This 3-disc Deluxe Edition includes a bonus CD featuring demos and alternate versions from the recording of the album, plus a 30-minute short film featuring promo clips and previously unseen home-movie footage. This album has class and it sees Paul Weller once again firmly in control of every aspect: he wrote all the songs bar a cover of Dr. John's "I Walk on Gilded Splinters"; he co-produced it and, apart from his earthy vocals, he plays guitar, piano, organ and percussion. All the tracks are special, but it's the three hits--"Changingman", "Broken Stones" and the truly wonderful "You Do Something To Me"--that really stand out, as does "Porcelain Gods", which has something of the old Style Council about it. Soulful, the style is underlined by Carleen Anderson's rich backing vocals on five of the tracks. Weller is also joined by some of his other musical chums: Noel Gallagher, Steve Craddock and Steve Winwood. On the bonus DVD: "Broke 'n' Stoned: Stanley Road Revisited" reunites the album's original cast to reflect on its making. It also features new interviews with Weller and his band, Peter Blake (who designed the sleeve - seen here in its first original form), Noel Gallagher (who guests on the album) and producer Brendan Lynch. The 30-minute film also includes promo clips and previously unseen 'home movie' footage.

CD Description
Named after a street in Weller's home-town of Woking in Surrey, this album was greeted with universal approval by critics and fans. The brilliant Peter Blake collage throughout the package portrays much greater nostalgia than is contained in the lyrics. The family snapshots and the Green Line picture serve only to fool the listener. The title track is clearly about the terraced houses that have now given way to 90s starter apartments, but the more personal content of tracks such as 'You Do Something To Me' is where Weller truly bareshis soul. It would strongly appear that before recording this album, Weller listened to many Traffic albums.

great album in its own right but at this price the deluxe version is brilliant a must buy for any fan

As said, an absolute stonker of an album to start with... Throw the rest in and what a cracking way to become £8-32 lighter.

I'll order this for our kid's birthday but I'm not 100% sure he'll ever get it!
