A fine collection including many tracks from Slade's hitmaking heyday, Feel the Noize: Slade Greatest Hits stretches from the group's hit singles of the early '70s beginning with 1971's "Get Down and Get with It" all the way to 1991's "Radio Wall of Sound." In between those two songs is a selection of the group's big, dumb, irresistible, and misspelled hits – "Coz I Luv You," "Take Me Bak 'Ome," "Mama Weer All Crazee Now," "Gudbuy T'Jane," "Cum on Feel the Noize," "Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me." It also features latter-day hits like "My Oh My," but Slade never got better than they did at their stomping glitter-rock peak, and Feel the Noize captures the essence of that era.
2007 digitally remastered two CD collection from the '70s and '80s British glamsters. Rockers is an the perfect companion to any Slade 'hits' collection, as it documents of one of the UK's greatest bands doing what they do best - Rockin' and Rollin'! Here are 37 blistering tracks spanning the period 1969-87. Stylish double digipak with 20 page booklet containing previously unseen photographs by Barry Plummer plus informative track by track notes by Mojo's Chris Ingham.
2006 digitally remastered two CD set, subtitled the Live Anthology, features not only the original Slade Alive! Album but also Slade Alive! Volume Two, Slade on Stage and Alive at Reading for a total of 33 rockin' and stompin' Slade performances! The first live album 'Slade Alive!' was recorded at the Command Theatre Studio in London, for just £600, and released without overdubs of any sort in March 1972. 'Vol. Two' was culled from American concert performances in the autumn of 1976 as well as British dates the following spring. The story of Slade's renaissance at the 1980 Reading Festival has long since passed into the realms of rock music folklore. It was a performance that resurrected their flagging career and several tracks were originally issued on a pair of EPs. Slavo.
Here is the ultimate career reprospective for one of the most successful UK bands of all time. Spanning Slade's entire recording career, it features 84 tracks - monster hits, key album cuts and rarities. It just seems incredible that Slade have had to wait this long for a Box Set when several lesser bands have had more than they actually deserve. Slade were the undoubted Kings of the 70s Charts, their singles and albums were pretty much unbeatable. I think if you listen to this set you will hear the story of a band that reached an unbelievable commercial high and then for some reason when they were making some of their best records the popularity started to decline. I bought this on the day of release and it sounds absolutely brilliant! The remastered tracks are all stunning and it just shows a band with two of the best songwriters ever to come out of the UK.
"Slayed?" is the third studio album by the British rock group Slade. It was released on 1 November 1972, and reached No. 1 on the UK charts.
The album contains two of the group's biggest hits, "Gudbuy t'Jane" and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now", and is consistently said by rock critics to be their "…greatest studio album".
The album is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
Thanks to a pair of Quiet Riot cover versions of early Slade songs, Slade was brought to the attention of a new generation of hard rock fans, who turned around and made their first album in ten years a fair-sized hit…
Glam-rockers Slade are best known for their 1973 smash hit “Merry Xmas Everybody”, which is still wheeled out every December to soundtrack shops and radio shows in the run-up to Christmas. They were the most commercially successful glam-rock band in Britain in the early 70s, outperforming competitors like David Bowie, T. Rex and Roxy Music. In fact their singles sales were better than any rock act
2009 two CD collection of archive recordings from the British Glam/Rock band.

Falling somewhere between the glam of T.Rex and the hard rock of Nazareth, Slade's finest moments came with arena rockers "Cum on Feel the Noize," "Mama Weer All Crazee Now," and "Gudbye t' Jayne," songs specifically written to be strong live numbers that would get kids up off their seats…
