Requested on Supernova Heights, this is a free EP which was released via Noel Gallagher's website to promote the joint US tour he and Snow Patrol performed along with Jake Bugg in support. The Noel track is Everybody's On The Run from the O2 which was also released on the DVD / BLU-Ray International Magic : Live at The O2. One for the collectors I think!

Morning Glory next month. Originally recorded back in 1993 with long time producer and friend of the band Mark Coyle at his home studio in Manchester.

The Cage



Format : 5" CD
Country : UK
Year : 2002
Record Label : Big Brother Recordings
Cat# : RKIDCD25

01 : The Cage

Download : FLAC | mp3

Half an hour or so after Better Man is finished The Cage comes on the stereo.... Is it worth the wait? Personally, yes. It is a cool laid back instrumental written by Noel and is a nice little bonus track to have. The song was also released on an NME free CD in 2003 which you can view or buy on Discogs here. Allegedly Paul Weller provides the additional haunting backing vocals although I've never heard or read this confirmed by either Noel or Weller.

A very rare promo CD issued to TV and Radio stations to use as promotion for the Best Of album Stop The Clocks. The CD contains a number of very rare instrumentals including The Masterplan and Go Let It Out. The Definitely Maybe era songs are mainly taken from the Safety Copy of Masters 4 CD set. Some Might say still contains some of Noel's backing vocals but is good for the collection. Originally uploaded back in 2006 by Ethan who runs (the now returned) Oasis Collectors site.

Rhapsody Originals (Exclusive EP)



Format : Digital Download
Country : US
Year : 2006
Record Label : Sony Music BMG UK
Cat# : N/A
Original Uploader : Schorman

01 : Talk Tonight
02 : The Importance of Being Idle
03 : Wonderwall
04 : Married With Children

Download : Rhapsody Originals (Exclusive EP)

I read someone requesting this on either Live4ever or Supernova heights, I can't remember which, so thought I'd get a new working link sorted out for the site. This was an exclusive EP recorded for Rhapsody Originals back in 2006 in promotion of the Best Of collection Stop the Clocks. Noel performs three "common" tunes but finishes the set of with a cracking wee version of Married With Children and although nothing beats the album version this is one of my favourite takes of the song. Originally shared by Scott many moons ago, the thanks are all still his to this day.

The Evening Session, Maida Vale Studios 17th January 2000



Format : 5" CD
Country : UK
Year : 2000
Record Label : N/A
Cat# : N/A
Original Ripper : Bryan

01 : Rock 'n' Roll Star
02 : Who Feels Love?
03 : Sunday Morning Call
04 : Talk Tonight
05 : My Generation

Download : FLAC | mp3

Possibly one of the best radio sessions Oasis ever performed. Recorded over two days at the famous BBC Maida Vale Studios in London and broadcast over a series of nights in promotion for the new album Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants. Boasting new members Andy Bell and Gem Archer the band perform an amazing version of Rock 'n' Roll Star and a public vote winning version of The Who's My Generation which they went on to make their own during following tours. Two tracks from Giant's are giving an airing and also a completely reworked electric version of the classic b-side Talk Tonight. Thanks to Bryan for the original upload. I've removed the DJ talk from the mp3 version but the FLAC version is as originally ripped. The artwork is by me.

Rock 'n' Roll Star (BBC Radio 1 Session Promo)



Format : 5" CD
Country : US
Year : 2000
Record Label : Epic
Cat# : N/A
Original Ripper / Uploader : Schorman / Rob

01 : Rock 'n' Roll Star (BBC Maida Vale Session, 17th January 2000)

Download : Epic. Fast. Forward.

Scott's original post on Live4ever : "I actually found another new Live Track! I really thought I had them all. This one is from an Epic Records promotional press release pack/booklet, called "Epic. Fast. Forward." The tracklist on the disc says it was supposed to have a live version of Don't Look Back In Anger from Familiar To Millions, but when I ripped the disc, it turned out to be Rock 'n' Roll Star from the Maida Vale sessions on Jan. 17, 2000."

Thanks to Rob for sending me the FLAC and Asimarx for the mp3 version after I realised I missed out on this track when Scott had originally shared the track. The artwork is by Ian Menezes. The song is free of any DJ talking and excellent quality.

Morning Glory (Acoustic)



Format : 5" CD
Country : US
Year : 1997
Record Label : Wicked Disc
Cat# : WIC 1008-2

01 : Morning Glory (Acoustic)

Download : Morning Glory (Acoustic)

I'm not really a big fan of Noel singing certain songs which Liam basically made his own, for example Wonderwall and Supersonic. However he does pull off Slide Away quite well, although nothing beats the original! I do like this version of Morning Glory, I guess it has a "demo" feel about it so that could be the reason I suppose. Anyway enough of my nonsense. Noel singing Morning Glory acoustic from the Orpheum Theater in Boston back in October 1995. The track was released on a compilation album "WBCN Naked Disc: A Collection Of Unreleased Performances" back in 1997. Enjoy.
