OASIS – Their 25th Anniversary Of B-Sides Sounding Like A-Sides Album ‘THE MASTERPLAN’ Is Out Now

7 November 2023

The five-star B-sides album THE MASTERPLAN by OASIS, turned 25 last Friday.

For the occasion, an anniversary reissue is out now. It features remastered
audio and is available now on limited 2LP silver-coloured vinyl, 2LP black vinyl
and an Oasis Shop exclusive 2LP green/black marbled coloured vinyl. There’s
also a standard CD version available.

TUTV: At least half of the songs (Acquiesce / Talk Tonight / Fade Away / The Swamp Song /
The Masterplan / Half The World Away / (It’s Good) To Be Free
) had A-side quality – as Noel used to say “I don’t write B-sides, I only write A-ones” – and shouldn’t have been released as B-sides, but put aside for their 3rd LP with the 3 best songs (D’You What I Mean / Stand By Me / All Around The World) of the official 3rd longplayer Be Here Now, mostly fucked up because of too many drugs and 24-hour parties.

Acquiesce Live at Knebworth, 1996
