Editors’ Notes

Even those unfamiliar with the British phenomenon known as Slade might find some of the proto-metal featured on this apt hits compilation to sound somewhat familiar; namely “Mama Weer All Crazee Now” and “Cum On Feel the Noize,” both of which were covered by Quiet Riot in 1983 on their third studio album Metal Health. The piano-pounding glam-rocker “Get Down and Get With It” opens Greatest Hits with frontman Noddy Holder’s signature rasp wailing and testifying alongside handclaps and foot-stomps — like he was a glitter-rock preacher pounding the pulpit of rock ‘n’ roll. The instantly danceable “Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me” sounds like a young Bon Scott fronting Scotland’s Middle of the Road before “Bangin’ Man” makes better use of a cowbell than all the recycled Blue Oyster Cult jokes in the world (dig the slide-guitar on this one). “Gudbuy T’Jane” reveals that the band could sing some pretty stellar three-part harmonies, while the simple catchiness of the hard rocking “Take Me Back ‘Ome” plays like a portal showing everyone where the influence for those early KISS songs came from.
