4.0 out of 5 stars ULTIMATE SLASH, 15 July 2011
This review is from: Slash (Platinum Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
The biggest problem when Slash released his debut album earlier this year was that he included bonus tracks that were only available in certain countries, so many people were left without certain songs such as Fergie's & Cypress Hill's version of Paradise city, Alice Cooper & Nicole Scherzinger "Baby Can't Drive", as well as songs by Beth Hart and Koshi Inaba. Well now with this 2cd 1dvd Deluxe Edition all these are included and a whole lot more!

Also included on the bonus cd are 5 live tracks, 4 of which are sung by Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy, which include an acoustic version of his own track from the album "Back from Cali" as well as Acoustic versions of Velvet Revolvers "Fall To Pieces" and Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child Of Mine", both are good versions and shows that Kennedy was definitely the right singer to take on the road in support of the album, we also get a full rocking version of "Nightrain" which is outstanding! Instrumental track "Watch This" also has a live version and while it doesn't match what Slash did in the studio with Dave Grohl and Duff Mckagan it still delivers. The big dissapointment is that Nick Oliveri's(ex queens of the stone age) track "Chains and Shackles" isn't included and that is a pity, however "Nothing to Say" sung by M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold is basically the same song just different lyrics and production and is included on the main album, it would have been nice to have both versions.

The Dvd includes a making of the album video and shows how all the different singers prepared for their parts as well as the different techniques they all go through, and of course they all talk about what an honour it was to work with Slash. Slash also does a track by track review which is interesting. It also includes the video for "By The Sword" sung by Wolfmothers Andrew Stockdale, it also has making of the video For that song.. It does not include the new video for "Back From Cali" or for "Beautiful Dangerous" which is sung by Fergie. It does have some live video's though for both Myles Kennedy song's "Back From Cali" and "Starlight" as well as Kennedy singing Slash's Snakepit song "Mean Bone"

Of course the main album itself is great with loads of stand out tracks, with plenty of guest vocals including Ozzy, Ian Astbury from The Cult, a great track from Chris Cornell ""Promise" which shows what a fine vocalist and songwriter he is, Kid Rock and Iggy Pop also contribute as does Lemmy from Motorhead.

The only drawback of course is that they should have released this at the same time as the main album as I'm sure Slash fans will now end up paying out for the album again.
