I like Use Your Illusion 1 & 2 but they would have left a real legacy if they’d split after AFD.

Too much good stuff in AWITC for me (if uneven)

Admittedly haven’t listened in a long time but some of the b-sides and loosies during then were great, some mix and matching with AWITC and they coulda had a stew going

Still got the compilation I made back then saved on Apple Music

I say it every time they come up, but it’s so weird that none of their early singles, EPS or b-sides are on Spotify.

And they could do a mega deluxe of AWITC. I had that same demo album, too, and although I can see why they pushed on, those songs were largely there. Maybe they should have slammed out another straight guitar record before their sound became more produced?
