About this deal

The band's most well-known lineup consisted of vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and drummer Reni. This is the first time this new configuration has ever been released in six unique colour variants on heavy weight 180g Vinyl.

Side B of this release uses the original cut, but side A is new as indicated by the job number 162899E.

The inclusion of the extras on vinyl is a killer bonus - having slowly collected some of the original 12-inch singles over the years (after foolishly neglecting them upon original release! As the years have gone by I have noticed more and more just how fantastic the mastering is on the LP. John Squire artprints taken from the 6 singles: I Wanna Be Adored / She Bangs The Drums / Elephant Stone / Fools Gold / One Love / I Am The Resurrection. However, the little ring nub on the lemon USB does come off easily: it's the only way to gently pull the inner part of the USB out of the lemon shape, and it's a very small piece.

I've only dabbled with the CDs and the USB; nice to have for sure, but for me it all comes second to the INCREDIBLE LP pressings. NO Elephant Stone 7", NO Full Fathom Five (CD single mix), NO I Wanna Be Adored (Edit), NO Fools Gold 4.
