Second pressing Black Vinyl. The tracks were remastered from the original tapes. You can tell a lot about a band by the songs they leave off their albums. Manchester's Stone Roses released just two albums but those albums tell only part of the story. The missing bits can be found on Turns Into Stone, originally released in 1992 and scooping up early singles and B-sides that didn't appear on the debut album. The album's provenance speaks nothing of it's quality: here can be found some of the greatest songs the four-piece ever recorded, from their poppets single, "Elephant Stone," to the towering "One Love" and the anthemic "Fools Gold," the track on which their hybrid of atmospheric indie and acid house found it's most perfect balance. Quite why The Stone Roses chose not to put these songs on an album is a mystery, but Turns Into Stone itself was controversial at the time. In a protracted battle with record label Silvertone, the band were unable to release any new material for several years due to an injunction against them, and Turns Into Stone was released without input from the band-unlike the majority of their releases, it boasts no cover art from the guitarist, painter and sculptor John Squire.
