iTunes Editors' Notes

No Slade fan should be without this stellar compilation boasting 36 tunes recorded between1969 to 1972 live on the BBC, replete with four hilarious Radio 1 jingles and household hits like the British glam anthem “Mama Weer All Crazee Now.” The collection opens with a spot-on cover of Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett’s “Coming Home,” immediately exemplifying the uncanny live prowess of Slade before the band’s own heavy rocker “See Us Here” shines a spotlight on their tunesmith talents. They also turn Fairport Convention’s “It’s Alright Ma, It’s Only Witchcraft” into a platform boot-stomping goodtime jam while their take on The Moody Blues’ “Nights In White Satin” makes good use of a dramatic-sounding string section to stay curiously close to the original version, (though they opted out of the song’s weird spoken-word section). They even manage to improve on Moby Grape’s already near-perfect jam “Omaha,” giving it a rougher edge and harder attack. The last 12 songs were recorded live at the Paris Theatre in London on August 17, 1972.

Customer Reviews

Romper Stomper

I have discovered a whole new Slade. I thought i was a Fan, as well as this one, it has directed me to all the re-issues. Noddy has one of the best voices in rock ... ever. This Band are seriously under-rated. The 2nd Disc is fabulous, not quite up to Slade Live! but pretty close to it. How they managed to just get a crowd off the London streets and get them rockin' is no mean achievement. There are some gems on 1st disc and the DJ intros help bring back that era. The jingles are great too. But the 2nd Disc show just builds and builds, great fun and red hot music. Slade have to be one of the Best live performers of all time.

totally slade

In every aspect,without a doubt the most underated band of all time. lesser bands have reaped such awards.Is there a better band live?This is a another fine example of what great band Slade are. Live or otherwise the sound is unique. Guys,how about a reunion of the origianl band if not that alest a farewell tour for the many old and new loyal fans.

Slade may have never truly caught on with American audiences (often narrow-mindedly deemed "too British-sounding"), but the group became a sensation in their homeland with their anthemic brand of glam rock in the early '70s, as they scored a staggering 11 Top Five hits in a four-year span from 1971 to 1974 (five of which topped the charts). Comprised of singer/guitarist Noddy Holder (born Neville Holder, June 15, 1946 in Walsall, West Midlands, England), guitarist Dave Hill (born April 4, 1946, in...
