(What's The Story) Morning Glory? - 25th Anniversary Silver Vinyl Edition

    With October 2nd, 2020 marking 25 years since Oasis released their iconic second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?, Big Brother Recordings release a limited edition silver coloured LP with remastered audio to celebrate this milestone.

    Following only 14 months after Oasis’s classic 1994 album Definitely Maybe, widely regarded one of the greatest debuts of all time, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory is the UK’s 5th bestselling album of all time and best-selling album of the nineties. The album entered the UK Official Charts at No.1 with 269,000 sales, with a total of 10 weeks at the summit since release and almost eight and a half years in the UK Official Album Chart cumulatively.

    Worldwide, it went Top 10 in every major market in the world and became the band’s breakthrough album in the US, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with over 5 million sales, and a global total now in excess of 22 million.

    Produced by Noel Gallagher and Owen Morris, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? was recorded at the fabled Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales, completed in a staggeringly brief two-week period during May and June 1995.

    An undeniably superlative rock record, it includes several of Oasis’ biggest selling UK singles – the legendary, universally loved anthem ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, ‘Roll With It’, ‘Some Might Say’ together with tracks like ‘She’s Electric’, ‘Morning Glory’ and ‘Champagne Supernova’, which are timeless anthems and radio staples known to every generation of music fan.

    (What’s The Story) Morning Glory established Oasis as a national and international phenomenon, the most universally popular British guitar band since the glory days of The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, and the album’s enduring and omnipresent appeal was demonstrated when it was awarded Best British Album of 30 Years at The BRIT Awards 2010. In the years since it’s release, the album has inspired thousands of young guns to pick up guitars and form bands, and is counted by dozens of successful bands and songwriters as a major influence on their careers.

    Don't Believe The Truth

      Don't Believe The Truth was the sixth Oasis studio album - their first since the number one multi-million selling Heathen Chemistry, released in 2002. It includes the single "Lyla". Noel Gallagher describes the track as "the Soundtrack of our Lives doing The Who on Skol in a psychedelic city in the sky (or something!)"

      STAFF COMMENTS

      says: I thought I'd gaffaw at this slew of Oasis represses but having scanned the tracklists and relived the glories through the week, I'm still 100% behind brothers G. 20 years later and we're still buzzin' to one of MCR's greatest ever bands.

      Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants

        Standing on the Shoulder of Giants was the fourth studio album by the Britpop band, originally released in 2000. It is the 16th fastest selling album in UK chart history, selling over 310,000 copies in it's first week. Standing on the Shoulder of Giants has been certified double platinum by the British Phonographic Industry and has sold around 208,000 copies in the US.

        The album is an effective modern psychedelic record complete with drum loops, samples, electric sitar, mellotron, synthesizers and backward guitars, resulting in an album more experimental with electronica and heavy psychedelic rock influences. Songs such as "Go Let It Out", the Indian-influenced "Who Feels Love?", and the progressive "Gas Panic!" were a departure from the band's earlier style.

            The Masterplan

              "The Masterplan" is a selection of Oasis B-Sides that never made it to an official studio album. Initially only intended for release in Japan and US, it was given a full UK releas on November 2nd 1998 and reached #4 in the Official UK top 40 album chart and #2 globally, showing the global popularity of the band at the very height of the Britpop era. It contains the massive, "Fade Away", the Royle Family-endorrsed "Half The World Away"  and the epic Beatles cover, "I Am The Walrus", amongst many other hits-not-hits from one of the UK's most monumental bands.

              STAFF COMMENTS

              says: It says so much about Oasis's imperial early phase that this compilation of b-sides would actually weigh in as their third best album, after, of course, the double whammy of their first two. Everything they released in those first few years was absolutely brilliant, and here's the proof!

              "Dig Out Your Soul" sees Dave Sardy return to the producer's chair following his work on Oasis' 2005 album, "Don't Believe The Truth". Recorded at Abbey Road and mixed in Los Angeles, all four members once again contribute tracks but the recording marks a new approach for the band as described by the band's principle songwriter, Noel Gallagher: 'I wanted to write music that had a groove; not songs that followed that traditional pattern of verse, chorus and middle eight. I wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. Songs that would draw you in, in a different way. Songs that you would maybe have to connect to - to feel.'
