Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has admitted he wishes 'Dig Out Your Soul' producer Dave Sardy was on board for the band's previous efforts.

In an exclusive Track-By-Track rundown of the band’s new record with Xposure’s John Kennedy, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher admitted he was so impressed with Dave Sardy's production work on 'Don't Believe The Truth' and 'Dig Out Your Soul', he wishes he'd worked on the band's previous albums.

Gallagher said: "He gets it. I’m a little sad and thankful that we found someone like that after all these years. I’m a little sad we didn’t find it earlier."

Though Owen Morris has been given much credit for his work behind 'Definitely Maybe', Gallagher insists he put in more hours in the studio than anyone.

"He (Owen Morris) was a mixer who was an engineer who knew how to use the desk. I've pretty much done everything til' now and it's so easy for me to sit in the back there and enjoy being in the band as opposed to sitting at the desk scratching my head. I take blame for not giving up control sooner, but one's a little mad in their youth."
