Since their 1972 album, Slayed?, the band known as Slade intrigued me to no end when I was a teen. I was one band that I went out of my way to get music from. As an introduction, Slade originated in the UK, forming in 1966. But it was their progression into the emerging Glam-Rock period that did the trick for the quartet. Over a period of  six peak years, Slade delivered a stunning run of more than 15 Top 20 singles, some of them #1 achievers. Yes, their peak was short-lived, but Slade left behind an enduring legacy felt to this day. Even big bands covered their single hits.

On September 25, BMG will release two versions of a new collected Slade set that will be called Cum On Feel The Hitz – The Best of Slade. A 2CD edition will collect 44 tracks, while a truncated single CD will contain only 12 songs. A single vinyl LP will mirror this track list. The 2LP package will only contain 24 songs. You get to choose which version is going to work best for you.

All tracks pulled for these collection editions are from all albums released (with the exception of Beginnings, which was released by the band as Ambrose Slade), and includes non-album tracks released by the band,
