Noel Gallagher Shares Abbey Road Versions Of Oasis Classics
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have released new versions of the classic Oasis songs Going Nowhere and The Masterplan recorded at London’s prestigious Abbey Road Studios. Watch below.
The Masterplan and Going Nowhere have become mainstays in Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ recent live sets to a rapturous response. The original recorded versions of both tracks appeared on the Oasis singles Wonderwall (The Masterplan) and Stand By Me (Going Nowhere). They were then compiled on Oasis’ B-sides album The Masterplan, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, re-entering the UK Official Albums Chart at No 2 in November.
