This was the first Stone Roses CD I bought. At the time I had borrowed Turns Into Stone off my friend, and I thought that this would be the perfect album, because it contained all the songs off Turns Into Stone except Simone (which wasn't very good anyway). But then you find that the recordings of Fools Gold and Elephant Stone aren't the same, or that it misses songs like Bye Bye Badman and This Is The One. Also, the disc doesn't contain any songs from The Second Coming, and there is no John Squire artwork. The Roses themselves didn't even recieve any money from sales of this album. If you really want to see and hear what the Stone Roses were really about, you should buy The Stone Roses - Anniversary Edition, Second Coming, Turns Into Stone, Garage Flowers and Sally Cinnamon EP. But if you just want to get a feel for their sound, this will do.
