Stone Roses Debut Reissue Details Announced

    Back in February, news broke that the Stone Roses’ self-titled debut would be getting a deluxe reissue, but little was offered by way of release date or specific details. Today brings news of the release date, August 11, and details regarding the three(!) different reissue packages.


    The first package is a single disc “Special Edition” that is remastered by frontman Ian Brown and producer John Leckie that features the original album and a full length version of “Fool’s Gold.” The three disc “Legacy Edition” contains the original album, a disc of demos, and the “Live in Blackpool” concert film.


    The “Collectors Edition” is where things get interesting, as it is the “Legacy Edition” plus the album on vinyl with an extra record of non-album tracks, a lemon-shaped USB drive that features audio, promo videos, ringtones, and wallpapers, a book featuring words by Noel Gallagher and others about the album, and six art prints painted by guitarist John Squire for each of the album’s singles.
