On the "Slade Talk To 19 Readers" bonus track, Holder explains the title of the album came from the fact that there are some old, new, borrowed and blue songs on the album.
Old New Borrowed and Blue was the album that introduced the chrysalis to its audience – not that you'd know it from the opening bellow. Riding a raw guitar line based, very loosely, around the guttural riffing of the Beatles' "Birthday," "Just a Little Bit" cranks in with almost metallic dynamics, even retaining the in-concert ad-libbing that had long since made it a highlight of the live show…
2006 digitally remastered reissue of this 1974 album by the British Glam/Rock superstars featuring bonus tracks. Slade's fourth studio album was conceived and recorded amid various touring and promotional activities in late 1973, Old New Borrowed And Blue is the sound of Slade at the height of their success striking out for new territory and blending their trademark foot-stomping rockers with a more mellow songwriting sensibility. The raucousness of 'Just A Little Bit' 'My Town' and 'We're Really Gonna Raise The Roof' were offset by the understated feel of 'Miles Out To Sea'. The honky-tonk piano-led 'Find Yourself Another Rainbow' was another pivotal melodic moment, while 'How Can It Be?' even saw the band venturing close to country-rock territory (an area that interested Noddy in particular) and the classic, crowd-swaying ballad 'Everyday' demonstrated a songwriting maturity that few had suspected was there - and became yet another top three hit.
This Danish film begins with the famous Dogma Certificate, but it's not orthodox. Not orthodox at all. Handcamera isn't used all the time and there are definitely sound put on afterwards. It as a comedy however with dark bottoms. It is about the girl, played by Sidse Babett Knudsen, who's going to get married, but has a serious problem. She is too much a coward to tell the truth about important things. For example, she doesn't dare to tell her sister at the psychiatric clinic, that she's getting a husband. A Swede from the past, Björn Kjellman, comes in with some life (it's not often boring Swedes play that kind of character). There are some laughs here and some tough conflicts.
Slade may have never truly caught on with American audiences (often narrow-mindedly deemed "too British-sounding"), but the group became a sensation in their homeland with their anthemic brand of glam rock in the early '70s, as they scored a staggering 11 Top Five hits in a four-year span from 1971 to 1974 (five of which topped the charts)…

Slade in Flame is the fifth album by the British rock group Slade released on 29 November 1974. The album contained songs from the film of the same name. The album reached #6 on the UK album chart and produced two hit singles, "Far Far Away", which reached #2 on the UK Singles chart and "How Does it Feel". The band tried to give the album a "sixties" feel, as its eponymous film was set in 1966. Japanese exclusive limited edition 24-Bit digitally remastered 12-track CD album, plus 2 bonus recordings.
Nobody's Fools is the fifth studio album by the British rock group Slade. It was released in March, 1976 and reached position #14 on the UK album charts. It was also their first album (since their rise to fame) not to reach the UK Top 10, and to drop out of the chart after a chart run of only 4 weeks. It would be their last album that would make an appearance on the chart until 1980s compilation Slade Smashes!. The album also showed the band dropping their 'loud' and 'rocky' type songs, and move towards a more 'American' soul/pop sound. British fans accused Noddy Holder and Jim Lea as 'selling out' and forgetting about their fanbase in the UK, as the band had been in the States for most of 1975, trying to crack the market. The album peaked at #14 in Sweden.
