UME/Geffen celebrates Guns N' Roses' incredible musical legacy with Use Your Illusion I & II, the ultimate box set for the band's 1991 multi-platinum releases Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II.

Use Your Illusion I & II Super Deluxe features a total of 97 tracks, 63 of which are previously unreleased. The original studio albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II have been fully remastered for the first-time ever, from high-resolution 96kHz 24-bit transfers from the original stereo 1/2-inch analog masters.

Guns N' Roses' highly anticipated third and fourth studio albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II were originally released simultaneously on September 17, 1991. With the massive success of GN'R Lies and Appetite for Destruction, the band had the daunting task of a follow up album. Not only did the band deliver, Guns N' Roses surprised the world by releasing not one but two new, full length studio albums. Upon release, Use Your Illusion I reached No. 2 and Use Your Illusion II took the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 chart concurrently, selling over 500k in the first two hours of release, with an estimated sales of over 685k and 770k respectively within the first week of release.

Use Your Illusion I features the band's bombastic cover of Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die," the Top Ten hit "Don't Cry," and what NPR described as "one of the ultimate hard-rock power ballads," the band's '90s anthem and MTV staple "November Rain," which hit No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100, spending a total of 30 weeks on the chart, and holds the title of the first video from the '90s to hit the 1 billion views mark on YouTube - now nearing 2 billion views. "November Rain" now includes a real 50-piece orchestra for the first-time ever newly recorded, conducted and arranged in 2021 by Grammy® Award winning & Emmy Award nominated composer Christopher Lennertz.

Use Your Illusion II features the band's Top 50 single "You Could Be Mine," "Civil War," which reached No. 4 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, Bob Dylan's "Knocking On Heaven's Door," plus an alternate version of "Don't Cry" featuring different lyrics.

Use Your Illusion I & II Super Deluxe Twelve-LP + Blu-Ray box set features a whopping 97 songs, 63 of which are unreleased audio and video tracks. The original studio albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II are both remastered for the first-time from high-resolution 96kHz 24-bit transfers from the original stereo 1/2-inch analog master tapes. The box set features an impressive, anamorphic illusion showcasing each of the two covers at different angles. The Twelve-LP box is pressed on 180-gram heavyweight audiophile black vinyl with six premium tip-on gatefold jackets.

The Super Deluxe Edition also includes the complete live audio recording Live In New York, taped at the Ritz Theatre on May 16, 1991, with sound newly mixed from original multi-track tapes. This legendary show is one of three warmup shows for the Use Your Illusion Tour and features Izzy Stradlin on guitar, the original version of "Don't Cry" and a special performance of "You Ain't The First" both of which features the late Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon on guest vocals.

Also included is the complete audio recording of Live In Las Vegas taped at Thomas & Mack Center on January 25, 1992, newly mixed from the original multi-track tapes and features the band's new guitarist Gilby Clarke. The bonus disc is a Blu-Ray Video of the complete Live In New York concert film, newly transferred from 35mm film prints to 4K UHD and presented in 1080p 24fps HD, in its entirety, along with audio mixed in Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround, and PCM 48kHz 24-bit stereo. The Blu-Ray menu features the brand-new live music video "You Could Be Mine." This is the first-time release of any complete audio and video concerts from the Use Your Illusion era GN'R.

The Super Deluxe box set is housed with a 100-page hardcover book with unreleased photos, memorabilia and archival documents; Conspiracy Inc. replica fan club folder with membership card; four Conspiracy Inc. 1991/1992 Use Your Illusion era replica fan club newsletters; 10 Double-design lithos that reveal 1 of 2 unique images when inserted into the supplied red & blue reveal sleeves; seven band 8"x10" photo prints; four Use Your Illusion tour replica cloth sticky backstage passes; a Ritz Theatre 5/16/1991 replica concert ticket (with the original misprinted date of 5/15/1991); and a brand new 24"x36" band poster.
