What: Oasis - Live By The Sea - Album Review
Author: Jade Lazerevic

WHATEVER way you want to look at it, there is no denying that Oasis had a lot of great material to offer.

Before band members turned into the brats of Britpop, Oasis was one of the finest acts on the planet and performed to many huge sell-out crowds.

One of its finest performances was during a gig at the Cliffs Pavilion in April, 1995.

The gig was released on video a few years ago and has made its way onto DVD, coinciding with the upcoming release of Oasis' new single The Hindu Times on April 22.

Featuring a swarm of Oasis' major hits from the albums Definitely Maybe and (What's The Story) Morning Glory, the concert also features a few B sides including Acquiesce, Headshrinker, Sad Song and The Beatles' I Am The Walrus.

One of the best things about the live DVD is the fact that the band isn't completely polished.

Live By The Sea lets us hear Noel Gallagher's acoustic version of Sad Song and catch his stuff-up half-way through D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman when he forgets the chords.

Running for more than 82 minutes, this DVD is also probably the only chance many Oasis fans will have to experience the band in concert.

RATING: ****
