The second EP by Guns N' Roses, released after Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide, was released in Japan only. The cover of the EP states Guns N' Roses, hence it is often called as such.[1] It is also known as Live from the Jungle,[2] named so because part of the large red text on the album's obi strip reads "raibu furomu za janguru", meaning "live from the jungle". This is a reference to the song Welcome to the Jungle, even though the song itself doesn't appear on the EP. The record has been released in LP, cassette, and CD format.[3]

Tracks one, four and five were recorded live at the Marquee Club in London on June 28, 1987. Track two and three sound like live recordings, but are actually studio recordings with overdubbed crowd noise. Track 6 is the studio version from Appetite for Destruction. The cover features the banned Robert Williams artwork also used (but very briefly) for Appetite for Destruction.
