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.
Slade in Flame is a tough album to judge. It marks the end of Slade's rule over the British charts – the album went to number six (the band's previous four LPs reached number one), but it would be nearly ten years before the band would return to the top of the pops…

Light the Rock n' Roll spark with a Flame in the guise of Dave, Noddy, Jim and Don and their showcase of the rise and demise of rock band Flame. Set in the hardships of North England's seventies working class society and music scene. This build-up from rags to riches is a parody of realism and grit, with double-dealings and harsh unforgiving dog eat dog mentalities, and the golden rule; if you play with matches then you're going to get burnt, in the flames of the music industry.
Reviews for this movie include: `The greatest rock movie ever made' (Q Magazine), `A fascinating and at times incredible piece of work' (Uncut) and `The Citizen Cane of British pop pics' (Mojo).

2006 digitally remastered two CD set, subtitled the Live Anthology, features not only the original Slade Alive! Album but also Slade Alive!
