(Legacy Recordings) On September 8, 2009, twenty years from the moment when four Manchester musicians stepped onto the stage of the Blackpool Empress Ballroom for what would become a legendary gig, Silvertone/Legacy is set to re-release the classic album that is The Stone Roses in 4 new formats.

Over two decades, the impact of the band's debut album has increased exponentially, inspiring musicians to form bands, marking a re-engagement of guitar music with the mainstream, and creating a youth culture that retains its influence across music, fashion, politics and art to this day.

THE STONE ROSES: COLLECTOR'S EDITION of this landmark album features a fully remastered version of the UK album by original producer John Leckie and Ian Brown, alongside a host of bonus discs, unseen footage, additional tracks and interviews with high profile Roses fans. The full DVD of that legendary Blackpool Empress Ballroom show is included while Disc 2 delivers a complete set of remastered B-sides and non-album A-sides for the band's Silvertone singles, including such favorites as 'Mersey Paradise', 'Elephant Stone', 'Fools Gold', 'What The World Is Waiting For' and 'One Love'. A third CD features 'The Lost Demos', a previously unheard and much sought after selection of early recordings of the album tracks, B-side single tracks, plus the never before heard track 'Pearl Bastard'. Three heavyweight vinyl LPs also collate the material across 6 sides. Further unheard and unseen material comes in the form of five backwards tracks and John Leckie's personal home movie 'Up at Sawmills: The Making of Fools Gold', which are contained on a Lemon shaped USB - in homage to the album's iconic sleeve art. The DVD in this collection features the legendary Blackpool gig plus all 6 of the promotional videos made during this period.

A 48-page book within the Collector's Edition features a host of unseen images and brand new interviews with the band, plus a poem and sketch by Reni exclusively for the collection, as well as interviews with super producer John Leckie and high profile fans Noel Gallagher, Peter Hook, Mark Ronson, Glasvegas and many others. This remarkable Collector's Edition also includes 6 John Squire 12" card art prints for the tracks 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'She Bangs The Drums', 'Elephant Stone', 'Fools Gold', 'One Love' and 'I Am The Resurrection'.

Here is the full content for the various formats:
