"This release was taken from their two shows at Earl's Court and Maine Rd in England.Kicking off with the jam fest that is known as "The Swamp Song" and then smoothly gliding into the duet "Acquiesce", this is a good indication that the boys know how to rock.There isn't a sour note to be found here especially when Noel sits down on his stool for another rendition of "The Masterplan" or his otherworldly guitar solo in "Champagne Supernova".It was a bit odd to see Oasis perform "I Am the Walrus" with a Beatles look-a-like, tribute band. Tongues firmly planted in cheeks?The one thing that keeps this video from being consistent are the interview bits they throw in between songs. I have to fast forward through them. Sorry guys.This is a better concert video than the previously released "Live By the Sea" as it shows Oasis at the height of their popularity, on bigger stages, in front of larger crowds, giving their all. Outstanding."
Mad fer it? Get this one first!

"Although "Familiar to Millions" tops this one for interviews, slick bonus material, and production value, true Oasis fans should get "There and Then" first. Why? Because Liam's performance here is much better. While the overall band performance on FTM is superb, Liam's voice is weak and disappointing. I hate to say that as I love this band, but it's true."There and Then", on the other hand, captures Liam at his best. You will keep watching this for the great live performances. The video shows Oasis at the peak of their worldwide popularity and it is magical.I keep going back to FTM to watch the hilarious interviews with Liam and Noel and to get a sense of the atmosphere at Wembly Stadium, but get this one first for the music!I should mention that I haven't yet seen "Live by the Sea"."
IN THE GRAND BRITISH MUSIC HALL TRADITION

"The British Music Hall possessed a very strong unifying / communal experience component .... a real jolly sing-a-long to help the masses to temporarily escape the shortcomings of their often very difficult lives. This outstanding concert by what is undoubtedly the greatest living pop/rock band in the world nobily takes the British Music Hall outside under a contemporary sky. Oasis tunes are for the masses ...... are played for the masses .... and are thoroughly embrassed by the masses. The music on this disc is, simply, infectious .... you can not help becoming involved. It reaches deep in the the social friendly part of your soul and places you in the joyous company of your social and cultural peers in celebration of the moment and all that is good in life. Carry on lads."
What ever happened to Rock and Roll

"It seems as if when Oasis left the stage at Knebworth, guitar rock and britpop in general began to die. Shortly after, other than Urban Hymns, the quality of music on the air waves pretty much became intolerable. What started as the 2nd best generation of music with Nirvana belting out Smells like Teen Sprit died at the conclusion of I Am The Walrus. This video showcases one of the best bands at the height of Britpop. This video is truly amazing. If nothing else the video is worth the Swamp Song and Acquiesce when Liam and the rest of the crowd belt out I don't know what it is that makes me feel alive. All of the songs are good, even the acoustic of morning glory. I would have liked to have seen the entire Maine Road show, I have it on CD, instead of cutting to Earls Court. Oasis is truly one of the top bands of the 90's and my favorite. Stacked up against The Rolling Stones or Beatles they have fared well thier first 4 albums. Not to mention the B-Sides Acquiensce, Masterplan, Talk Tonight, Fade Away, and Round are Way. They hopefully will be able to improve on everything else. Also it would be nice if they released Live by the Sea on DVD and the Edinburgh show from 2000."

"Watching the tour Oasis launched in 1995-96 in support of "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" was a bit like seeing the rebirth of rock and roll. I did not get to see their English shows, but did catch them stateside, and what an amazing thing it was to see this band, five guys on a stage, with guitars, no ridiculous special effects (a la Rolling Stones or Pink Floyd) - just playing brilliant music with brilliant attitude. This film, capturing two English performances from the era, is a time capsule of what Oasis' early brilliance and what made us love them before they went a bit crazy. Never have they sounded better live than the Maine Road performance captured here. To be honest, I do not think I have ever heard better live rock and roll than the Maine Road show. Highly recommended, even to non-Oasis fans, for the exhibition of the rock show as power musical performance, rather than effects-laden side show. Absolutely brilliant."
