On September 8, 2009, twenty years from the moment when four Manchester musicians stepped onto the stage of the Blackpool Empress Ballroom for what would become a legendary gig, Silvertone/Legacy is set to re-release the classic album that is THE STONE ROSES in 4 new formats.

Over two decades, the impact of the band's debut album has increased exponentially, inspiring musicians to form bands, marking a re-engagement of guitar music with the mainstream, and creating a youth culture that retains its influence across music, fashion, politics and art to this day.

THE STONE ROSES: COLLECTOR’S EDITION of this landmark album features a fully remastered version of the UK album by original producer John Leckie and Ian Brown, alongside a host of bonus discs, unseen footage, additional tracks and interviews with high profile Roses fans.

The full DVD of that legendary Blackpool Empress Ballroom show is included while Disc 2 delivers a complete set of remastered B-sides and non-album A-sides for the band’s Silvertone singles, including such favorites as ‘Mersey Paradise’, ‘Elephant Stone’, ‘Fools Gold’, ‘What The World Is Waiting For’ and ‘One Love’.

A third CD features ‘The Lost Demos’, a previously unheard and much sought after selection of early recordings of the album tracks, B-side single tracks, plus the never before heard track ‘Pearl Bastard’. Three heavyweight vinyl LPs also collate the material across 6 sides.

Further unheard and unseen material comes in the form of five backwards tracks and John Leckie’s personal home movie ‘Up at Sawmills: The Making of Fools Gold’, which are contained on a Lemon shaped USB - in homage to the album’s iconic sleeve art.

More about the band:

Meshing simple, exceedingly catchy hooks with rhythmic beats, The Stones Roses led the UK’s so-called “Madchester” scene straight into the U.S. with their eponymous debut. The Stone Roses achieved one of the most successful fusions of classic pop songwriting and acid house culture, and managed to snare fans from both genres. By the end of 1989, their debut had landed on many a top-ten list for that year; NME even declared it “The Greatest Album Of All Time.”

Though the band never realized the same triumphs on their second, and final album, repercussions of their debut album’s classic pop songwriting and bright riffs could be heard well into the next decade; scores of similar UK artists, including Oasis and Travis, owe their success and popularity in no small part to this seminal album which shaped a future genre of danceable, contemporary 60s-rooted pop music. Indeed, twenty years later, the album’s impact is still felt, demonstrating an influence across music, fashion, politics, and art to this day.
