(What’s the story) Morning Glory is the second and most successful album released by Oasis. It features highlight songs of the Bands career including “Wonderwall” and “Don’t look back in anger”. With a different approach to their previous album Definitely Maybe, the emphasis is now placed on huge chorus’ and balladry styles. Oasis booked Monnow Valley Studio near Rockfield in late 1993 to record the album and worked with producer Dave Batchelor, whom band member Noel Gallagher knew from his days working as a roadie for the Inspiral Carpets though sessions were unsatisfactory and Batchelor was subsequently fired. The album went on to sell over 8 million copies worldwide and brought widespread critical acclaim, being one of the main musical forces to catapult the Brit pop scene in the 1990's, and has appeared in many publications' lists of the greatest albums of all time. To commemorate this classic album and the distinct photography of Michael Spencer, the book signing we all have been waiting for is finally happening...
