I just love the headline on this article and it’s a totally spot on review in my opinion. I still bought the CD of course, even though I had all the songs!
I remember listening to the two rare and unreleased backwards tracks at one of those playback stations in Our Price and thinking what a load crap and what a rip off. So I didn’t buy the more expensive 2 CD version.
Fast forward a few years and the gap in my Roses was gnawing at my happiness. Even though I knew the songs were crap and could’ve easily bought them at the time, I just had have them and finally bought the limited edition on Ebay.
Now I wonder if I’ll buy the Stone Roses Collector’s Edition …
