The Stone Roses - Fools Gold

04:16

"The gold road's sure a long road / Winds on through the hills for fifteen days."

A one-off single from November 1989 (backed with What The World Is Waiting For), the full 9.53 version is one of the key "Madchester" tracks. 

Based on James Brown’s Funky Drummer shuffle-beat, it features an incredible performance from Reni on drums and John Squire’s free-form wah-wah guitar solo. 

Mani’s nimble bassline holds the whole thing together perfectly.
