A breakout success, the album peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts, dominated radio waves with hits like Sex Type Thing and Wicked Garden, and has been certified 8x Platinum. The band also took home the 1994 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their smash single Plush. To mark the legendary album’s silver anniversary, Stone Temple Pilots release a new Edition on September 29th, which is 25 years to the day of the album’s original debut. The first disc features a newly remastered version of the original album. Nearly all of the music on the second disc of both versions is making its commercial debut. Of the nine demos included, four were recorded between 1987 and 1990 when the band was known as Mighty Joe Young. One of those, Only Dying, is an unheard song the band had planned to re-record in 1994 for The Crow Soundtrack. The idea was later scrapped after the star of the film, Brandon Lee, was killed during production. The disc continues with five unreleased demos from their original Atlantic sessions and concludes with four b-sides, including the jazzy Swing Type Version of Sex Type Thing, as well as two acoustic versions of Plush' - the 'Acoustic Type Version” recorded with the full band and the rarely heard “first take” that was recorded by Weiland and Dean DeLeo for MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball in 1993. The third disc contains two fiery live recordings from the summer of 1993, the first an unreleased performance at Castaic Lake Natural Amphitheater near Los Angeles and the second from the Reading Festival, making its U.S. debut here. These high-energy shows feature performances of all but two songs from Core as well as an early live version of Lounge Fly, a song the band has just written a month earlier that would appear the following year on the band’s second album Purple. The band’s iconic appearance on MTV Unplugged, recorded in November 1993, gets its first official release on the final CD in the set. This would be their last performance in support of Core and includes reworked, acoustic versions of Wicked Garden and Sex Type Thing, the debut performance of Big Empty, which would later appear on Purple, and a cover of David Bowie’s Andy Warhol.
