5.0 out of 5 stars Oasis is superb at their peek! July 26 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent four song single set from the best band to come out of Britain in the '90s. Even if you're just a regular Oasis listener, this set is a must have since you can't find Noel Gallagher's 'Sad Song' on any other format. Sad Song was supposed to be released as the last song on Definitely Maybe, but it was shelved until the 'Don't Go Away' single was released.

Noel Gallagher also takes the lead in the Warchild version of 'Fade Away.'

No rubbish here.

4.0 out of 5 stars A treat for new fans but not much for older fans July 29 2001
By Damon Navas-Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Don't Go Away"'s B-sides consist of two rare but already released songs in the Oasis archive; "Sad Song"(orginally released on the vinyl of "Definitely Maybe") and "Fade Away(Warchild Version)"(Orginally released on a U.K. compilation album.) The only new material is a live version of "Cigarettes And Alcohol" taken from the G-Mex, Manchester 97' gig. The version is of course great but it really does not fit with the other songs. If you've never heard "Sad Song" or the Warchild version of "Fade Away," buy this single now! They both posses some of Oasis greatest moments recording. "Sad Song" is an absolute masterpiece. Once again showing the brilliance of Noel Gallagher by himself with an acoustic guitar. The Warchild version of "Fade Away" is far superior than the original version. It is as calm and beautiful as a summer's day on the beach and features backing vocals by Lisa Moorish and guitar by Johnny Depp. Well worth getting for the new fans and only for completist if you have "Sad Song" and the Warchild version of "Fade Away" already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy Single July 23 2001
By "dit38" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This has to be one of the best all round Oasis singles to date. It's just a shame import is the only way to get it. Don't Go Away itself is a beautiful song, much like Wonderwall but with better guitar playing. Cigs and Alcohol is as live and as riottess as we've come to expect from Oasis's most drink fuelled song. Sad Song is another lift from Noel's sensational acoustic repertoire, charting the days before stardom when his relationship collapsed. Fade Away is a lighthearted version a the punk song on The Masterplan. With Noel on vox, the song takes on a whole new life. Great stuff. Overall, typical single from the mighty 'sis, all four songs deserving of an album place, and any one of them could be the a-side. Good work again lads.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an Incredible single May 26 2001
By J. Ricci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This single is incredible. The live version of Cigarettes & Alcohol rocks and the new version of Fade Away is a great reworking of the old classic. But clearly, Sad Song outshines everything else on the cd. It's a beautiful song. Buy this single!

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for Sad Song Dec 2 2000
By "sixtymilesmile" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Only previously included on the vinyl copies of Definitely Maybe, Sad Song has become something of a legend among Oasis fans, and as the singles tend to be readily available, was really their only 'buried gem' which so many other bands have. Until now. This CD single finally gives the masses a chance to hear one of Noel's greta acoustic pieces of songwriting. Don't Go Away is among the striongest tracks on Be Here Now, and teh other 2 songs have some merit (Cigarettes and Alcohol is always a live highlight, and Fade Away is anotehr okay rarity). Worth import price for fans
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my best purchases July 22 2005
By Jon Danuser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are numerous reasons why I would suggest that someone should go out and buy this album. It's an import, rather difficult to come by, so it can be a little spendy. But it is well worth the price and the time you may have to wait in getting it in the mail. This cd single is about your only way of obtaining the beautiful and hard to find Sad Song. Sad Song was originally placed on the vinyl version of their debut album, Definitely Maybe. Since nobody has that over here in the states, most of us probably didn't know the song existed. I did, simply by seeing it performed live on different Oasis videos. This song is Noel Gallagher at his best, just him and his acoustic guitar. This song alone gives us good reason he included an acoustic set during Oasis shows for so long. The man has an ability to captivate an audience, by his wonderful guitar playing, and his awesome vocal abilities. I myself have been fortunate enough to see an acoustic set, and was blown away by it.

Track 1 - Don't Go Away, was supposed to have been the Wonderwall, part 2. But it didn't turn out that way, and the album it was placed on, "Be Here Now," never got nearly the credit it deserved. This is a well crafted song, with a Slide Away feel to it, and has one of the best Oasis moments in it, which is the acoustic outro at the end. Simply amazing, and beautiful. Still a favourite track of mine.. love it.

Track 2 - Cigarettes and Alcohol (Live), is vintage Oasis. A very raw, and straight forward song. Liam's vocals shine in this one, and the energy emitted from this performance is incredible. This is Oasis in their purest form, and gives the listener why these guys are such an incredible live band. The crowd is going crazy for this one, and rightfully so. One of their best 5 live songs ever, in my opinion.

Track 3 - Sad Song... well, I've already gone into this. Any true Oasis fan has to have this, and any non-Oasis fan would be better off having heard this great song. I'm not exagerating.

Track 4 - Fade Away (WarChild version) .. This song was recorded as part of a compilation benefitting children of the Kosovo War. What's so amazing about this track, is it's reversed from the original recording (found on the Masterplan). We have Noel taking over doing the lead vocals, and listen in there, cos that would be Liam doing the backing vocals. You get to hear the younger Gallagher doing some pretty impressive harmonizing. Very touching, and very sincere.. it's an incredible song.

All in all, I'd say this is the best Oasis single out there... and well worth the money it may require in obtaining it.
