Times to release Gallagher recordings

By | Published on Monday 9 March 2009

The Times – they’re a newspaper – are set to release a selection of live recordings from Noel Gallagher made at his semi-acoustic show as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs series back in 2007. The recordings include a number of Oasis classics plus some cover versions.

Tracks will initially be made available, for free, via iTunes – a special link will be published each day in the Times from tomorrow. Then a CD featuring eleven tracks will be given away with next weekend’s Sunday Times, while a sixteen track version of the record will be available to buy via iTunes from next Monday. The Times promotion has been organised by covermount experts Upfront.

Although the Times downloads and CD will be given away, a donation has been made to the Teenage Cancer Trust as part of the campaign, which precedes this year’s Royal Albert Hall gigs for the charity which kick off on 24 Mar.

In case you’re interested, the songs available for download via The Times are as follows:

10 Mar: (It’s Good) To Be Free
11 Mar: Talk Tonight
12 Mar: Cast No Shadow
13 Mar: The Importance Of Being Idle
14 Mar: Don’t Look Back In Anger

While the freebie CD will feature the following:
Fade Away
Listen Up
Half The World Away
The Butterfly Collector
All You Need Is Love
Don’t Go Away
Sad Song
Slide Away
There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
Married With Children
