This is a short CD, consisting of only eight songs, that was released following the success of the bands Appetite for Destruction CD.

The disc is notable for the first four songs being live songs, and the last four being mellow acoustic songs. This makes a bit more sense in the world of LP's and cassette tapes where each album had two sides.

The live songs are good but nothing especially noteworthy. One of the songs, Mama Kin, is an Aerosmith cover and they do a good job on the song.

Patience is my favorite song on this disc. It is a beautiful sappy ballad and was the hit song off the disc. Used to Love Her is a fun tongue in cheek sort of song. You're Crazy is a slowed down version of the same song which appeared on their previous album.

One in a Million is a song that closes out the disc, and a song that ignited a lot of controversy at the time this collection was released. Some of the lyrics are very "non-politically correct."

This is a nice collection. Nothing groundbreaking, but worth listening to for the acoustic songs.
