Slade in Flame
The soundtrack album ”Slade is Flame” is now out, thanks to the good people of Union Square Music. The album consists of the same 10 songs as the original, no bonus tracks this time – probably because this is a soundtrack album. It would have been nice to have had the ”Roy Priest” alternate lyrics-version of ”This Girl” on the CD as a bonus, but you can’t have it all. The tracks are as always superbly remastered by Tim Turan.
The CD comes with a 12-pages booklet illustrated mostly by the movie-stills from the original LP inner sleeve. Also it includes a track by track account from Chris Ingham, and despite minor slips it is pretty informative and includes his personal interpretations of the lyrics.
The whole package is very attractive and as this album has always been a fan-favourite I’m sure it’ll be received well with the wonderful new sound and all.
