Spectacular complete set of handwritten lyrics by Noel Gallagher for (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, the landmark second studio album from English rock band Oasis. Used in Rockfield Studios for rehearsals and during recording in March-June of 1995, the lyrics are penned in various colored ink and felt tip on 11 off-white sheets, each approximately 8.25 x 11.5, and include the following song titles: ‘Hello,’ ‘Roll with It,’ ‘Wonderwall,’ ‘Don't Look Back in Anger,’ ‘Hey Now!,’ ‘Bonehead's Bank Holiday,’ ‘Some Might Say,’ ‘Cast No Shadow,’ ‘She's Electric,’ ‘Morning Glory,’ and ‘Champagne Supernova.’ In overall very good to fine condition, with overall creasing to all of the pages, and varying degrees of staining to about half of the pages. Accompanied by certificates of authenticity from Tracks for each individual lyric sheet, as well as one for the entire collection.

On the strength of major hit singles ‘Wonderwall,’ ‘Champagne Supernova,’ and ‘Don't Look Back in Anger,’ (What's the Story) Morning Glory? promptly elevated Oasis from a fledgling indie rock group to bona fide international rock stars in the fall of 1995. Gallagher’s focus on balladry and arena-rousing anthems proved a winning follow-up to their debut Definitely Maybe. The album’s overarching appeal proved indisputable and, ultimately, unstoppable; to date, the album has sold over 22 million copies worldwide, making it the UK's fifth best-selling album of all time. (What's the Story) Morning Glory? is regarded as a seminal entry of the British pop scene, and has appeared in several publications as one of the greatest albums of all time. Used in the studio and personally handwritten by the principal songwriter of Oasis, these lyrics—which include ‘Bonehead's Bank Holiday,’ released as an exclusive vinyl bonus—represent the sound and voice of the leading, most influential act of the Britpop movement. This year marks the 25th anniversary of this historic album’s release. As a complete set, these lyrics are of astounding appeal.
