"It's about time. The Stone Roses released only two albums: the incredible "Stone Roses" and the enjoyable "Second Coming". I can't put my finger on why I like the Roses so much. Of course I love John Squire's ethereal, ringing guitar, and the rhythm section of Reni and Gary Mournfield never lets up. Let's put it this way, the Stone Roses are to the Beatles what the Jam are to the Who.
The only fault I can really find with this 2 DVD package is, do we really need 3 versions of "Waterfall" and "I Wanna be Adored"? Hmmm, maybe. Also, the material is all from "Stone Roses". Didn't they do any videos, TV appearances, or concerts in support of "Second Coming"? Probably a marketing decision and we'll see another 2 disc DVD next year. Oh well, put my order in now.
I read reviews of this package on the Amazon UK site and saw that it was routinely slammed for the poor audio and visual quality of the Blackpool concert. Well, all I know is that it looked and sounded pretty good, for a 15 year old concert, on my copy. I don't think the "for true fans only" comments were justified, based on my experience.
High points: Waterfall, She Bangs the Drums, Shoot You Down from the Blackpool concert. Fool's Gold and One Love from the video section. Fool's Gold and I Wanna be Adored from the TV appearances.
If you've never heard or heard of the Stone Roses (why are you reading this, then?) buy this DVD and join the hundreds of thousands of us who have seen the light. If you're a SR fan, what are you waiting for?
Oh, if you didn't pay attention to this review, the 4 bands mentioned in my title are the Roses, the Beatles, the Jam and the Who."
