In their 14-year recording career Oasis sold over 70 million albums worldwide, had 22 consecutive UK Top 10 singles, 7 No.1 studio albums, but, more than that, they helped define a generation. Now Big Brother Recordings are to reissue the band’s classic albums in chronological order as part of the new Chasing The Sun series. Each album has been remastered and available with rare and exclusive bonus content.

With 2014 marking the 20th anniversary of its original release, Definitely Maybe will be the first release in the series, out 19th May. (What’s The Story?) Morning Glory and Be Here Now will follow later this year.

Definitely Maybe was originally released in August 1994 and was an immediate critical and commercial smash. The fastest selling debut album ever (at the time), it went seven-times platinum in the UK (over 2 million copies), and sold 5 million worldwide. Containing the classic debut single Supersonic, released April1994, and subsequent singles Shakermaker, Live Forever, and Cigarettes & Alcohol, Definitely Maybe frequently appears on ‘best album of all time’ polls, including a No.1 placing in a 2008 Q Magazine/HMV poll of the ‘Greatest British Albums’.

The deluxe 2 CD includes all the B-sides plus rare and unreleased Oasis tracks from the Definitely Maybe era, plus their huge Christmas single from 1994, Whatever. All editions come with new sleevenotes by respected rock critic Neil McCormick.

Highlights of the bonus content include
• Previously unheard live acoustic versions of Live Forever and Shakermaker from a Paris instore gig around the time of the release of Definitely Maybe
• Half The World Away (Live, Tokyo Hotel Room): an early and intimate version of this Oasis classic, recorded in Noel’s Gallagher’s hotel room in Toyko in 1994 by Mark Coyle
• Strange Thing (Demo) from the Original 1993 Demos cassette
• Sad Song (Live at Manchester Academy) a previously unheard recording
• Whatever (Strings): recorded on a portable cassette machine at Maison Rouge Studios by Mark Coyle
