This release seems to be getting a bit of stick but I think its a little undeserved.

Its obviously low price and misses some obvious big hitters but there in lyes its strength. We get a number of rarer singles and B Sides, but REMASTERED. And unless you'd bought the all singing £90 box set its impossible to get these remastered versions on CD. Guernica is a rare treat, Made Of Stone backwards but with new lyrics, in a similar vain to Dont Stop. The clarity of the remasters on tracks such as Standing Here and What The World Is Waiting For make this a worthwhile purchase. Also of not eis the demo version of Mersey Paradise, which is a nice raw take.

This has been my proper introduction to The Stone Roses, and while on some research others would recommend one of the other collections (or indeed just their debut or both studio albums), the thing going for this album is its pocket-money price for 16 tracks. Sure, there seems to be some glaring omissions but a good wad of the big hitters are there. The Fools Gold remix isn't very interesting and some tracks towards the end are probably better heard in the context of an album. That said, from start to finish it's largely enjoyable. I would add though to only get this if you're counting pennies. 'The Very Best...' is probably the best buy for newbies.

The difference in sound from the other records is rather big. I love that it includes Simone and Guernica. Miss Where Angels Play.

Agreed. What the hell inspired Silvertone to remaster a crappy demo version of "Mersey Paradise" when they had the full studio version from "Turns Into Stone" to use. Big disappointment.

Mostly a waste of money. Except perhaps... 1 Feb. 2011
By M. F. Guevara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before I begin: if you're not a hardcore fan of The Stone Roses, you don't need this disc. Go buy the self-titled debut album reissued by Silvertone in 2009. It should have 12 tracks - 11 from the original UK album released in 1989, plus Fools Gold as a bonus track. The original album is one of the best rock & roll albums ever, and the 2009 remastering is spectacular - the music sounds so much better than it did on the original CD release.

Now, for the hardcore fans: you probably don't need this disc either. There is no logic behind the song selections on this compilation (which should not surprise you, given Silvertone's history of milking money out of the Stone Roses catalog through countless reissues). Having said that - you might not own the remastered versions of some of the songs on this disc, so it might have some value to you after all.

The tracks are as follows, with my commentary on the need for them to be on this disc.

1. Fools Gold. Full-length 12" mix. Already on the debut album reissue. Redundant here.

2. Waterfall. Already on the debut album reissue. Redundant here.

3. This Is the One. See #2 above.

4. Elephant Stone. Surprise - it's the 7" mix remastered, not the longer 12" mix.
A rare useful gem on this disc - the only other place I've heard it available remastered is the USB key (not the CD or LP) of the massive Collector's Edition of the debut album.

5. Guernica. Only available remastered on the Collector's Edition. Useful, if you didn't buy the massive box set.

6. (Song for My) Sugar Spun Sister. See #2 above.

7. Shoot You Down. See #2 above.

8. What the World Is Waiting For. Available remastered on The Very Best Of disc, and on the Collector's Edition. Useful here if you don't own those discs.

9. One Love. The shorter 7" edit. Available remastered on The Very Best Of disc. The 12" version would have been better here, since it's only available remastered on the Collector's Edition.

10. Something's Burning. The shorter 7" edit. Not available anywhere else remastered, but again, the 12" version would have been better.

11. Don't Stop. See #2 above.

12. Mersey Paradise. The demo version. Available on the Legacy Edition and Collector's Edition. Who the heck knows why Silvertone put this demo version on the disc instead of the standard studio version.

13. Going Down. See #5 above.

14. Standing Here. See #5. above.

15. Simone. See #5. above.

16. Fools Gold (A Guy Called Gerald Top Won Mix). 100% unnecessary and, in fact, ridiculous.

So there you have it. A gloriously wasted compilation effort from Silvertone. What's missing the most from this disc are the remaining b-sides (Full Fathom Five, The Hardest Thing in the World, Where Angels Play); the studio version of Mersey Paradise; and the full-length versions of One Love and Something's Burning.

The most logical thing to do, in my opinion, would have been to release the "b-sides" disc from the Collector's Edition as a stand-alone "Collection." Adding the 7" version of Elephant Stone and Sally Cinnamon would make it even better. But instead, we get a disc with a track selection that appears to have been chosen out of a hat. So buy this disc at your own risk. Or if you absolutely need the 7" Elephant Stone remastered, in CD-quality format.
