'SLADE' 'A SEVENTIES ROCK/POP SENSATION'
on 24 March 2014
'Slade' fronted by the voice of the legendary 'Noddy Holder' were one of the
most successful outfits around during the 70's.
'Noddy' was also mostly responsible for penning much of their material, of
course he was famous for deliberately miss-spelling song titles (it was of
course on purpose) ...it just added to the fun approach they had in song
and in their stage performances.
The Hit 'Merry Christmas Everybody' continues to earn 'Noddy' a shed load
of cash annually, the Christmas hit of 1973 smash has charted in various
positions in the U.K on between 16-17 occasions since 73'
The Band had six number ones in the 70's those being ....'Coz I Love You'
'Take Me Bak 'Ome'.....'Mama Weer All Crazee Now'.....'Cum on Feel the
Noize'.....'Skweeze Me Pleeze Me' and of course ...'Merry Christmas Everybody'
They also had a further ten Top-Ten entries most of which were in fact Top three
placings.....and yes several more reaching the U.K Top 30.
They were truly one of the great successes of the seventies.....among some of
my other favourites on board and of course well remembered tracks for many
include.....'Gudbuy to Jane'....'My Friend Stan'....'Everyday'....'Far Far Away'
'How does it Feel'....and....'We'll Bring The House Down' ...just a sample of some
of the other great sounds on board to cherish and remember.
Many of the tracks are of course great 'party-listening' down the years.
This is a great purchase to add to your collection for sure (listening to it while I write)
