Slade: Sladest (Polydor)
Charles Shaar Murray, NME, 29 September 1973
THE FIRST TIME I saw Slade I thought they were dreadful. It was that memorable night at the Lanchester Arts Festival when Chuck Berry cut the live side of his London Sessions album, and they were opening the show on an evening which was to include the likes of Berry, Billy Preston and the Floyd.
