SLADE - The Slade Box: A 4 CD Anthology 1969-1991 (2006)
Noddy Holder (guitar and vocals) Jim Lea (bass, violin and keyboards) Dave Hill (lead guitar and glitter) and Don Powell (drums) sold an incredible 50 million records in the seventies, scoring 17 top 20 hits, six number one singles (they were the first group since The Beatles to score three straight number ones on the day of release) and notched 33 top 30 hits from 'Get Down And Get With It' in 1971 to 'Radio Wall of Sound' in l991, based upon their own compositions and a successful live formula of "stomp and deliver". Yet they also remain one of the most astonishingly underestimated rock bands of all time as much of Slade's musical depth and performance was masked by their flamboyant image. It is time now to not just look "wot they dun" but to give credit for what you can hear they "dun" on this comprehensive retrospective and see with your own ears how significant they really were.
