Oasis Debut At Top Of UK Charts: That's The Story, Morning Glory!

Oasis were smashing records rather than

other people or glasses last week

when their second album (What's The Story) Morning Glory

debuted at #1 on the UK album chart. Morning Glory sold about

346,000 units over the counter in its first week,

the second biggest first week sales for any record in the UK (behind

Michael Jackson's BAD). Those numbers would have made the

album #1 in the U. S. too. Speaking of the U. S., that's where the

group is currently touring, hoping to repeat its UK success here.

Morning Glory also clocked up the biggest first

week sales in the UK ever for an album by a British act. The Oasis

album sold more than the whole top 10 added together, with

Morning Glory accounting for one of every seven albums sold in

the UK last week. Take that, Blur!
