Early Noel Gallagher Recordings Sold

A rare early recording by Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has been sold for £4,000 (approximately $7,000) after failing to reach its minimum sale price while at auction.

According to the British Press Association, the tape was purchased by an anonymous person via telephone after bidding topped out at £3,400 at Christie's auction house in London.

As we previously reported (see "Noel's Early Work Up For Sale"), the recording, which was titled by the guitarist as "Noel's Tunes," features eight songs that Gallagher wrote prior to the formation of Oasis.
