Paul Weller - Stanley Road
Weller’s landmark, multi-platinum selling No. 1 album which stayed 87 weeks in the chart. It spawned the classic hits The Changing Man, You Do Something To Me and Broken Stones. Stanley Road is the third album by Paul Weller originally released by Go! Discs in 1995. The album's cover collage was created by the artist Peter Blake, designer of the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's album artwork. Weller claimed on a BBC special that he hopes he can one day create an album as perfect as this one, stating that all the stars were aligned during the writing and recording period of Stanley Road. The album had several notable contributors such as Noel Gallagher of Oasis, who appears playing acoustic guitar on I Walk on Gilded Splinters, Steve Winwood (formerly of the Spencer Davis Group amongst others) performs on the songs Woodcutters Son and Pink on White Walls, whilst Weller is also joined by long-time collaborators Steve Craddock (co-founder of Ocean Colour Scene) and Steve White (the Style Council and brother of Alan white the former Oasis stick man).
