          Oasis CD Sampler Discography: This set of discography pages documents the Sampler CD's released by Oasis CD Manufacturing which was founded by Micah Solomon in 1995. The only way a recording artist can appear on one of these CD's is to have this company manufacture at least one of their new releases. Some details about these CD's are available on their CD Sampler Program page. However, they list some, but not all, of the 19 different genre samplers they have released, and they do not mention how many different CD's in each genre have been released, or who, in detail, appears on them. I hope to do this all as best as I can.

          Oasis CD Manufacturing, aka OasisCD Duplication, is not connected in any way with the Oasis record label based in the U.K. See the following for details about the other Oasis label: VH1: Oasis (U.K.) label Artists / Albums. I can find no album list on the The Official Oasis (U.K.) label Website, and no complete discography for the U.K. label anywhere on the Web.

          Oasis CD Manufacturing Sampler CD's have never been available for general sale to the public. They are distributed to "400 to 700 (depending on genre) radio stations nationwide: (College Media Journal) CMJ-reporting stations, Triple-A stations, American stations, Alt-Country stations, and more. It also goes to a fantastic list of industry insiders who have asked to hear each Sampler as it comes out. When we send out the Sampler that includes a song from your CD, we'll also provide you with a mailing list of recipients so you can be in touch with the DJs to promote your music directly." They have also been given away to the public as premiums for Public Radio pledges. They can be found in used CD stores and on-line sometimes at places like eBay.
