For extended listening (and depending on source) better quality search ATM's 'Box Of Gypsys".

When most bands sit down to make an album, they'll categories the material into an A-list, a B-list and a C-list. The A's and most of the B's make the cut, and the remaining B's and the best C's might qualify as B-sides or be saved for the next project. The rest sits in the can. Not so with the "Illusions." Every last freaking track they had -- everything, the rock, the covers, the rambling epics, the strange experiments, even two takes on the same song -- made it to the market. At the very least they could have collected the "hard rock" on one disc and the "less rock" on the other (they separate quite nicely, almost a 50/50 split), but nooooooooooo, the psycho holding the rudder had to put it all out as a commingled mess.

Izzy Stradlin was the rock-'n'-roll soul of that band (I love that guy, hence the avatar), but they buried him in the mix of the "Illusions," and he walked away shortly after the discs came out. What a lost opportunity for us all.
