Biography

One of Britain’s most popular and enduring bands, Slade exuded pure unadulterated fun. Lauded by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Alice Cooper and Ritchie Blackmore among other luminaries, they’ve been described as “the missing link between the Beatles and Oasis” – the latter, of course, having covered Cum On Feel The Noize and Merry Xmas ...

Product Description

Slade s fourth studio album was conceived and recorded amid various touring and promotional activities in late 1973, and also during the headline-making convalescence of Don Powell. The drummer was involved in an horrific car crash in July, briefly throwing the band's existence into doubt. To the delight of Slade s vast army of fans, Don lived to paradiddle another day. But even as they entered the studio to record the single My Friend Stan , a Number Two hit that preceded the release of the Old New Borrowed And Blue album, he was still walking with the aid of a stick, even having to be lifted onto his drum stool. Old New Borrowed And Blue is the sound of Slade at the height of their success striking out for new territory and blending their trademark foot-stomping rockers with a more mellow songwriting sensibility. The raucousness of Just A Little Bit My Town and We re Really Gonna Raise The Roof were offset by the understated feel of Miles Out To Sea . The honky-tonk piano-led Find Yourself Another Rainbow was another pivotal melodic moment, while How Can It Be? even saw the band venturing close to country-rock territory (an area that interested Noddy in particular) and the classic, crowd-swaying ballad Everyday demonstrated a songwriting maturity that few had suspected was there and became yet another top three hit. ONBB was released in late February 1974 and advance orders helped to maintain Slade s phenomenal chart performance. It ascended to the top spot in the UK, guaranteeing the foursome a latest set of gold disc awards, even before it was racked. Press feedback was deservedly positive, one notable UK review declaring: No one goes to sleep in this show. In several ways Old New Borrowed And Blue has the feel and effect of a Beatles album, say Rubber Soul . [But] whatever comparisons you [might] make, it couldn t be anyone else than Slade.

Slade went through a period of churning out classic songs, which were sensitive, melodic and boot-stomping all at the same time.

Manager Chas Chandler pushed them into songwriting in the late sixties, and by the time of this LP, James Lea and Noddy Holder seemed to have found their feet. In my opinion, Slade were at their peak around 1974 in terms of the depth and beauty of their songs, which, complimented by Chas's down to earth production and the gimmick of the glamour and the songname mis-spelling, just fitted the time right at shifted albums by the bucketload.

A good song is always a good song no matter how much fashions change, and there are plenty to enjoy and love on this album.

In 1974 "pop artistes" were either single bands - Sweet, Suzi Quatro etc or album bands - Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield, Led Zep etc etc. Slade were one of the few who managed to sell singles and albums. Old New Borrowed and Blue was released in February 1974 just after they had sold a million of the single Merry Christmas Everybody. I doubt that anyone would have guessed it at the time but Old New Borrowed and Blue was to be their last UK number one - whether album or single.

There is no doubt that it showed a greater maturity in song writing and arrangement and less of their stomping trademark. To my mind that is what makes it as an album. My personal favourite is "Miles out to Sea" - very Beatley and summery and maybe a better choice for the summer single than Banging Man turned out to be. Here you get Banging Man as a bonus track so you can take your pick.

This album has the variety of muscial style of most of the later Beatles albums which is what in my view makes it their best. Sadly though as Slade matured their record buying fans gave up on them. The Slade in Flame film would be out at the end of the year and Slade would have their last top three hit for nearly a decade but until the early eighties it was all downhill chartwise from now on.

Listen to and enjoy Slade's last number one. It is certainly worth £6.99.

Format: Audio CD
This album saw a new approach for the band. It saw Slade heading for a more subtle approach. It was only a matter of time before they would broaden their horizons. After the last release (Slayed) and the live offering 'Slade Alive' it was time for some serious adult songwriting. Please understand, the rockers are still there. 'We're Really Gonna Raise the Roof', 'My Town' and the very loud voice shredding 'Don't Blame Me' will keep the most ardent Slade fans happy. However, ballads like the breath taking 'Everyday', the country feeling 'How Can It Be', keyboard driven tracks like 'My Friend Stan' and bassist Jim Lea singing lead vocal for the first time (When The Lights Are Out) saw the band heading into a new experimental phase. The title of the album referred to the fact the album contained 'new' songs (at the time), 'old' songs (like the single My Friend Stan etc) 'borrowed' (a' cover of the Undertakers Just a Little Bit') and 'blue' (lyrics) songs like Good Time Gals.
Added are bonus tracks that include the single The Bangin'Man and the B-Sides 'I'm Mee, I'm Now and That's Orl', 'She Did It To Me' and the superb 'Kill'Em at The Hot Club Tonight'. As on the Slayed remaster a flexi disc track is included where Slade talk to '19' readers (another young girls magazine). The last track is taken from the flexi so it is not great quality but good fun and it is on the end of the CD so can be avoided.
So the important question is the remastering any good. Well the answer is this, like the remastered Slayed CD it is indeed a superb job. The CD sounds so crisp. The remastering done by Tim Turan is 2nd to none. You can hear so much more than before and yet the superb production quality of the late Chas Chandler is still there. The added tracks push the playing time up to 57.42.

THis is a good re-master. About time Slade! Also, the new packaging is excellent. It's very well done - and some time and effort has gone into it.

Was this the album when Slade began to lose their fan base?
I was and still am a great Slade fan. I own all their recorded output from 1969-1991. Yet when this album was released in 1974 as a 14 year old I remember being quite disappointed with it. After Slayed which rocked, to me this was just pop. Saying all that the album has grown on me during the years. But I wonder after having had 3 consequtive No1 albums was it because of this release that their follow up album Slade In Flame only made No6 the same year?
So what about the album? The stand out tracks for me are
Everyday which is one of Slades all time classic songs, has Noddy Holder ever recored a better vocal?
Do We Still Do It. A great Rocker.
My Friend Stan. A No2 hit single in 1973. Finally
How Can It Be. Which has a great chorus.
As for the rest of the album I hate to say it, but it sounded a bit like filler to me at the time. I always remember my sister who at the time was a 12 year old Donny Osmond fan and hated all things Slade liking Find Yourself A Rainbow. What more is there to say?
As I said earlier, over the years this album has grown on me, but these are the thoughts I had at the time. 4 stars for anybody else. But for SLADE only 3 stars.
