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.
