rare to the extreme

Condition: Very Good Plus

History Making: According to BILLBOARD, in 2008 at the time this award was certified by RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), it was the best-selling debut album of all time. TODAY, it is cited as the 11th best-selling ALBUM of all time (debut or otherwise). Consider that the total budget was only $375,000 for this young group that was basically unheard of and was "booed" offstage as they warmed up the crowds for Motley Crue.

Axl Rose became the "bad boy" of heavy metal and Guns N' Roses would be a name carved in rock history stone forever.

Notable in the story of Appetite for Destruction is the fact that while it took all of March and April of 1987 to record the album in FOUR different California studios, the percussion and sound tracks were essentially completed in six days, but Axl Rose, with his perfectionism insisted on recording his vocals ONE LINE AT-A-TIME, driving the rest of the band bug-nuts and out of the studios while he drove the sound recording engineers bug-nuts. But after the exhausting mixing was finished - what a debut it was....not just in the U.S., but worldwide.

This was never made available to the public. Never taken out of the box, but part of overstock from Mr. Kenneth A. Kittinger's Music Row workshop where he made GOLD & PLATINUM record awards for the music industry for 50 years for every major record label before his death at 91 years in 2016. Those were sent out to radio stations and VIP's who helped promote the sales. Postage is secured and tracked!
