The EP opens with Acquiesce which many Oasis fans always said should have been an A-side. A wonderful song featuring both Liam and Noel on vocals (Liam does the verses and Noel the chorus), it's always been a live favourite at the gigs I've been to.

Then a demo of Cigarettes and Alcohol which sounds very different from the finished version. For one thing, Liam's voice sounds...well, sweet. There's no other way to describe his singing and he actually pronounces 'sunshine' properly instead of snarling and twisting it like we're used to hearing in the final song.

Third is a live take of 'Some Might Say', again a great choice both of song and this particular version and wherever it was recorded, they introduce their then new drummer Alan White to the crowd at the end.

Finally, closing off the EP is probably the best song Noel's ever written and certainly in my opinion the best Oasis song there is: The Masterplan. Quite simply, it's a gorgeous song. Lyrically and musically perfect and rounds out the EP in considerable style.

This EP is a must for Oasis fans, even if you've got all their other releases, this is worth it to hear these classics again and to find out how Cigarettes and Alcohol *could* have sounded.

By the time the 'Stop the Clocks' compilation came out in 2006 I had all but given up on Oasis. I DID go out of my way to buy this little gem though.
Great as they are, I already had the early B-sides on this EP (I would recommend B-sides compilation, The Masterplan to those who are too young to have bought their early singles), but the other two tracks on this make a fine addition to their early material in their own right.
I was gratified to find the first CD release of 'Cigarettes And Alcohol' in its demo form. This first appeared on a giveaway cassette from the NME in early 1994 (if memory serves). It is a great antidote to the over-produced album version (and subsequent single). It makes greater play of the stolen T.Rex riff, which gets buried under a lead guitar drone on the finished track.
The live reading of 'Some Might Say', from a forgotten venue in 1995, is a powerful reminder of what was good about Oasis. Do not be put off that this is a cassette recording taken from the mixing desk. The sound is as punchy as the lead singer once was. Liam's endorsement, at the end, of their (then) new drummer is apposite, "...splendid!"
This is a must for those who remember early Oasis fondly, and recommended to those who are approaching their best work (1993-1996) for the first time.
It can be found cheaper now than it was then, via several Marketplace traders, so BUY IT!
