Slade Alive!


Slade Alive!
Rare 1972 White Label Promo Housed In A Promo Stickered Gatefold Cover. LP Is Visually VG++ (But Plays Quietly), Gatefold Has a One Inch Center Top Seam Split. Cut Corner. Mastered At Sterling. “Before The Hits Really Starting Coming, Slade Showed Why They Were One Of England's Best Live Acts With This Fevered Concert Recording From 1972. Set Alight By Plenty Of Stomping Beats, Lumbering Bass, Fat Guitars, And Noddy Holder's Hoarse Vocal Scream, Slade Alive! Finds The Lads From Wolverhampton Goading On Their Rabid Fans At Every Juncture ("Wan Ya Ta Really Let Loose On Iss One"). In Return, The Crowd's Handclap Choruses And Drunken Exhortations Fire Up The Band, Inspiring Them To Take Pub Rock To Glam Proportions ("In Like A Shot From My Gun"), Make A Fine Mess Out Of A Steppenwolf Classic ("Born To Be Wild"), And Add A Bit Of Feedback To John Sebastian's Folk-Pop ("Darling Be Home Soon"). Plus, Hits Like The MC5-Esque "Know Who You Are" And Retro-Rocker "Get Down Get With It" Are Given Proper Live Workouts.” Stephen Cook, AMG.
