Repressing of this four CD box set reconfigured into a deluxe digipak. At 84 tracks, this is the definitive overview of Slade's recording career, including rare cuts unavailable elsewhere on CD. Beautifully designed packaging featuring rare photos, a gallery of picture sleeves and an entertaining 10,000 word essay by former Slade press agent Keith Altham (including input from all four band members)

If you love the Beatles, Oasis, or Kiss you will love this and you can see where Kiss got Strutter from
(from Goodby T' Jane!)
It boggles my mind that they did not get them in North America
but got their song Cum on Feel the Noise that gave Quiet Riot a career and millions of sales.
that were due Slade!

So, back to the box... Why does it so well represent the band? It includes so many more songs that you associate with Slade that don't get included on every other "Best of" compilation out there (and there's enough, isn't there?). Some of what I'm talking about: "Know Who You Are", "Take Me Bak 'Ome", "The Whole World's Goin' Crazee", "When The Lights Are Out", "The Bangin' Man", "Thanks For The Memory (Wham Bam Thank You Mam)", ... and I could go on and on. And of course there's all the stand-by's as well: "Mama Weer All Crazee Now", "Gudbuy T' Jane", "Cum On Feel The Noize", "My Oh My", "Run Runaway", etc, etc...
What I really like about this box is that the extra "fluff" as you get with most other box sets I really wouldn't call "fluff" at all. There are no outtakes, demos, half-recorded-works-in-progress like so many groups like to include on box sets. Every song is worthwhile on this collection! I was especially pleased with the inclusion of the two later recordings "Radio Wall Of Sound" and "Universe" - I didn't have copies of these songs prior to this box set.
Bottom line - are you a fan of Slade? Get this box - it's worth the price and you won't be sorry!
