One of the great bands of the ’90s’ Grunge movement was Stone Temple Pilots. Formed in 1986 with Scott Weiland as the singer (eventually replaced by the recently deceased Chester Bennington (RIP) of Linkin Park), the band released six albums. The debut, Core, was released in 1992 on Atlantic Records. Core is the band’s best-selling album to date with over fifteen million copies sold. The album produced four popular singles, with “Plush” being the most popular export from the album.

On September 29, Atlantic Records will reissue Core as a 25th Anniversary single CD, a 2CD Deluxe Edition, DD, and a massive Super Box with 4CD/DVD/LP to its heft. the original album is newly remastered for this reissue. Additionally, the sets will be peppered with a collection of B-sides, demos, live tracks, and even new versions of music (“Creep” finds itself redone here).

For the single CD, you get the original album remastered. The 2CD set provides a nice collection of fourteen bonus tracks. The Box offers the content of the 2CD set as well as a CD with live shows from two venues (Reading Festival – 08/27/93; Castaic Lake Amphitheatre – 07/02/93), and a CD of seven tracks from their 11/17/93 session of MTV Unplugged. The DVD offers the entire album mixed in 5.1 Surround, and 96kHz/24-bit Stereo. the DVD inclusion also offers four videos (“Plush”, “Sex Type Thing”, “Wicked”, “Creep”). The LP features the remastered version of Core in its entirety over two sides.

The 4CD/DVD/LP Super Deluxe 25th Anniversary Set will also provide a 12″x 12″-sized hardbound book filled with photos, credits, and notes. This edition will be limited to only 15,000 copies.
