English rock n roll rarely sounded better than a band called Slade back in the early 70’s. Glam-rock noize at it’s best. These guys never get the credit they deserve.
Slade was huge in the UK, and across Europe but never really hit it big here. Quiet Riot made two of their songs popular, but Slade did it better. They were fun and colorful and exciting.
They toured once in the states back then and I missed them.
Slade had a few albums and I bought them all, but played the hell out of this one. It was just fun loud solid rock n roll and perfect for a 16-year-old kid to annoy the crap out of his parents.
They had a few hits scattered throughout the years, including a Christmas song that gets played once in a while called “Merry Xmas Everybody” and “Run Run Away”. They’re influence is evident in bands like Cheap Trick, Kiss, Motley Crue, Quiet Riot (obviously), Poison, Twisted Sister, The Runaways and many more.
Great album and should be in every rock n roll fans collection.
