Stone Roses Get Deluxe 20th Ann. Reissue

 

But kids… it was ONLY
a band, not a movement…

While hairy-palmed fanboys anxiously await that Stone Roses
reunion
that ain’t never gonna happen, Legacy kindly steps into the gap on
August 11 with a 20th anniversary edition of the band’s classic
self-titled 1989 debut. It’ll have all sort of bonus swag, depending on which
of the formats you spring for.

 

It gets kinda confusing, so here’s the scoop, direct from the
label, and pay attention:

 

 

Marking the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the
legendary self-titled debut album by The Stone Roses, Legacy Recordings will
reissue this highly-revered set in three distinct formats.  The NME has
declared The Stone Roses  to be “The Greatest Album of All Time,”
and it’s hard to argue with that proclamation when considering its string of
timeless singles:  “I Wanna Be Adored,” “She Bangs The Drum,” “Waterfall,”
“Made of Stone,” “I Am the Resurrection.”   Original producer John
Leckie has returned to the studio with vocalist Ian Brown to remaster the album
for maximum sonic grandeur. 

 

               
The Stone Roses will be released in 3 distinct packages:

 

 

1)     
Stone Roses: Special Edition (1CD) – Remastered
original album with full-length version of “Fool’s Gold” and expanded booklet.

 

2)     
Stone Roses: Legacy Edition (2CD + DVD) –
Remastered original album plus a second 15-track CD titled “The Lost Demos”
which includes the  previously unreleased “Pearl Bastard.”  Also
included will be the previously unreleased in the U.S. “Live In Blackpool” concert
DVD, shot in 1989.  Everything will be packaged in a 28-page booklet which
will include input from Ian Brown, Mani, Reni and John Leckie.

 

3)     
Stone Roses: Collectors Edition (3CD + 3LP + DVD +
USB + BOOK + 6 ART PRINTS)       

*  A super deluxe 12″ album folder with
three 180-gram heavyweight vinyl LPs including the original album and 13
b-sides and non-album tracks housed in a gold foil-embossed hardback slipcase.

*  Includes the remastered album, the
“Lost Demos” CD, and a third CD of b-sides and non-album singles.

*  A lemon-shaped USB containing all the
audio, promo videos, ringtones, wallpapers, plus previously unseen John Leckie
home video footage of the recording of “Fool’s Gold.”

*  A 48-page book overflowing with unseen
photos and brand-new notes from the band, producer John Leckie, those involved
20 years ago, and high-profile fans such as Tim Burgess, Noel Gallagher, Bobby
Gillespie and Mark Ronson sharing experiences about the album.

               
*  Six 6×12″ individual art prints painted by John Squire.
