Album Notes
Personnel: Paul Weller (vocals, guitar, piano, Hammond B-3 organ, organ, Wurlitzer piano, Novatron, percussion); Carleen Anderson (vocals); Steve Cradock (acoustic & electric guitars, background vocals); Noel Gallagher (acoustic guitar); David Liddle (acoustic slide guitar);; Joy Hawley (cello); Brendan Lynch (accordion, Mini-Moog synthesizer, tambourine, finger cymbals, cyremin); Steve Winwood (keyboards); Helen Turner (Hammond B-3 organ, organ, Novatron); Mick Talbot (electric piano, organ); Dr. Robert (bass, background vocals); Mark Nelson, Yolanda Charles (bass); Steve White (drums, percussion); Constantine Wier (background vocals).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 bares his soul. It would strongly appear that before recording this album, Weller listened to many Traffic albums.

I've liked Paul Weller for some time, having mainly admired from afar; just listening to and appreciating his music when friends played it. Having recently seen him in concert, I decided to just equip myself with his entire back catalogue.

A friend of mine who is a long time fan recommended Wild Wood to me as Weller's best album, more so than Stanley Road, which I shall also review shortly, and which he feels is overrated. Both are really great albums but I have to agree that this is Weller's finest release.

There were no tracks I had trouble getting into, and there were none I wanted to skip over. The instrumentals are lively and delivered with real heart and soul and gusto. It was easy to relax on the sofa listening to this, and also to have it on as background music although I much prefer giving it my undivided attention as I feel it deserves it.

I'd strongly recommend you buy this deluxe edition because the demos are a great raw, gritty take and a fascinating insight into the creative process. I also like remixes as included herein for a different take on songs you already know in their original context. This edition, as if it couldn't offer more, also has some previously unreleased material and some exclusive BBC recordings.

This album overall, to me, reminds me of a rockier, slightly cooler Jools Holland (don't get me wrong, I adore Jools Holland too); it's just so funky and upbeat, with some really solid lyrics in there. It's easy to sing along to and can create a great atmosphere in a room.

A fantastic album by one of the greatest song writers ,Paul weller has outdone him self this time with a fresh , strong and mature writing feel to the songs this album I brought this cd when it came out in 1995 if I remember rightly but lost it so decided to buy it again after hearing one of the songs on the radio recently and could not believe they sound as good today as they did back then ,an ageless album every music lover should own .5 star treatment to you ears .....

Paul Weller - Stanley Road (CD 1995)

Created: 25/03/07
The Music OF PAUL WELLER IS SO UNDER-ESTIMATED, this album brings out his shear harmonics an incredible album, the timing and the extention of acoustic control on the guitar is immense, maybe his voice is that not of a mid-stream singer but the voice is superb on this, give this album a go at least, this is one of my favourites, as a bit of trivia he played on peter gabriel melt album, just for the music buffs out there.

Instrumental, voice, cool, sound a must 5/5.
