Stone Roses Live,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crimson Tonight (Audio CD)
A rare opportunity to purchase live Stone Roses music. This 4 track recording was recorded in 1995 at the Feile Festival in Ireland. This EP was released only in Australia and Japan. The music is all from the Second Coming album and finds the band in great form. The vocals are not great but you could argue they never were. Ian Brown's voice seemed to suit the early Roses material and songs like I am the Resurrection and Waterfall are rightly Indie classics. On the later stuff when the guitars came to the fore and the style of music changed I feel the vocals sound out of place. I love the Roses but aside from Love Spreads feel The Second Coming marked an end to their magic. Nevertheless this EP is a piece of history capturing one of the final gigs from one of our most important bands. A nice addition to the collection but unlikely to be played more than once.
