SLADE………..ARRIVE!

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, November 1972

WHEN A GROUP PUTS out five or more singles in their first year, hits the upper regions of the Top Ten with each of them, and before the year is out it seems every third record you hear seems to be trying to copy their sound, it's a safe bet something big is happening. No, I'm not talking about the Beatles or T. Rex...well, yeah, I guess I am.
