25th Anniversary Of Oasis’ Landmark Album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?
by Geoff Ford
2nd October marks 25 years since Oasis released their iconic second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and Big Brother Recordings have released new limited edition album formats.
(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? is now available on a double silver coloured LP and picture disc on heavyweight vinyl, with remastered audio. Vinyl editions from the official Oasis online store will also include a replica of Noel Gallagher’s handwritten lyrics for Wonderwall.
(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? Established Manchester’s Oasis as a national and international phenomenon and includes several of Oasis’ biggest selling UK singles – the universally loved anthem Wonderwall, Don’t Look Back In Anger, Roll With It, and Some Might Say together with classic tracks She’s Electric, Morning Glory and Champagne Supernova which are timeless anthems and radio staples known to every generation of music fan. In the years since its release, the album has inspired thousands and is counted by dozens of successful bands and songwriters as a major influence on their careers.
In an exclusive new documentary Return To Rockfield, Noel Gallagher revisits the legendary studios in Wales where the album was recorded during May and June 1995, offering fresh insights and his perspective on the album’s ongoing legacy. On the journey to the studio, Noel listened to the album for the first time in 25 years to try to make sense of why (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? continues to resonate so profoundly with Oasis fans old and new.
“I understood it today,” he said. “You know, the words, the melodies. Liam’s voice is on another level on that record. Because there’s nothing around today that even remotely comes near to it.”
At 6pm BST this evening (Friday 2nd October), YouTube Premiere will host an Official Album Playback and Singalong event, including new official HD videos with remastered audio.
Fans are invited to join the celebration and recreate October 1995 at home, sharing their pictures and videos using #SomeMightSing and #MorningGlory25, with contributions being shared via Oasis’ social media channels.
