The Dying of the Light (Acoustic for RTÉ 2fm)

Format : Youtube Audio (mp3)
Country : Ireland
Year : 2015
Record Label : N/A
Cat# : N/A

01 : The Dying of the Light (Acoustic)

Download : The Dying of the Light (Acoustic for RTÉ 2fm)

Exclusively recorded for the Irish radio station RTÉ 2fm. Noel performs an absolutely amazing acoustic version of the Chasing Yesterday album track, The Dying of the Light with Mike Rowe on piano. It is very similar to the demo version with all the raw emotion intact. Hopefully Noel performs this and other High Flying Birds songs in this style at an acoustic show sometime in the near future.

Ballad Of The Mighty I (7" Vinyl)

Format : 7" Vinyl (Pink Edition)
Country : UK
Year : 2015
Record Label : Sour Mash
Cat# : JDNC20
Original Uploader : Kennerado

A1 : Ballad Of The Mighty I
B1 : Revolution Song

Download : FLAC | mp3

Thanks to Kennerado for taking the time to rip and upload a lossless version of the current Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds single, Ballad Of The Mighty I. The single was released on two vinyls, a standard black and also a limited edition pink glitter vinyl. The rip comes from the pink one. The b-side, Revolution Song, should be well known amongst Oasis fans as the demo has been doing the rounds since early 2000 as part of the Standing On The Shoulder of Giants sessions. It has been slightly reworked, it has however lost the guitar solo which is a shame but personally I'm glad it has been finally taken out of the vaults.

I'll leave it to our friend "The Wrong Beach" to describe this collection of rarities from the first High Flying Birds tour. Thanks to him for taking the time to compile and edit the songs and also to the original tapers/uploaders.

"In anticipation of the new tour, I've been revisiting the live shows for the previous album. It struck me that a number of tracks were played live, but not included in the official DVD. Also, a number of tracks were in relatively poor quality, so I've attempted to upgrade them by combining multiple sources (known as a 'matrix' recording)."

The Dying Of The Light (Demo) (10" Vinyl)

Format : 10" Vinyl
Country : UK
Year : 2015
Record Label : Sour Mash
Cat# : JDNC21TE
Original Uploader : Shakespeare's Sister | RobD

01 : The Dying Of The Light (Demo)

Download : Shakespeare's Sister Source | RobD Source

Demo version of The Dying Of The Light which has been released on an exclusive 10" numbered vinyl only available in HMV stores in the UK. The demo is similar in style to the acoustic soundcheck recording we have all heard after the song was uploaded a couple of years ago now. Noel's vocals are quite raw and emotional and the piano / mellotron adds to the atmosphere really well.

Thanks go to both Shakespeare's Sister for taking the time to rip and upload his vinyl to share with us all and also to RobD for his upgraded rip. Both a lossless version and 320kbps mp3 are in the downloads and tagged and with artwork.

01 : Ballad Of The Mighty I (Instrumental)

Download : FLAC | mp3

Another huge thanks to Pedro Kisuco who has very generously shared the instrumental version the current Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds single Ballad Of The Mighty I. As I've said before I love instrumentals as you get to hear bits and pieces you miss out on when listening to the album / single versions. You can really appreciate Johnny Marr's contribution more when listening to this instrumental. It makes me want a dark remix of this song even more. **EDIT** Now updated with a FLAC version, thanks to a long term fan of the site, you know who you are!

Don't Believe The Truth (Album Édition Limitée)

Format : 5" CD
Country : France
Year : 2006
Record Label : Epic
Cat# : 82876 87342 2
Original Uploader : Bastien

01 : Pass Me Down The Wine
02 : Sittin' Here In Silence
03 : The Quiet Ones
04 : Let There Be Love (Demo Version)
05 : Eyeball Tickler
06 : Won't Let You Down

Download : FLAC | mp3

I would like to say a huge thanks to Bastien who has very kindly shared the bonus disc in FLAC today after I made my request.

This bonus CD which was released in France back in 2006 as a promo / bonus CD alongside the standard album and contains the b-sides to the Don't Believe The Truth singles. This seems to be the only commercial CD source of the Let There Be Love Demo which makes it very rare and after listening to the track it is also "skip" free unlike the digital and DVD single versions which have been circulating since it's release back in 2005. For reference check around 2 minutes 30 seconds or so on your original file and you will hear clicking noise but on the version included in this download it is clean.
