When Slade Rocked The World 1971-1975

When Slade Rocked The World 1971-1975

Deluxe Slade box set available in two configurations from PledgeMusic from 16th October

Described as ‘the missing link between the Beatles and Oasis’ (the latter having covered `Cum On Feel The Noize’), Slade are never far from British ears and hearts, having created some of the most beloved, indelible songs in the history of popular music.


Their six UK #1 singles spent 20 weeks at the top of the chart, and overall they spent a phenomenal 211 weeks in the UK Top 40; they had 3 UK #1 albums and spent a combined 153 weeks in the album chart Top 40.


When Slade Rocked The World 1971-1975 pays homage to their phenomenal run of hit singles and albums in the early ‘70s, when they seemingly could do no wrong.


THE SALVO BOX SET INCLUDES  

       4 x vinyl LPs (Slade Alive!, Slayed?, Old New Borrowed and Blue and Slade In Flame) reproduced in their original sleeves, remastered and pressed on 180gm coloured vinyl

       4 x double sided picture sleeve singles covering the key hits released outside of those albums 

‘Coz I Love You’ / ‘Look Wot You Dun’
‘Take Me Bak ‘Ome‘ / ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’
‘Skweeze Me Pleeze Me’ / ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’
‘The Bangin’ Man’ / ‘Thanks For The Memory’

       2 CD anthology of the audio on the 4 vinyl LPs

       Reproduction of an original flexidisc (‘Slade Talk to ‘19’ Readers’)

       10” annual style hardback book featuring reviews, features and memorabilia from each of the key years along with an introduction by Mark Ellen

       Reproduction of George Tremlett’s excellent 1975 book The Slade Story including period interviews with all four band members and a chronology of tour and release dates up to the time of its publication. 

       All presented in a sturdy 12” box with foam fitment

1,000 BOXES AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY FROM PLEDGEMUSIC INCLUDE A SET OF 8 REPRODUCTIONS OF THE ORIGINAL SLADE IN FLAME FILM LOBBY CARDS
