In its original incarnation, Stone Temple Plots was a hastily conceived response to the Stone Temple Pilots album Tiny Music. As an album, it was decidedly imperfect, with a bit of a split personality—the three tracks on offer here followed by various permutations of noise.
Since most of those other tracks are available elsewhere in this reissue series, they have been omitted from this edition, which is now an EP.
