Oasis: (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (Chasing the Sun edition)

Let me guess: You’ve got this already, right?

So why buy it again, even in extra-deluxe-remastered-super-duper  three-cd format? Well, putting to one side the improvement in sound, it’s worth reminding ourselves quite how good a songwriter Noel Gallagher was during 1995-6.

Aside from the world-dominating album itself, the b-sides from Morning Glory’s singles – which make up disc 2 – are jaw-dropping. Many bands would have made Acquiesce, Talk Tonight and others the centrepiece of their next record. Disc three’s live tracks re-emphasise that when Oasis were on form, there was no-one to touch them. They would never scale such heights again.
