This debut album from arguably one of the best rock bands to come out of Britain is one of the finest debut albums of all time. Letting us hear the style and tone of things to come. There is the ballad "Dapple Rose", a sad but beautiful song giving us a foretaste of the writing prowess behind Slade. Then there is the acidic "know who you are" , a song which I believe feels great to sing between clenched teeth, under your breath, when things get you down. Other favourites of mine are Angelina, Raven and Sweet box , they appeal to my rocky nature. I'm proud to have this , and several other Slade albums alongside my Sabbath, Metallica and Pearl Jam. Slade began with this album and helped me and a generation of rockers evolve with the changing face of rock and mature into the old rocker I am........Gotta go and get down, and get with it Bye......

I've had this album on vinyl since 1971 and it's one of the few vinyl records I still regularly play. This CD was digitally remastered (by Jim Lea co-writer and bassist/violinist on most of the songs)in the early 1990s. It sounded like a few of the bass lines had changed on tracks such as "See us Here". All 12 tracks other than "Know who you are" were not released as singles. The band harmonise extremely well on many of the tracks, especially "Dapple Rose". A classy ballad with great lyrics about an old horse that was left outside throughout the winter with nothing to eat but brussel sprouts that grew behind a wall! Meaningful stuff. Seriously, this is a great album that dates back to when Slade were a pub band and is not as raucous as Slade's later hit singles.

I suspect I am like many others in that I first discovered Slade through their more mainstream work. But this pre-Glam gem stands just as tall as their rousing Number One hits. It sounds quite a bit different from the likes of 'Cum On Feel The Noize' but that's probably because the four of them contributed to the songwriting as opposed to just the familiar Holder/Lea pairing. We have rock in the form of 'I Remember' and 'Sweet Box', bluesy style riffs in 'See Us Here' and 'Angelina', and the truly startling ballad 'Dapple Rose'. And throughout the album, we're presented with slightly bizarre themes and lyrics.

I first heard this album years ago when my mum took me to visit one of her friends from back in the day. Obviously I had heard their various glam hits but never really paid that much attention but when I saw this early version of them on the cover I was intrigued. Noddy without all the hair and not yelling about Christmas? Well I was in for a really treat. This is a great, earthy bluesy/Rock album, of its time but not cliched. The song writing is quality and noddy's voice is pure class, it really shows the promise of the good stuff to come (seriously, take away the glitter and you get a good, solid and very underrated rock band). So when I came across the cd, I had to have it. It was just as good as I remembered it, if not better and everyone I've played it to has loved it too. It is a really gem so don't let the slade image of the '70s glam period put you off.

well, this is it. finding their way, from skins to rock, the transition is here, a great rocker lp, sound is perfect to let you hear what unknown groups were doing around this time.. they were gonna be huge!

this is near perfect, and a must for ANY record collection. slade/ambrose slade or nbetweens.. music was changing, slade had something to do with that.

a very very highlt rated lp..

Musically better than the later, more well known material (Jane, Feel theNoize, Skweeze Me Pleeze Me. . etc). Be sure to check out their AmbroseSlade stuff as well if you can find it b'cuz it's just as good or betterthan anything even the Moody Blues or the Who put out. These guys werealways MILES ahead of their time.

This is a good album from Slade before they morphed into the glam rock giants they are known as being (see the haircuts on the cover). There's nothing outstanding on show that's ever going to get this one voted on any 'best of' lists but it's actually a surprisingly good standard throughout.
