The Stone Roses’ Debut Album Gets Deluxe Reissue Treatment

stoneroses The Stone Roses’ 1989 self-titled album, a record that’s often heralded as one of the greatest debut albums of all time, is set for a major resurrection this summer. On August 11, Silvertone/Legacy will deliver a deluxe 20th anniversary reissue of The Stone Roses in three different packages.

First, there’s a single CD “Special Edition” containing the original album, remastered by Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown and producer John Leckie. It contains the original album as well as with the full-length version of “Fools Gold”. Then there’s a 2xCD plus DVD “Legacy Edition” containing the original album plus a bonus disc of demos plus the Live in Blackpool concert film, shot in 1989.

Finally, there’s the mammoth “Collectors Edition”, containing everything in the “Legacy Edition” as well as three LPs containing the original album and 13 non-album tracks. Oh, and a 2 GB USB drive shaped like a lemon (you know, like the album cover) containing “all the audio, promo videos, ringtones, wallpapers, plus previously unseen John Leckie home video footage of the recording of “Fool’s Gold’,” according to a press release. Not to mention a book featuring photos and musings from the band and their cohort as well as people like Noel Gallagher and Mark Ronson. AND six art prints painted by guitarist John Squire for the covers of the album’s singles.

Whew. That’s a lot of Stone Roses.

    April Fools ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE is scrawled in blood red lettering on the side of the Chemical Bank near the corner of Eleventh and First and is in print large enough to be seen from the backseat of the cab as it lurches forward in the traffic leaving Wall Street and just as Timothy Price notices the words a bus pulls up, the advertisement for Les Miserables on its side blocking his view, but Price who is with Pierce & Pierce and twenty-six doesn't' seem to care because he tells the driver he will give him five dollars to turn up the radio, "Be My Baby" on WYNN, and the driver, black, not American, does so.
