371 – The Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection (1989/1992)
Written by Ian Brown and John Squire
Produced by John Leckie
Label – Silvertone
“I Am The Resurrection” could have made it into the top 500 as a superb 60s styled 4 minute pop single, but the inspired instrumental outro makes it easy to pass on even more superlatives. One often forgets what good musicians The Stone Roses were and the final four minutes is a testament to John Squire’s nimble lead guitar, Mani’s lean bass line and Reni’s rhythmical versatility. It’s a fitting climax to one of the great debut albums of all time.
