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

Released in the UK in September 1973, Sladest emulated recent Slade singles by going straight to the top of the charts. After relinquishing the summit and hovering around the Top Ten towards the end of the year, it climbed back up to the Number One spot in early 1974 in the wake of the huge success of their next single Merry Xmas Everybody. That seasonal smash wasn t included on the album, but Sladest did contain all of Slade s hits up to that point, as well as several singles released prior to their chart breakthrough and a handful of tracks from their underrated second album (released late in 1970), Play It Loud. Salvo s version has been expanded by the inclusion of three further highlights from the period concerned - the No. 2 hit My Friend Stan, its no-nonsense, rocking B-side My Town and the ingenious Django Reinhardt / Stephane Grappelli pastiche Kill Em At The Hot Club Tonite (the B-side of Skweeze Me Pleeze Me) - plus a previously unreleased version of Hear Me Calling, the track with which they opened their live show for many years. The latter recording, more tightly structured than the classic, build-to-a-roar Slade Alive version (though featuring an almost identical guitar solo from Dave Hill), lay entirely forgotten until recently discovered on a vinyl acetate which was once the property of drummer Don Powell - and serves to further strengthen the appeal of what is, to many, Slade s strongest album. Capturing the band at the height of the glam rock fame, it contains some of the very best pop songs of the seventies.

Format: Audio CD
Sladest was released as a vinyl LP by Polydor in 1973. This remastered compilation includes four additional tracks. 'My Friend Stan' and 'My Town' appeared on 'Old New Borrowed And Blue'. 'Hear Me Calling' previously unreleased, while 'Kill em at the Hot Club Tonite'( lyrics 'everyone gets silly,hot blood can't get chilly') have long been part of their repertoire.
Devon born Dave Hill and Don Powell (The Vendors) collared Noddy Holder (Walsall boy) from Steve Brett and the Mavericks. With bass player Jimmy Lea, Slade were formed. A Wolverhampton Band (Dave had moved there in infancy). Being in the right place at the right time with the right connections (Chas Chandler) and with the ability to kick into the starzone, Slade took off from a local following in the 'Black Country' (I'm an old Smethwick man) into the media spotlight. They were and are a breath of fresh air. Noddy Holder and Jim Lea were the main songwriters.

This 18 track release is in a different order chronologically but does include their pre-chart successes 'Wild Winds Are Blowing, 'Pouk Hill', 'Shape of Things To Come'.
The rest is massive chart phenomena. 'Coz I Love You','Cum On Feel The Noise','Goodbye T' Jane', 'Look Wot You Dun' are all examples of the foot stomping head busting sound just when the early 70's seemed dull compared to the 60's. Performance band with costumes suitably outrageous. Dave Hill's 6 inch platforms (he was 5ft 6"), hairstyles. Tremendous showmanship and loyalty as well to drummer Don Powell who had a horrific accident.
Put this on at a party (or any place) and start vibrating! They could also sing ballads 'Everyday' and 'How Does It Feel' (on their greatest hits CD). Excellent sound and cover notes. If you don't own it advise you get it. Everlasting for everyday. A magnificent rock and pop band that needs to be remembered. They have still individually taken their talents further.

Back in the '70's there was a huge demand for something new from Slade, so they cobbled this together from their best tracks so far.

On Sladest here are helpings of bits of their excellent first album Play it Loud, plus a few hits and early classics.

Obsessed fans might prefer the actual early albums, but for a taster this is a great representation of Slade at the height of their Glam Rock fame.

I Originally received this album for a Xmas present back in 1973, when Ted Heath was PM and Britain was in the middle of a three day week and Chopper/space hoppers were in vogue. The songs on the album include all of their chart hits from, 'Get down get with it to My friend Stan' showcasing the group at the peak of their commercial popularity.
The CD version includes some B sides which any other band would have gladly recorded as A sides and the earlier recordings from their first two records., which also highlight Lea and Holder's emerging signwriting skills and creative talent.
I recommend this Cd not just for the hits but also for the classic B sides like 'My Town/ Kill 'Em at the Hot Club Tonite,' and the fantastic cover of Ten Years After, 'Hear me calling', superb!
If your after a song which evocatively describes the vagaries of transient fame listen to 'Look at last nite,' and your see the X Factor and Voice in a different light

I had this album on vynyl when I was 14 - it was a lovely gatefold album cover and contained a wonderful set of tunes, these were all pre "that Xmas Song" by slade which seems to be their lasting memory... not for me... This is brilliant...

After years of slogging away on the UK live circuit, Slade finally cracked the Top 20 with Get Down & Get With It in June 1971. Coz I Luv You, released the following November became the first of several UK No.1 hits, and just one of more than a dozen Top 20 hit singles throughout the remainder of the decade.
Sladest was originally issued in 1973, as a stop gap release by their record company Polydor, following drummer Don Powell's horrific car crash on July 4 of the same year, in which his fiance Angela Morris was tragically killed.
Sladest contained all of their hits up until this time, and several songs released prior to their breakthrough, (Shape Of Things To Come, Pouk Hill, and One Way Hotel, to name a few).
Sladest is one of this writer's favourite Slade albums - and for anyone (at the time) not familiar with their work, was a terrific introduction to one of THE great bands of the era. More immediately accessible than the raucous Slade Alive, Sladest offered fans and non-fans alike an opportunity to get well into some of the greatest pop songs of the seventies! 4 stars. Kym Jones

1970's a formative era for music, especially Rock music, the sound of the electric guitar took to the fore. Early 70's a sound and a look was produced, GLAM ROCK and the leaders of that genre were SLADE, Rock Guitaring at the best, you had the catchy stuff, the pop stuff and the stuff only a fan of the band would of listened to, that vinyl and turntable, 33 and a third or 45 rpm, era was good, but how we have progressed CD's, quality sound.

Once a SLADE, fan always, and when I came upon these, with no hesitation, they were brought. Recommended for those of that era a definite yes, for those of a now beat, ask yer parents!
