To celebrate the twentieth year since the release of their debut album, Oasis are re-releasing their first three studio albums over the course of 2014. All three albums have been meticulously remastered and released in chronological order, with a carefully-selected collection of rarities and additional tracks taken from Oasis label Big Brother Recordings and the band’s own archives.
This is the 2 disc vinyl edition.

However, the sound quality on this new 2014 double album re-master is not a patch on the original CD version.
The definition has been compressed almost out of existence.
It's a great pity that increasingly vinyl re-masters and a number of new releases for that matter, are being produced from highly compressed, bass heavy files.
Just avoid the super deluxe set at all costs.
First the good: Product was delivered on time. Packaging was excellent. Presentation in a gatefold cover was beautiful. The album was split across two discs, and included "Sad Song" which was not on the original CDs. The 180g vinyl was beautifully presented and and the white record sleeves have a grease-proof internal lining.
Now the bad: ( And sadly this is really the only thing that really matters.) The sound quality of this recording is dreadful. Muddy, poorly separated, the mix is horrible with the vocals, hand-claps and suchlike lost somewhere in the mire. If this is a "remastering", then whoever was at the controls should be hounded out of the industry. I know for a fact that my home hifi set-up is pretty good, but nevertheless I immediately played a couple of other records to double check nothing was awry. I also played Definitely Maybe on CD through the same amp and speakers, cross-reference the two formats. The trouble with a good "true" set-up is that whilst it rewards excellence, it also exposes mediocrity. Definitely Maybe is one of y favourite albums of all time, but this vinyl release is bordering on a travesty. Very sad. Very disappointing.
