Hard rock icons Guns N' Roses have revealed details of an epic Use Your Illusion I & II box set.

Revisiting the groundbreaking third and fourth album from the Los Angeles legends, both albums are coming in vinyl, CD and super deluxe packages that include a whopping 97 tracks – 63 of which are previously unreleased.

Originally released in 1991, the Use Your Illusion records are responsible for some of GN'R's most monstrous hits including November Rain, You Could Be Mine and Civil War, as well as their era-defining covers of Knockin' On Heaven's Door and Live And Let Die

But as well as the two full-length albums, depending on which snazzy version of the album you opt for, you'll also get full live recordings from New York in 1991, Las Vegas in 1992, and much more on CD or vinyl.

If you're a true superfan though, the super deluxe sets come with a 100-page hardcover photobook, Conspiracy Inc. replica fan club folder with membership card, four Conspiracy Inc. 1991/1992 Use Your Illusion era replica fan club newsletters, 10 Double-design lithos that reveals 1 of 2 unique images when inserted into the supplied red and blue reveal sleeves, seven band 8x10 photo prints, four Use Your Illusion tour replica cloth sticky backstage passes, a Ritz Theatre 1991 replica concert ticket (with the original misprinted date) and a brand new 24x36 band poster. Phew!

The Use Your Illusion box sets will be released on November 11. Perhaps it'll rain?
