25 YEARS SINCE THE RELEASE OF STP'S "PURPLE"

In 1994 I was 8 years old, not quite old enough to remember the release of “Purple”  But, still i remember checking it out from the library several years later and being awed by the songs that weren’t played on the radio. I remember playing this album so often that it was some of my top played songs on Itunes.

Here is the real news tho! It’s been 25 years since the release  of that album and STP is releasing a remastered version. As per STP’s website  you can grab the dope deluxe re-issue for 64.90 on September 13th!

So here’s a taste of the yum that is coming out of this release 

The amount of other unreleased rarities looks amazing!
