OASIS - 1996 Loch Lomond, Scotland. [Boot] NEWLINKS!

I'm not sure about where I stand on Oasis these days. I think it has to be said that they are a mere shadow of their former selves. Their recent album is a bit lame to say the least but I'm sure I will still play it sometimes. The album I give you today is from the best period of their musical career as far as I am concerned. Just before their Knebworth gigs.
I was one of the sad fuckers who almost worshipped them back in the 90's. I know, they lack originality, they take riffs and chorus lines from other songs and turn them into their own without even attempting to disguise it, all of their songs sound pretty much the same and, you can play most of their songs back to back on guitar without changing the chord formation!
Yep. I know all that. And more.
However, they are talented. Liams voice is a very unique sound and I love it.

Liam Liam.
Noel, hmm.. his ability to create a tune that almost sings itself to you and won't leave your head is incredible. I think he could do with a personality transplant but he does know what he's doing. When he takes the riffs and melodies from other music and makes a song out of it, he does a really good job. No argument.


'Dont look Back in Anger'
with its Lennon Intro, it sounds perfect. They made it big on the back of quite a few 60's and 70's tunes but the songs they sing are truly their own. Oasis led the music scene in UK for a number of years(deliberately skipped over it) in the 90's when their second album 'What's the Story Morning Glory' went sky high, most people bought that album first and then went looking for their first album 'Definitely Maybe' which is undoubtedly their best.
I went to see them at Loch Lomond in 1996 and the show was just brilliant. The atmosphere was more than electric. Nuclear in fact. The crowd were singing every number. There was no trouble and yet we were in a field with thousands of scottish young lads, drunk and stoned. Yet no fighting? that, believe me, is a very unique thing in Scotland. I lived there all my life so I know.
There was more trouble in Glasgow, outside HMV in the queue for the tickets which lasted from 7pm before the shop opened at 9am the following day. I was there for the night and I got tickets. Everyone I knew tried phoning to ge theirs and, pity, they got nothing. In the queue there was fighting, near rioting when the nightclubs came out, police had to come around on horses. It was wild.
So here is that show for you. The gigs were on the Saturday and Sunday. I remember being a bit gutted that I was seeing the Saturday show as Ocean Colour Scene were supporting on Sunday and all I had to contend with on Saturday were shite like CAST and Manic street Tossers who I really think are piss poor.
The quality of this recording is excellent, it does swirl from left to right a bit but for an audience recording its good. Guess what: I urge you to download it.
More later.


You will have to delete any files you already downloaded as I have made these 6 rar files, not joined/split but each containing a few tracks. The previous links were of a split rar archive which you will not be able to continue with.

Some pretty nifty harmonica on the last track, makes you realise how Blues they can go.

Isn't life wonderful? (*sarc)

@matthew: Don't take it personally, we can still be friends. You should have been there, The Manics were pretty shitty.

F*ckin' awesome mate, mainly cos I was there.

I hate the Manics too JDB's voice, arrggghhhh! That, and all the songs are the same, just with different lyrics.

P.S. Anyone else think that the new Texas single Getaway completely rips off ABBA's Honey Honey?

Hmm that is a difficult request right now. I have major PC problems as ever. My 500gb hard drive seems to be on the verge of total failure and the problem is I haver so much stored on it. I am now trying to relocate loads of other stuff from my other hard drives so that I might copy the 500Gb to those. Then I'll have to remove the 500Gb one, return it hopefully and get a replacement. Problem being that I have my windows system on that very drive. So I am kind of all over the place with it just now. Having to delete stuff all over the place. I won't delete this show because I was there, I just won't be able to upload it like, today or very soon due to the mess of the situation right now.
One thing though - I promise I will let you know when it is reposted! I may make a new post of it on the main page after I fix this damn machine!
