This review is from: Stanley Road [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
I've liked Paul Weller's stuff from the Jam onwards and Stanley Road was a personal favourite from his solo period. Each listen reveals new layers. But there's always a dilemma when you see a new version of a CD you already own. Is it just another attempt by the record company to fleece the buyer or what? I'm pleased to say that this makes it worth giving the original to the charity shop and buying afresh particularly at Amazon prices. The extra tracks are a mixed bag of B sides and outtakes, but there are enough gems to be worth the price alone. A Year Late is particularly fine. Add in the third DVD disc which contains a documentary containing Weller and the other band members, Noel Gallagher and even Peter Blake plus some promo clips remixed in Dolby 5:1, and you have a bargain. Buy it!
