Ian Brown Golden Greats on Limited Edition Colored 180g Import Vinyl 2LP
Second Solo Studio Effort from Stone Roses Frontman w/ Bonus Tracks & Etching
The Stone Roses story is part of legend now, but when the band fell apart Ian Brown dropped out of sight and returned to the simple life. Left with just a small terraced house from one of the great stories of the period - from a band that could have been as big as the Beatles - most ‘experts' reckoned that it was all over for the singer.
But they were forgetting that for a big chunk of a generation he was an iconic brooding presence with the generational aura of a Strummer or a Lydon, whose natural charisma was already being tapped into by Liam Gallagher and a whole host of new generation who were copping the walk, the style and the attitude of the loose limbed frontman.
When Aziz Ibrahim knocked on Ian's door and got him to record again he opened up a whole new chapter. 1998's Unfinished Monkey Business was a hit, and it kick-started a series of solo albums which saw Brown strike out in his own direction. 1999 saw Brown quickly return with the equally as compelling follow-up Golden Greats, a sprawling affair chock full of stylized neo-psychedelia and dance rhythms which NME hailed as "a left-field masterpiece and Brown's best work for a decade."
