Oasis’s classic 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’ will be reissued to mark its 20th anniversary this May.

A remastered version of the Manchester band’s LP will be released on May 19 and will include rare and unreleased recordings. The reissue is the first in the new Chasing The Sun series from Big Brother Recordings, with Oasis’s follow-up albums ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)?’ and ‘Be Here Now’ to also be reissued later this year.

The 20th anniversary edition of ‘Definitely Maybe’ will be available as a 12″ vinyl LP featuring all the bonus CD content as a free download, and a Deluxe Box Set which features the LP and the CDs.

Among the bonus content included in the reissue is a disc featuring the band’s stand-alone single ‘Whatever’, unheard acoustic versions of the tracks ‘Live Forever’ and ‘Shakermaker’ recorded in Paris, an early demo of ‘Half The World Away’ recorded in Noel Gallagher’s Tokyo hotel room, a demo of the extremely rare song ‘Strange Thing’ and a live recording of ‘Sad Song’ show at Manchester Academy.

Following in the footsteps their idols The Beatles, Oasis became major stars in the mid-1990s. Taking the Fabs’ template as a model, they added a thick wall of Pete Townshend-influenced guitars and stood at the vanguard of the mid-’90s Britpop movement, inspiring scores of imitators. While guitarist/songwriter/leader Noel Gallagher penned several instant-classic pop songs, the press zoomed in on the extra-musical high jinks and squabbles of he and his younger brother and Oasis lead singer, Liam. The constantly feuding brothers threatened to split countless times (usually after one of Liam’s public outbursts), but somehow they hung together and kept things going against the odds until 2009. The band’s latter albums–written in the midst of numerous line-up changes–while not critically lauded have consistently sold in their millions.
