RECORDING STARS

 

During their career it is estimated that the band sold over 55 million records worldwide, no mean feat by anyone's standards.

Racking up hit after hit with almost monotonous regularity for an unbroken spell in the first half of the 70's, Slade were a veritable hit machine and fulfilled almost all of their boyhood dreams as they rattled out their own very unique brand of Rock N' Roll which was heard around the world, although in some places it was heard not very loudly (USA).

From the moment they arrived in the UK singles charts with their cover of an obscure Little Richard track (which was in itself a cover of a Bobby Marchan track!) 'Get Down With It' in 1971 Slade were to dominate the UK charts until the mid 70's with an unbroken run of hits, many of which have become rock classics and passed seamlessly into the psyche of newer generations of fans and indeed have been covered and turned into hit records for other bands notably Quiet Riots short lived career which seemed built on the writing talent of Lea/Holder.

As the bands career flipped and flopped following their initial run of success they were droped by Polydor in 1976 and resorted to releasing their output on their own lable's Barn & Cheapskate until 1981 when following their triumphant Reading Festival appearance the previous year they were snapped up by RCA who handled the rest of their recording until the very end when both Cheapskate and Polydor were once again involved
