Slade Alive!

slade alive

Slade Alive! was a live album released by Slade. The album was released on March 24, 1972, and reached No. 2 on the UK Charts. It has also been consistently voted as one of the all-time Top 10 greatest live albums ever released, mentioned in the same breath as “Live At Leeds” from The Who and “Live and Dangerous” from Thin Lizzy.

The album contains original songs, plus cover versions of songs by Ten Years After, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Bobby Marchan, and Steppenwolf.

In its original LP vinyl format, the album was issued in a gatefold sleeve which revealed a huge cartoon drawing on the inside. This drawing was the winning entry in a competition run the The Sun UK newspaper to design the album cover.

Here is their version of a Ten Years After classic

Top of the Pops back For Christmas

totp

The BBC has had a change of heart about axeing the Christmas Top Of The Pops by announcing a double bill over the festive period.

As well as the traditional hour-long Christmas Day edition, BBC1 will also show – for the first time – a New Year’s Eve edition of the programme. The programme will give an overview of the year. Just last month the BBC said the programme would not be screened this year and would instead be replaced by episodes of the archive series TOTP2.

Jay Hunt, controller of BBC1, said: “With shows on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, Top Of The Pops has never been bigger.

“The shows will form the centrepiece of a massive musical offering during the festive season that we hope viewers are really going to enjoy.”

It’s not all good news though – Fearne Cotton will be hosting the shows. Top Of The Pops was pulled from the schedules in 2006 but the Christmas edition was allowed to live on, on their own merits, until the recent announcement that they were to be taken off air.

Now this takes me back to short trousers and the school disco (before they were made palatible via a dose of vodka in the toilets!)
