Stone Temple Pilots 25th anniversary edition of 'Core'.
Stone Temple Pilots roared on to the scene 25 years ago with their raucous debut 'Core.' A breakout success, the album peaked at #3 on the Billboard charts, dominated radio waves with hits like "Sex Type Thing" and "Wicked Garden," and has been certified 8x Platinum by the RIAA. The band also took home the 1994 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their smash single "Plush."
To mark the legendary album's silver anniversary, Rhino have released this reissue 25 years to the day of the album's original debut.
The 2CD 'Core (Deluxe Edition)' containing a newly remastered version of the original album expanded with rare b-sides and previously unreleased demos.
Stone Temple Pilots (guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz, and vocalist Scott Weiland) debuted with Core in the fall of 1992 and by the following summer were one of the biggest rock bands on the scene, powered by exhilarating live shows and a string of now-classic songs from the album, remastered here for the very first time.
Nearly all of the music on the second disc of both versions is making its commercial debut. Of the nine demos included, four were recorded between 1987 and 1990 when the band was known as Mighty Joe Young. One of those, "Only Dying," is an unheard song the band had planned to re-record in 1994 for The Crow Soundtrack.
25th anniversary super deluxe edition contains 4 CDs, 1 DVD, 180-gram vinyl.
Limited edition original album newly-remastered plus unreleased demos, B-sides, live and acoustic performances. DVD includes 5.1 surround sound mix.
