2 x 180 gm vinyl with gatefold packaging. Arguably the most anticipated British album release of all time, BE HERE NOW was recorded with producer Owen Morris at Abbey Road Studios, Ridge Farm Studios, and Air Studios between October 1996 and May 1997. The previous summer, Oasis has played to over 250,000 people over two nights at Knebworth House, in what for many people were the defining gigs of the 1990s.
Originally released at midnight on Thursday August 21st 1997, BE HERE NOW sold 700,000 copies in just 3 days and remains to this day the fastest selling UK album on release. To date it has sold over 8 million copies worldwide. Oasis released three singles from the album, two of which - You Know What I Mean and All Around The World. Upon its release in Australia, BE HERE NOW debuted at Number 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, and is certified Platinum.
The release date, October 7th, is the 20th anniversary of the first day of the BE HERE NOW recording sessions at Abbey Road Studios. Respected music journalist Hamish MacBain has written new sleeve notes for the album.
20 years on from Knebworth, BE HERE NOW still stands as the most unique album in the Oasis back catalogue, and a unique album in the history of rock n roll.
