      This album is an essential not only for Guns n Roses fans but to all the people who love rock and glam metal.The first cd starts with four of their most powerful tracks(Nightrain,Mr.Brownstone,It`s so Easy,Welcome to the Jungle)and then gets softer`n sweeter and ends up with a piano solo followes by November Rain.The second cd starts with the power of Out ta Get Me,then gets softer,but then explodes in the greatness of 4 of their best songs(Move to the City,You could be Mine,Rocket Queen,Sweet Child of Mine)where Slash takes the hell out of his guitar.Then they play 3 very popular tracks(Knockin on the Heaven`s Door,Don`t cry,Estranged)and finish in a great way with Paradise City.

      This was my first Guns N'Roses album that i had actually bought. Although i had listened to Use Your illusions 2 and Appetite for Destruction i had didn't really get into GnR until i bought Live Era. This album has a collection of the best songs that GnR have produced in their original form (You know Axel, Slash, Izzy etc.). Not only this but the versions on this c.d. are actually better than the originals. For instance in Mr Brownstone you finally get 'I don't worry about nothing no because worryings a waste of my f*****g time'. So where originally f*****g was left out of the original it has been put in the live. This c.d. shows of GnR's real talent as performers, because they weren't only just singers they earned themselves the title of the best band in concert because they talk to the audience and make everything fun and light hearted. The speech before I used to love her is brilliant and will have most people in stitches. In some ways they've gone over songs and made them a bit heavier, slower or just generally better, Paradise City is far better on this than on Appetite for Destruction, throughout the song the guitar is better and the lyrics are sung a lot faster making it a challenge to keep up. It's even got a song which wasn't released on anything else and that's It's Alright. which is a brilliant piece and has a great piano piece all through. The best songs on here are Don't Cry, Patience, Mr Brownstone, Paradise City, You Could be Mine (which is a F***ing brilliant version) and My Michelle. All through this c.d it proves that GnR are one of the greatest bands that there ever have been and hopefully their new album will be as good and will live up to their previous work.

      After being a long time fan of Axl and the boys a new release even though it is old songs recorded at their many gigs is very welcome. The best of the best. My fave songs are on here and the crowd reaction to GnR is amazing. You can imagine that you are there, you can taste the atmosphere. A true fan will love this CD. Axl never failed to deliver and wow Slash well if half the new "boy" bands had half the talent that he has in his little finger well they would blow their socks off. Perhaps I am biased but I loved this. It has been £14.99 very well spent. Also the ilustrations of the flyers are brilliant.

      For any serious guns fan this is a must buy. The album should not be called 87 - 93 live era but 87-93 the guns n roses era. At this time they were the biggest band in the world. The album has all the great songs on but the highlight for me has to be november rain. The live version captures brilliantly all the emotion and anger that the whole band put into there playing. This is heavy rock at its best and after hering it i doubt anyone will dispute that the guns are the best rock band of all time.BUY IT!

      If you like it loud n' heavy then this is a must have, for your collection. Guns and Roses were the ultimate rock band and truly lived up to there reputation of bad ass,don't mess with me mother *******. This collection of live hits spans the 6 years when they ruled the roost in club rock going onto there massive stadium rock shows, Each track jumps out at you with the attitude and aggression that was part of the gunners make up,all the classics are given there own slot including Patience, November Rain and Sweet Child Of Mine, everyone is a winner, with the majority pulled from Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusions 1&2, each of these albums is a classic in there own rights but if your new into G'N'R then theres no better way to get aquainted with Axl Slash and co. The sound quality remains true to there raw studio sound and none of the characteristic that made them the top rock band around are lost on this double live set. The cover notes could have been a bit better but there's some good early advertisments featured, but what the hell it's the music that counts. And with rumours of a new G'n'R lp in the pipeline,who knows what the line up will be or whether or not they'll go out on the road with it, I suggest you get on that Nightrain down to the Paradise City, because...... Nothing Lasts Forever,and this is them at there best.BUY IT

      During the era this CD is taken from (1987-93), there was only one name in Heavy Rock, that of Guns N Roses. They conquered the world with their heavy rock music and bad boy attitude. When Guns 'N' Roses played live, you could be sure of a riot or some controversy surrounding every performance. But they were the 3rd biggest stadium rock acts of all time, and this album captures some of those great performances. Technically they are a very good live band, as Axl's hoarse machine gun-mouth vocals sound the same as they do on the albums, and slash's amazing guitar playing at least matches if not surpasses the solos on the albums. The album also seems to lean towards the heavy rock side of the band, because almost the entire of Appetite for destruction is on this album, which is a good thing as Appetite is one of the best rock albums ever. The only gripe i have about this album is the exclusion of a few killer tracks, namely "Coma" and "Civil War" from the Use your Illusion albums. Apart from this, it is a solid album which will satisfy even the hungriest of Guns N Roses fans.
