You can not mention the Brit pop era without mentioning (What’s the Story) Morning Glory or some other classic Oasis song. We dare you to try it, I promise you can’t.
Back in October of 1995, Oasis released (What’s the Story) Morning Glory their second studio album. This album pushed the band from being just a typical English band to become a world-wide music phenomenon. The album sold 347, 000 copies in the first week and spent 10 weeks at number one in the U.K. album charts.
It is included on several album lists of one of the must have albums. It is also a rare find on vinyl and if it is available, it’s out of most people’s price range.
On September 30th, vinyl lovers like the GATRS will head to our local vinyl shop, or anxiously be watching our post box, as the reissue of (What’s the Story) Morning Glory hits the shelves.
The reissue of WTSMG will be packed with bonus material, including unheard demos of She’s Electric and Rockin Chair.
Also included are a number of B-sides and unreleased tracks as well as live recordings from memorable shows of that era.
So to get us through while we wait, here are the GATRS 5 best of… Oasis.
