Album of the Day
Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop (25th Anniversary Edition)
Stone Temple Pilots embraced experimentation and open-mindedness to make their third album, 1996’s TINY MUSIC ... SONGS FROM THE VATICAN GIFT SHOP. It was recorded with longtime producer Brendan O’Brien at a home studio in California’s Santa Ynez Valley and the 25,000-square-foot house became a muse for STP, who recorded in different rooms – from the attic to the garden – to explore new sounds. The Atlantic collection is a pitch-perfect amalgamation of the band members’ musical personalities, yielding three #1 hits - “Big Bang Baby,” “Lady Picture Show” and “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart.” Just in time for the album’s 25th anniversary, the new 3-CD/1-LP TINY MUSIC … SONGS FROM THE VATICAN GIFT SHOP: SUPER DELUXE EDITION includes a disc of early versions, instrumental and alternate mixes of album tracks plus a previously unreleased 1997 concert from Panama City Beach, Florida.
