (9:24)
10. The Garden (5:22)
11. You Could Be Mine (5:43)
12. Coma (10:13)

I think that should squeeze on to one cd, even though the only one of the longer songs I left out is Breakdown! There are a few criminally underrated songs in there like Locomotive and Estranged. As clear as it is why AFD is considered an all-time great (I agree) I never quite understood peoples' willingness (eagerness in some cases) to overlook the UYI albums, as there is some exceptional stuff on there.

I did this a few years ago and burnt it to a CDR:

1 civil war
2 live and let die
3 14 years
4 you could be mine
5 don't cry
6 locomotive
7 knockin' on heaven's door
8 coma
9 so fine
10 november rain
11 pretty tied up
12 estranged

also, looks like geffen released their own version, too:

We seem to be done here. Wrong board, dudes.
Chest wounds suck (when properly inflicted).
