Oasis - The Singles Collection 3 Discs
What is there to be said about the mighty Oasis? I first saw them in concert in 1994 and they were great even then but no one could have envisioned them becoming as large as they did. Although I can't say much for the music (having not given it a concentrated listening since (What's The Story) Morning Glory? It is irrefutable though that they are great singles artists and don't just have a good side 'A' but put some work into the 'B' sides as well. A careful look and listen will show to anyone that some of their best work has been hidden on the flipside of records. I have an immense amount of respect for Noel Gallagher and the wonderful music he has crafted and, conversely, very little for Liam who has lucked into the life of a rock star. I have been unfortunate enough to hear live shows and see dvd's of the occasions when Liam just didn't feel like being there and whined his voice through an entire show. And the crowd still eats it up! Just weird I tell you. I have broken these down into 3 parts for easier downloading. The first box is, to me equal to any legendary groups recorded output for a career as far as quality goes. From there on out - you decide for yourselves.
