Live at the BBC = 2 CD = (CD)
Think of BBC1s Top of the Pops at its 15 million viewing peak during the early 70s and a mental image of Slade - stomping, smiling, shining Bacofoil bright - is rarely very far away. But the bands relationship with BBC Radio was not always as joyous or as uncomplicated. Jimmy Young said hed never heard such a row in all his life, remembers Jim Lea, the groups bassist and musical powerhouse. Tony Blackburn machine-gunned our first hit live on air. Ed Stewart said wed never make it. Tommy Vance hated our guts to begin with. John Peel was always suspicious of us. And Noel Edmonds used to call us Never, as in Slade? Never! All were leading DJs on the Beebs new flagship station Radio 1 and all would be won over in the end. We were a fantastic band, Jim says, and I had no doubt that we would make it. The Spencer Davis Group had made it. The Moody Blues had made it. The Move had made it. The Midlands had a great track record. Besides, adds Jim with no hint of a raised eyebrow, we were just so much better than anybody else on the local circuit at the time. The era documented here, 1969 to 1972, witnessed Slades transformation from a self-confessed travelling rock n soul jukebox into the nations favourite glam rock combo. And just as it had helped to break The Beatles and many other bands, the BBC played a vital supporting role in Slades rise to the top. Such is the enduring power of Slades magnificently successful wall of sound and riotous anthems, which earned them 17 Top 20 hits between 1971 and 76 and rave endorsements from Oasis and virtually every other rock notable since, that the world is often only aware of a single, one-dimensional Slade. Compiled and produced with the help of the group, this fantastic collection of rare and largely unissued material fleshes that out by presenting not only the studio Slade and the in concert Slade, but the pre-fame Slade; a tight, hard-hitting combo that cut its teeth on a range of soul, psychedelic, pop and rock covers, while making tentative and highly successful inroads into writing their own material.
