Here's what's new in the record racks:Guns N' Roses, The...


November 26, 1993|By Jim Abbott of The Sentinel Staff

Here's what's new in the record racks:

Guns N' Roses, The Spaghetti Incident? (Geffen): Axl Rose and friends cover such relatively obscure punk and hard-rock tunes of the 1970s as the Sex Pistols' ''Black Leather'' as well as material by the Stooges (''Raw Power''), Fear (''I Don't Care About You'') and the Dead Boys (''Ain't It Fun?''). The band also gets uncharacteristically melodic on the golden oldie ''Since I Don't Have You.''

Metallica, Live ----: Binge & Purge (Elektra): For those who didn't get seats in the taping section during Metallica's latest tour, the band has compiled this three-disc collection culled from a five-night stand in Mexico City. The set comes with accompanying videotapes and a 72-page book.

Beavis and Butt-head, The Beavis & Butt-head Experience (Geffen): Those lovable anti-role models are branching out with an album of skits and throwaway songs by their favorite bands. The first single features Cher on a quasi-grunge cover of ''I Got You Babe'' with barbed commentary by you-know-who. Other featured acts include Nirvana, Aerosmith, Anthrax and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Cool. Heh, heh.

Elton John, Duets (MCA): Not to be outdone by Ol' Blue Eyes, Captain Fantastic teams with Bonnie Raitt, Tammy Wynette, RuPaul (on ''Don't Go Breaking My Heart''), Don Henley, Kiki Dee (on the lead single ''True Love'') and others on this follow-up to The One. (For an alternate title, how about The Twos?)

Also in the bin: Haddaway, Haddaway (Arista); Snoop Doggy Dogg, Doggystyle (Death Row); Sister Act II soundtrack (Hollywood); Linda Ronstadt, Winter Light (Elektra); Janis Joplin, Janis (Columbia).
