  • The Blues song "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins was a big influence on this. Jenkins was a renowned left-handed Blues guitarist, who helped launch the career of Otis Redding. His flamboyant technique preceded Jimi Hendrix, who used some of Jenkins' tricks in his stage show.
  • Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants reached #1 in the UK. Japanese copies of the album contain a bonus track: "Let's All Make Believe." >>

  • This was Oasis' first single without Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs and Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan. They left in Aug 1999. By November Andy Bell (ex-Ride, bass,) and Gem Archer (guitar, ex-Heavy Stereo) had joined.
  • This was the first Oasis product to be released via their own Big Brother record label.
  • Noel Gallagher said at the time (quoted in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh), "With 'Go Let It Out,' I know I can combine rock 'n' roll with a contemporary feel and that gives me the confidence to carry on." >>
